Ferguson MO is America’s Selfie
"When a person takes a selfie that they dislike, it is usually deleted. He or she makes adjustments, retakes the picture and, if approved, shares it with the world. While America cannot delete her past history of slavery, oppression, disenfranchisement and mass murder she has been given an opportunity to make adjustments. Her next selfie does not have to look like her last. If she refuses to make those adjustments, at some point what you see in Ferguson you will see in every city throughout the United States of America. Justice for the Black, Brown, poor and oppressed is America’s final exam." -Brother Jesse Muhammad

This 1020 tho.
I live in a place called Alpine, New Jersey. Live in Alpine, New Jersey, right? My house costs millions of dollars.
[some whistles and cheers from the audience]
Don’t hate the player, hate the game. In my neighborhood, there are four black people. Hundreds of houses, four black people. Who are these black people? Well, there’s me, Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z and Eddie Murphy. Only black people in the whole neighborhood.
So let’s break it down, let’s break it down: me, I’m a decent comedian. I’m aaight.
Mary J. Blige, one of the greatest R&B singers to ever walk the Earth. Jay-Z, one of the greatest rappers to ever live. Eddie Murphy, one of the funniest actors to ever, ever do it.
Do you know what the white man who lives next door to me does for a living? He’s a fucking dentist! He ain’t the best dentist in the world…he ain’t going to the dental hall of fame…he don’t get plaques for getting rid of plaque. He’s just a yank-your-tooth-out dentist.
See, the black man gotta fly to get to somethin’ the white man can walk to."
German journalist Ansgar Graw, as translated from German and quoted in "6 more journalists arrested in Ferguson protests" at CNN.com
