Living While Black

Caitlin. 25. Seattle.

Good morning to all my dreamers and doers 💜 What does success look like to you? For me, it looks like owning my own business and not having anyone but myself to answer to. Today, let’s visualize what we want and go get it! What do you have to lose? #thinkthursday #morningmemo

Reporters confirm that police & advisors concealed the identity of Darren Wilson until he could delete all social media & move out of state.

Wow though. Darren Wilson, Ferguson’s PD and the rest of his and their supporters are an extra special breed of scumbag. What incriminating shit did he have online that needed to be swept under the rug so quickly?

I guarantee you there was some racist shit on his facebook

Oh, 100%.

for as disgusted as we often are with the knowledge that facebook, twitter and etc actually hold on to our activity logs and etc even after we’ve deleted them, THIS is when that comes in handy.prosecutors should reach out to all these social media platforms and make some inquires. as a former IT guy i can tell you that very rarely does deleting actually mean deleted.in the macro view, not only does this incriminate him, it’s pretty damn clear that this ENTIRE POLICE FORCE is dirty as fuck. in no version of this that we would label as justice can this entire department not be broken up and some serious jail time spread around.

Race is constant. You’re tired of hearing about it? Imagine how fucking exhausting it is living it. Jon Stewart addressing Fox News’s (white) correspondents whining about hearing about race issues in the United States (via recklessinsanity)

grown. ass. men.
you scared she gonna strike out yr precious baby boy? OH TOO LATE.

they were doing a special on her on one of the news channels at the gym. i didnt have the headphones so i couldnt hear the story, but one of the photos they showed was of a little girl in the crowd holding up a sign that said “I want to throw like a girl.” For every pathetic, insecure grown man who is threatened by this amazingly talented girl, hopefully there is another little girl who is inspired. But that she has to put up wit this kind of abuse even though she is OBJECTIVELY the best pitcher in the league right now and can throw a ball SEVENTY MILES PER HOUR is absolutely uncalled for. She is truly phenomenal, and those dads can all go eat shit and live

Go on with your bad self

I love that, in a brief interview I got to see, she stated that her main goal was to have more girls play ball so that “we could maybe get our own locker room.” Like, that’s all she wanted, and then she went back to talking about how winning is a TEAM effort and that the reporter should interview the rest of the team, too.I LOVE THIS ONE.

The Events in Ferguson will one day make a great movie for white people to feel guilty about and give an academy award to

and the story will revolve around a white journalist who ultimately realizes that wow, we’re all human

A human being should NEVER have to endure what Michael Brown, Eric Gardner, and Trayvon Martins parents, friends and community experienced. In America, a black person may never have equality but we CAN achieve justice. Personally I am mentally, emotionally and spiritually tired but the fight must go on. Let’s keep his name alive by continuing the conversation.  Justice for Mike Brown. #mikebrown #handsup #dontshoot
