    “Tell Me Again”

    Tell me again why we should forget
    I see that you haven’t forgotten Pearl Harbor yet
    Tell me again why you say you can’t
    You paid everyone else for their time in the camps

    Tell me again why we should ignore
    The many times you said “you’re mama’s a whore”
    Tell me again why because we fail to see
    The reasons you hung all our men from a tree

    Tell me again why our history you choked
    For chaining us, killing us, suppressing our vote
    Tell me again why we should share your terror
    Our enemy’s long been who you see in the mirror

    Tell me again why you wouldn’t relent
    From calling our ancestors niggers and wench
    Tell me again why so we’ll understand
    And please with a straight face if you think you can

    Tell me again why those little girls died
    For once tell the truth not another ‘white lie’
    Tell me again why now that you live in fear
    It’s about time you felt what we felt all those years

    Tell me again why because we’re not insane
    We know no one’s cornered the market on pain
    Tell me again why is it you find?
    When you cry your tears they are wet just like mine

    Tell me again why, we pray that you tell
    Why when we made your heaven you gave us pure hell
    Tell me again why what is your excuse
    Why you won’t compensate us for all your abuse

    Tell me again why because our ancestors need
    To hear that you’re sorry for your hate and greed
    Tell me again why, why should we forgive
    The ones who detest the mere fact that we live

    I’ll tell you why if I may be so bold
    We have to forgive you to save our own souls.

    "this is the internet, i can say whatever i want" is a super creepy and obvious way to say "when there are no obvious consequences for my actions i lack all empathy"

    Several of the New York Jets players admitted to using the popular dating app Tinder to meet women. And it turns out a lot of other players and coaches around the NFL also use the app. We actually got ahold of some of their Tinder profiles and some of their pick up lines are pretty interesting…

Jesus fucking christ this is more striking than the pic of edward throwing the tear gas canister im in shock. This is so important

it’s become cliche to say “this is what the media doesn’t want you to see” in regards to anything that may stir up the status quo, but in this case, more than anything else to come out of this, that statement is absolutely true

    TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD

    I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops

It's illogical to follow the crowd if they are going to jump off of a bridge; be yourself.
