If your racist uncle or friend or whomever starts in with the completely-oblivious-to-their-white-privilege #WhiteLivesMatterToo argument, don't fight with them. Just send them over to this post.

Here is a collection of articles I put together after I was smacked with the "The grand jury knows all the information and you don't!" defense to the outcome of the Ferguson grand jury regarding the summary execution of Michael Brown by officer Darren Wilson. Apparently, as he was running away from officer Wilson, unarmed Michael Brown fell on six bullets all by himself when he reached a distance of 150 feet in the opposite direction of the patrol car. It seems officer Wilson's gun felt threatened by Michael Brown and needed to defend itself from a fleeing man.

Really, don't enjoy...

Racism Is Dead - Just Like All The Black People Cops Kill ~ Jimmy Dore

On Saturday, Dec 20, a nut with a gun murdered two NYPD officers sitting in their patrol car in response the Brown & Garner grand jury decisions. The racist right-wing contingent immediately blamed the Ferguson protesters, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder and President Obama - a bunch of black people they know of (just as Jon Stewart pointed out earlier). You know what they didn't blame? The rising anger over police never being prosecuted for the daily murdering of unarmed black people. Neither to blame was the unfettered access to guns by obviously insane people in the United States of America thanks to the Republican politicians owned by the NRA. The racist right-wing contingent who cheered at the grand jury decisions and blamed the dead victims then began lying that the black community was cheering at the deaths of the two officers. This did not happen. Perhaps the racist right-wing contingent knows what scumbags they are and are trying to play the "both sides are equal" card. Meanwhile, the left-wing contingent immediately condemned the killer for his actions and expressed sincere condolences to the officers and their families.

Here is the response by the black community to the killing of the officers:
ABC7: Bedford-Stuyvesant resident on double police shooting

Slate: Battered and Blue: Police departments shouldn’t feel under siege. The public just wants better policing.

America: Hate & fear vs. compassion & empathy. Both sides are not equal.
