HAPPENING NOW (9.24.14): The situation in Ferguson is escalating quickly. Protests continue, following this morning’s burning of a Mike Brown memorial, and another frustrating Ferguson City Council meeting. Looks like the same “antagonize over de-escalate” tactics are back online. Prayers to all those out in the street of Ferguson right now fighting for their right to exist. #staywoke #farfromover (PT IPT II, PT III)

septvms said: I think miss Watson is trying to use her privileged position in a positive way for something she believes in, which I think is actually something she should be congratulated on, I don't think at any point she comes off as thinking she knows most about the subject or is best suited to the role, and actually asks 'why' she is there, maybe it is not her fault she was picked but the heforshe org ? but she's using her high profile position to speak out about something that's actually important

ibt-w:

Some people have been reblogging my post saying similar things, and all seem to have the impression that I was/am criticising Emma Watson. This kind of isn’t about her. I quite like her. It’s a little bit bigger than that. The idea that feminism need be popularised, de-fanged, cleaned-up so as to feel non-threatening and appealing to both men and the women who wish to appease them, is the issue.

If Emma Watson wants to use her high profile to champion a cause she feels strongly about, that’s swell. But she spoke at the U.N.. She Spoke at the U.N. about feminism, and her speech completely depoliticised feminism. Feminism is a political movement, it’s not just a word that can be attached to anything or anyone that looks as if it/they might care to end sexism. The purpose of Emma Watson’s speech, of Emma Watson being invited to deliver it, was to give feminism a make-over with words like “fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop,” and, “We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are. When they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence.” Her brand of feminism, the popular kind, is not feminism at all because it is male-focused, image-conscious, weak and ultimately meaningless for women. And don’t forget that “man-hating” is code for “lesbian”, so she might as well have said, “Don’t worry, feminists are still fuckable!” ‘Feminism’ that distances itself from lesbians or any ‘threatening’ or otherwise unappealing women in order to appease men is not feminism. It’s complete rubbish.

Emma Watson was the one who was given the opportunity to address the U.N. on the subject of feminism, which she clearly knows little about. My concern is over the fact that there are women who could have spoken in her place and delivered a galvanising speech that made every man uncomfortable, that made women everywhere stop and think, that made everyone open their eyes a little, that made every leader in the room squirm in their seat. Feminism is not supposed to be popular or easy for men to embrace because it is by nature challenging to men. That’s what makes it a political movement. If you strip a political movement of its politics, it becomes nothing. And ‘nothing’ is not going to end misogyny.

tl;dr: An important question to ask is this, I think: why is it important that high profile women, rather than feminist writers or activists, speak about feminism? I think the answer, for some, is that their doing so makes feminism popular and easier to digest, which they view as a positive thing. The second question we should ask ourselves, then, is this: why does feminism need to be popular and digestible, and what are the consequences of this for feminism as a political movement?

Bringing back the dogs, choppers, charging the crowd, attempting to bottleneck protesters into an area, AND live shots possible fired into the crowd… what the ever-living fuck is Ferguson PD trying to do?! We’re a month and a half into this saga, and they still don’t know how to de-escalate a situation. Pray y’all. That might be all we got right now.

oh my god

Four White guys with multiple weapons were taken into custody. Not shot and kill and left out on the road. They were arrested and given due process. They’re names aren’t leaked. We’re not seeing invasions into their facebooks for impeding trials. We’re not even seeing mug shots. We don’t know if they’re anarchist, klan or anything at all. We just know they left the scene of an armed chase alive.
However an UNARMED black kid walking the streets of his neighborhood was shot 6 times by the police.
This is the difference, the racism and the outrage.
Post racial America my ass. #ferguson #racism

Egregious example of white supremacy:Police officers chase down and apprehend four white dudes with multiple weapons, no one is hurt. A disabled black man with a knife is shot down from 10 or more feet away because cops felt “threatened.”

Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

Fox 8 Cleveland angry with LKWD Music Fest after Communist musician calls for end to capitalism on live TV

FOX is tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

FOX News: “Well, Boots, tell us a little bit about your band and the lineup people are going to hear today?” asked Fox 8 reporter Autumn Ziemba.

RILEY: Well, we’re a punk/funk/Communist revolution band.

FOX News: OK.

RILEY: And we are from Oakland, California, and we make everyone dance while we’re telling them about how we need to get rid of the system.

FOX News: Mmm.

RILEY: How exploitation is the primary contradiction in capitalism. And that if we want to express our power, we’re going to have to be more radical in our actions.

this is an all-Black band, from Oakland, and they’re called "The Coup." *buys CD*

Watch Fox News lose control
