@OwningMyTruth: White people are more worried about “freedom of the press” than the assault on black lives and bodies

This is so disgusting. It’s racial profiling and all it does is add problems.

And this is it. This shows how so many white people think and, brilliantly, also reveals that this is what they think of as “racial profiling” since they have never (and will never) experience what actual racial profiling is like. Is this the extent of the injustice that you feel right now? That black people are calling out structural violence against our bodies and lives by white and non-black people and speaking truth to power against white supremacist power structures? A community is being occupied and militarized to assault and silence black people after Darren Wilson murdered a member of their community, but you’re the victim? Ferguson police are trying to cover this up and justify the death of yet another black person (because remember, this happens every 28 hours to black people and isn’t “random”), but it’s about you, right? Not the fact that mainstream media outlets again and again are focusing their reports on the white journalists and caring nothing about the dozens of black people who had been assaulted and arrested during the protests in Ferguson. How about that the headline of the lead trending story on Politico for the last 3 days was “Reporters arrested in Ferguson," no mention of black life or Mike Brown, no mention of the antiblackness and surveillance which are central here and have always been a part of black life, no mention of the fact that if this were a white neighborhood this militarization, silencing and brutality would be unimaginable, while it’s simply par for course in a long history of this country’s assault against black people and black life.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- white people have a huge victim complex. Black people are being assaulted, hurt and killed as we speak in a militarized, occupied town simply for demanding accountability from the police for the murder of a child in their community, and all you can say is that you are being “racially profiled” or wax obtusely about “not all white people”? How selfish and narcissistic can you be? How ahistorical is your perspective? You have enough time to write bullshit like this on tumblr, but not enough to have some damn sense and use Google and see how many  articles are out there (by and large by white people) bemoaning the assault on journalists in Ferguson and giving short shrift to the black lives which were brutalized long before, during and after them? The number of comments on this post and others that I’ve gotten saying that they as white people are getting “racially profiled” right now is absurd, even with the violence against black life in Ferguson so prominently on display, and it goes to show you that for all the time you people waste saying “not all white people,” at the end of the day the vast majority of you play true to script and are the racists you try to separate yourselves from and demonize.

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.

black privilege….

they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution it’s really scaryit’s really infuriatingit’s really exhausting
