My Distractions

A place for my stuff

I am always grateful for new followers, especially when they’re people I don’t know. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Yay, new followers! :D

But all the same, I can’t help but feel a *bit* bemused when I get a new follower whose blog is devoted to a topic I don’t like, and which I deliberately avoid reblogging. It’s just a bit random.

once you start to notice these little turns of phrase you literally can’t unsee them 
'protests turn violent'
'clashes with police'
'violence breaks out'
'rocked by blasts', when referring to gaza bombing 
all the nice vague statements that carefully avoid mentioning an actor, because it sounds worse if you do. this violence just spontaneously started happening, it’s crazy!!!!
i’m really tired of it

We all know the police wanted the riot, they instigated it since the beginning, They love making black people look violent, so they can treat them like “animals” and justify murdering their children without having to pay any price at all whatsoever.

Hate doesn’t breed hate. Hate inspires anger in victims of hatred and that anger is called hatred to delegitimize it and villainize people. If you wanna help people who are victims then first you gotta stop acting like they’re just as bad their oppressors and abusers.

Protesters upset about the smearing of Mike Brown converged at CNN headquarters.

people complain sooo much about social media and “twitter activism” completely ignoring that without social media the only way anyone would know whats going on is through media controlled by straight, white, capitalist men
