Ladies and gentlemen, Ferguson police.
Straight up white supremacists.
this is exactly how they’ve always talked to us, this is how cops in NY speak to little brown and black kids as young as 12 and 13 up to 18 and 19 and so on. this isn’t because there’s aggression from riots this is just how they speak about us and think of us.
It upsets me that people are always trying to say this is how cops talk to us (yes, I have had a cop point a gun in my face before) and nobody believes it until Anderson Cooper puts it on television.
"No one loves anyone else; he loves
What he finds of himself in the other.
Don’t fret if others don’t love you. They feel
Who you are, and you’re a stranger."
