bonding over pain that no parent should have to feel

Emmett was 50 years ago - this goes back generations. Mike Brown was not an isolated incident. Trayvon was not an isolated incident. Jordan Davis was not an isolated incident. Our families have got to stop suffering through this.

Last week, we sent the photographer Matt Eich to Ferguson, Missouri, to document the second week of protests after a police officer shot unarmed teen-ager Michael Brown. Take a look at some of the photos.

MTV’s Powerful Ferguson PSA Puts the Issue Front and Center at the VMAs

With all eyes (or at least 10.1 million sets of ‘em, judging by last year’s ratings) on the Video Music Awards, MTV has decided to use its platform to make a statement on Ferguson. As reported by the Washington Post before Sunday night’s awards, MTV will be airing a 15-second video during the show entitled “Facing Change.” The short clip is simple: a soundtrack of Ferguson protesters chanting the protest’s signature rallying call, “Hands up, don’t shoot” with a quote by James Baldwin:

"Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed until it is faced."

All the laptops at the coffee shop…

I kind of want to jump on a table and yell “GROUP MEETING!! Get into pairs, switch computers, and evaluate each other’s lesson plans. We’ll come back and reconvene as a group in TEN minutes!”

Unofficial P.D.?? No?? Anyone??

bahahahahahahh

Love it.

Michael Brown's Father Asks People Not To Protest The Day Of His Son's Funeral

everythingrhymeswithalcohol:

"I would like for no protesting going on," Michael Brown Sr. said during an interview on Hot 104.1 FM, a hip-hop radio station in St. Louis. "We just want a moment of silence that whole day. Just out of respect for our son."

Brown went on air this morning with the Demetrious Johnson Show, which runs from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Michael Brown’s funeral is set for 10 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 25, in a church in St. Louis that can accommodate up to 4,500 people. Three White House officials, Rev. Al Sharpton, and thousands of community members are expected to attend.”
