A girl on my fb posted a link to a blog entry from this cop in St. Louis who wants everyone to know he’s a nice guy and he’s still going about his normal routine, making sure to specifically cite instances when he was nice to black people, & she was like, “Wow see we need more stories like this, support our police officers, can’t believe this gets overlooked by the biased news outlets who only publicize a few extorted stories!”
And yeah okay positivity, whatever, hooray. But the main source of info from Ferguson has been twitter??? And idk, all the rest of her posts are pics and boring shit about her perfect white family and her infant son who’s apparently following right in his daddy’s military footsteps -already- so yeah I see the angle she’s looking from but it’s mighty narrow
Sometimes I think racism (and like narrow-mindedness) occupies a really troubled minority of the population… But times like this… Idk what the hell is wrong with this planet?
