    i promise to reblog this every time it shows up on my dash

    ok i always thought this graphic was weird because it only adds up to 68%, and i doubted asians, native americans, and other races accounted for 32%. so i did some more research, and the numbers are a bit different:

    white: 49.5%
    black: 26.3%
    hispanic/latino: 20.2%
    other: 4%

    also keep in mind that 48.7% of SNAP recipients are children. it’s a vital program

  12. "There are glances in Zurich, where I am spending the summer, and there are glances in New York City, which has been my home for fourteen years. There are glances all over Europe and in India, and anywhere I go outside Africa. The test is how long the glances last, whether they become stares, with what intent they occur, whether they contain any degree of hostility or mockery, and to what extent connections, money, or mode of dress shield me in these situations. To be a stranger is to be looked at, but to be black is to be looked at especially."

    The New Jim Crow

    1. Ferguson, Missouri has a population of approximately 21,000 people — roughly 75% of those residents are Black

    2. The Ferguson police department has around 530 cops —less than 5 of them are Black

    3. Ferguson had *zero* homicides for all of 2014 —until Michael Brown was murdered by Darrin Wilson

    4. Things you should know: Five Myths About Black-on-Black Crime

    5. Michael Brown was 18yrs old and was about to begin college. Brown had no criminal record, and despite the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign, Mike Brown PAID FOR the cigars —those facts are all important and should be known, but even if Brown was a high school dropout with prior arrests who stole the cigars, 1) it wouldn’t have made his life any less valuable, 2) we have a court system and those are not capital offenses and 3) it doesn’t change the fact that the cop who killed him, Darren Wilson, had no idea about Brown’s personal history when he executed Brown. Wilson saw only a Black teen deemed either “too uppity” or “suspicious” because of his skin color
