I LOVE COFFEE SO MUCH I PROpOSED TO MY BARISTA
Hey! Welcome to my tumblr of… stuff! :D
so let me get this straight
an unarmed teenager is dead
a murderous cop is still at large
a mostly Black suburb with 0 murders (minus Mike Brown’s) is at marital law
a woman has been shot in the head
an alderman is in jail on no charges
journalists are being tear gassed
no witnesses have been interviewed by the police
and the whole thing is being tweeted, vined, IG posted and tumblr posted because the mainstream media is trying to ignore it
and now Chicago is gonna be invaded for 60 days
and I’m supposed to stay calm

I am white. I will never understand what oppression is like. I will never be subjected to systematic racism. I will never be gunned down simply for being alive. I will never fully understand.
But I WILL add my voice to those already crying out. I WILL stand with them. I WILL do everything I can to help change the world we live in.
I am white. But I will not be silent.
