I’m only sharing tweets for those who are not on twitter and can’t see how passionate and outraged journalists are as they tweet from #Ferguson.

If you are on Twitter, here’s a good roster of people to follow if you want to keep updated.

Huge Saint Bernard dog being needy

I have an American Bulldog mutt who is pushing 100 lbs and is the exact same way…thinks he’s a lapdog.

Conversely, I also have a 11 lb malti-poo who thinks he’s a rabid Irish Wolfhound, and a beagle who doesn’t recognize that he’s a dog but thinks he’s a teenage Sherlock Holmes…announces everything happening outside the house and talks back when I address him by name.

Dogs are weird.

Reject the notion that you are supposed to be at a certain place by now.

Don’t measure yourself to some colloquial set of social constructions.

Last words of unarmed black youth gunned down by law enforcement. 

"There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys. Guns aren’t for black people, either.”

from America is Not For Black People

if you live your whole life and then die without making a purposeful choice to become a white ally then American racism becomes your legacy.

I have never used the fact that I’ve been hurt in the past as a reason to hurt other people or a justification for treating other people badly
It’s either I have the strength and energy to be a positive force in other people’s lives
Or I stay my distance until I can get to that point

"When life descends into the pit
I must become my own candle
willingly burning myself
to light up the darkness around me."
