Anonymous asked: Who are you getting your Ferguson information from? I'm having problems verifying what's actually happening!

That’s actually what’s taking me so long to update some of my posts; not only is the information surfacing slowly about his case specifically, but I make sure to cross reference at least three sources because some people are just blatantly lying to stir shit up.

Also live feeds keep going down and new ones pop back up but I know some of you are sensitive to video, so

Here’s a list of some twitter handles:

Journalists (All of these are either on the ground in Ferguson as I type this or actively covering events in Ferguson, both Brown’s case and the rallies):

Residents/Legislature/Other:

Instagram Accounts: (TW: Some of these accounts feature graphic video or images of Ferguson events)

Tumblr Accounts:

I’m sure I forgot a bunch but here’s a start. I’ll update it periodically and reblog. Some of it is compilations from a bunch of sources, some is original content. Disclaimer: I’m not vouching for any other content on any of these blogs/twitters/instagrams or any that may be posted after this list but as of right now, the information regarding Ferguson and discussions taking place about the rallies/police and Mike Brown’s death seems accurate.

if you want to be included on any of these lists, shoot me a message with your web-address and I’ll check it out

You will find everything I’ve posted under tagged/ferguson, tagged/police-brutality or tagged/michael-brown

updated and combined.

The cop who shot a dog in front of its 6 year old owner was fired after outrage from the community and a “Justice for Apollo” campaign.

The cop who shot an unarmed black teen is on paid leave and remains protected by his department. So far, days of outrage and protest have still not brought any justice to Mike Brown.

In America, in 2014, the life of a black man is valued less than that of a dog.

Literally.

And don’t trip: “we” in this case is black people, because white people wouldn’t have to have internet campaigns calling for justice. That officer would be in jail right now, not out of town on paid vacation.

Facts.

Don’t Let It Happen Here
By Charles Mingus

One day they came and they took the communists, 
And I said nothing because I was not a communist.

One day they burned down the Catholic churches. 
And I said nothing because I was born a Protestant.

One day they came and they took the unionists, 
And I said nothing because I was not a unionist.

One day they came and they took the people of the Jewish faith, 
And I said nothing because I was had no faith left.

Then one day they came and they took me. 
And I could say nothing because I was guilty as they were, 
For not speaking out and saying that we all have a right to freedom.

Oh Lord, don’t let it happen here
Oh Lord, don’t let it happen here
Oh Lord, don’t let it happen here
Oh Lord, don’t let it happen here

Yes I was guilty, as guilty as they were
For not speaking out and saying that we all have a right to freedom.
So don’t 
Let it 
Happen 
Here.
