@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.
For white people, racial profiling is a tweet about structural racism that hurts their feelings. For black people, racial profiling could get them killed.

An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”
Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.
Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.
"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.
