"You’re not protecting the people and you’re not protecting property, so why are you there?"
Some interesting commentary from Crommunist, who is a Canadian black man on how he is treated by the Vancouver Police (Canadian) vs what’s going on in the US with Ferguson.
You should follow his twitter, though. I’m a fan.
tbh our cops are still shitty but like 9 times outta 10 they’re just a bunch of losers idk if they do anything but cruise around and eat chinese food
Yeah, I don’t fear them here as much and I would I have a black brother and i’m so glad he isn’t going to the states.But I worry about my mum she lives in Nj
too bad toronto cops are more keen on emulating the actions of their american counterparts…

Oh on my damn dash. I was like these tits nice and then I was like oh shit these are mine LMAO
White folks ALWAYS tryna make something theirs.
I’m actually screaming??
"You are not excused, but you are dismissed."
I gotta say that more often.
What is seriously wrong with white people. WHY ARE YOU PEOPLE SO INHUMANE? Why don’t you have the ability to have empathy towards others? Why do you have the need to hurt others? WHAT THE FUCK.
You pale faced thin lipped demons.
Okay this is pissing me off. If you want to stop Racism, THEN STOP BEING RACIST! This Isnt in regard to the photos above, I couldn’t give a shit TBH. It’s the comments. “Pale faced Thin Lipped Demons” WHat if some one said “You Darkie Fat lipped Monkeys” You’re pissed right? GOOD!

Shhhh. Go mimis.
lmao reverse racism don’t exist. stop tryna perpetuate a myth.
Normally I don’t contribute to posts with an argument, but I must say that this post appalls me.
The woman posting on twitter was just trying to support the cause and show she cared. I don’t believe her participation in the hashtag was her representing the white race as collectively trying “to make it theirs”, I just think she wanted to show that she stood behind all the people participating in the situation. Honestly, I think we should all as human beings (REGARDLESS OF COLOR) realize that it’s okay to show support and participate…it doesn’t mean that persons’ race is trying to take something over as their own. It means that person cares, which I think is a beautiful thing.
my friend, you’re misunderstanding the point here grossly.
this tag was created so that BLACK people could ADDRESS THE RACIAL STEREOTYPES THAT MAKE THEM A TARGET IN A SOCIETY WHERE THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN IS SO HIGHLY STIGMATIZED THAT IT GETS THEM KILLED AT THE HANDS OF POLICE BRUTALITY EVERY DAY.
the point here is that all non-Black people (INCLUDING OTHER PEOPLE OF COLOR, like myself) need to shut the fuck up and sit the fuck down and let BLACK people speak for themselves, because they are not HEARD. you want to show solidarity? SHUT THE FUCK UP.
this is such typical behavior of a White Savior™. what this lady is trying to do (despite her intention, maybe) is detracting from the real issue at hand by polluting the tag with her photo. if she walked down a dark street at night coming home from work, a police officer would be more likely to offer her a RIDE, than to DETAIN HER.
it’s not her right to speak on this issue, because it doesn’t affect her.
if you want to show solidarity, shut up and let marginalized people speak.
Thank you. If whites wanna show their support, they can start by telling their kinfolk to stop gunning us down just for being Black. They don’t need to take part of a hashtag where the action they’re trying to “stand up for’ will never happen to them. Y’all see how well school shooters are spoken of in the media.
This whole situation is ridiculous…
