I am always optimistic about the future, my own future and the future for this nation that I am a part of. Tehre are soem moments I wonder though if we have made any progress over the last 50 years or was that an illusion. is all the hate not just more covert than overt or have people really changed.
I had to re-post this as I saw this from the Public Shaming tumblr
Jamie Foxx attended the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night to accept the 2013 Generation Award. He did so while wearing a shirt that had the phrase “kNOw Justice” above photos of Trayvon Martin and the Newtown kids.
Many intelligent humans would view Jamie Foxx’s shirt as a way a celebrity can bring awareness to America’s young people and remind them that justice has not yet been served for our country’s young victims of gun violence.
Sadly, many humans lack this intelligence…
“This Trayvon Martin case is soooo annoying…now give me my MTV MOVIE AWARDS!”
Props to the guy above who used a gun emoji to criticize a shirt condemning gun violence. Good work, dude.
lmao @ the dude running to tattle to Anthony from Opie & Anthony and George Zimmerman’s brother.
Yeah, fuck Tavon! Who’s Tavon, again?
And then there were people who could not possibly understand what Trayvon Martin and the Newtown victims, all children killed in the United States by gun violence, possibly had to do with one another.
Basically what they’re trying to say, without saying it, is “why is that evil black thug sullying those poor innocent white children…”
Yes, as you can see, white people were pretty pissed. And some were clamoring to know WHAT ABOUT THE POOR WHITES:
lmao. Yes, NO ONE cares when black people kill. The justice system totally doesn’t cater to whites. There’s like zero black people in prison.
“Can’t believe Jamie Foxx spoke out for the dead kid and not the guy who killed him who’s alive and walked away with a scratch on his nose.”
Wow Mr. Sugar.
Thats some graphic shit.
Always liked Jamie fox. He is smart. : )
Thanks for this
Damn. This is fucking terrible. I hadn’t heard of the case before – I don’t watch the news very often, I know what terrible shit is going on in the world, without knowing the details -but I just read about it.
Fuck, so much rascism in the US. When I read those tweets it was like I was watching hillbillies talking during the slavery-time. Fuck.
It was really embarassing but it was very enlightening. The news and media like to paint this picture that we are much more sophisticated and enlightened, and also so forward with our thinking. Im glad things like this happen they serve as a reminder of how manufactured reality is
