"A coroner’s report obtained exclusively by NBC News directly contradicts the police version of how a 22-year-old black man died in the back seat of a Louisiana police cruiser earlier this year — but still says the man, whose hands were cuffed behind his back, shot himself.
 
In a press release issued March 3, the day he died, the Louisiana State Police said Victor White III apparently shot himself in an Iberia Parish police car. According to the police statement, White had his hands cuffed behind his back when he shot himself in the back.
 
But according to the full final report of the Iberia Parish coroner, which was released nearly six months later and obtained exclusively by NBC News, White was shot in the front, not the back. The bullet entered his right chest and exited under his left armpit. White was left-handed, according to family members. According to the report, the forensic pathologist found gunshot residue in the wound, but not the sort of stippling that a close-range shot can sometimes produce. He also found abrasions on White’s face.
 
And yet, despite the contradictions – and even though White’s hands were never tested for gunpowder residue – the Iberia Parish coroner still supported the central contention of the initial police statement issued back in March. Dr. Carl Ditch ruled that White shot himself, and declared his death a suicide."

It’s a tense night in Ferguson, but luckily no outbreak of violence. 

This is still going on. Do not forget

Don’t let the media make you think this is over. Those last few tweets are from today!

These are dated August 24, 2014

People are giving Wilson money to thank him for killing an unarmed black teenager. Please report this to GoFundMe, as it violates their Terms of Service and they get 5% of the tens of thousands of dollars being donated. Click to report.

This is my message, in case you want to copy and paste:

Your Terms of Service prohibit “items that promote… hate, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” Take a look at the comments that come with the donations on this page and tell me that doesn’t violate your terms. “Support Officer Wilson” is a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.

I saw stuff about this bouncing around Twitter; they’ve made roughly half my entire student loan debt in less than a week, and i want to vomit all over every single person who’s given money to it.

Answer
  • Question: why is it a problem when people say i don't see race because we're all human or some other sappy line? i'm trying to explain it to my family and i'm confusing myself and them - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    iwriteaboutfeminism:

    When people say they are color blind, or that they don’t see race, they are erasing the experiences of people of color. They fail to acknowledge that the way black people and white people experience and navigate our society have never been parallel. Saying you’re color blind erases this history, when history is vital

Saddest version of I Want You To Want Me, EVER.  

Sung in a minor key…it’s just haunting.  Like a guy mourning the loss of his relationship and barely holding it together.

Cis people love to shut down people who talk about trans and intersex issues by saying that they’re “only 1% of the population” and thus can be ignored since they “aren’t statistically significant enough.”

By that logic, we can now systematically ignore:

  • Redheads
  • The entire state of Rhode Island
  • Anyone who makes over $500,000 a year
  • Pacific Islanders
  • Celiac Disease
  • Jewish people
  • Australia
