BREAKING: DISNEYLAND NO LONGER HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH
A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society. Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.
Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:
I don’t know who any of these folks are.
They were tourists I presume.
But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.
"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."
There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.
The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”
One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.
There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”
"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’
I’m just gonna keep reblogging this because this is truly how white America works. Like people have their weddings on plantations, Blackface was and still is a major source of entertainment and the biggest movie of all time was Gone With the Wind. White America will kill Black people and then smile and laugh and enjoy their day it sickens me that we’re treated this way.
Cleavon Little did not know Gene was going to say that. The laughter is genuine.
I love that you can see the exact moment when Cleavon Little realizes he’s not going to be able to stop himself from laughing.
Reblogging because Cleavon Little’s smile .
This is so relevant to my life it’s not even funny.
Love “Da Man Wit the Chips” but Jameila White is the new “Protest MVP.” #staywoke #trill

Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.
Black Tumblr, Here yall go!!!
Make this bitch homeless 😤😤😤
I want her finances on the back of a milk carton
Keep on coming out of the dark, gremlins. Just keep exposing yourselves….
I just called Memorial Hospital. I spoke to a “Shane” @ 10:55 am Central time 8/19. He said that the hospital is aware of Guthrie’s comments and are addressing them.
I told Shane that until Ms Guthrie’s employment services with he Hospital are terminated they should expect their phones to be bombarded by calls and their inboxes to be be stuffed.
Hit these craccas in their goddamn pockets. It’ s the only language they respond to with any common sense.
I suggest you all get on this phone campaign.
