Anonymous asked: But the article states the FBI investigation has evidence that Michael Brown reached into the car to fight Wilson. Would Wilson really be a racist coward if someone if someone reached for his gun?
Wilson’s claim is that he feared for his life.
Did he fear for his life when he told Dorian Johnson and Mike Brown to “get the fuck on the sidewalk”?
Did he fear for his life when he reversed his car to confront them again?
Did he fear for his life when he allegedly grabbed Mike Brown by the neck?
Did he fear for his life when unarmed Mike Brown was running away?
Did he fear for his life when unarmed Mike Brown was 100 ft. away from his car, surrendering with his hands up?
The whole “Mike Brown reached into the car to fight Darren Wilson/tried to take his gun (which would have had to been out already for Mike to try and take it), failed, ran away, changed his mind, turned around and charged at Wilson after already being shot about 4 times” story doesn’t make any sense.
Remember, Darren Wilson shot and killed Mike Brown only about 2 1/2 minutes after initially approaching him. If Mike Brown did attack Darren Wilson, why didn’t Wilson write an incident report? Why didn’t he share his side of the story 70 days ago? Why would the PD go out of their way to lie about the distance Mike Brown ran from the car? Why isn’t Mike Brown alive today so he can tell his side of the story? Darren Wilson made sure Mike Brown would never get to tell his side of the story.

Two scientists walk into a bar
The first says “I’ll have some H2O.”
The second says “I’ll have some H2O, too.”
Both of them receive water because the bartender is not irresponsible enough to serve concentrated hydrogen peroxide as a drink.
the other version
the thing is though everytime a girl compliments me on a dress/skirt with pockets and I declare THANKS IT HAS POCKETS her response completely changes from “oh that’s nice” to “FUCK ME BACKWARDS ARE YOU FOR REAL SHOW ME SHOW ME THE POCKETS”
The one phrase that makes most girls lose their shit, it has pockets.
The struggle is real.
CultureTRIBUTE: Elizabeth Peña (1961-2014)
Saddened to hear about the passing of Ms. Pena. The Cuban-American actress has been working in Hollywood for decades. Whether it was La Bamba, Jacob’s Ladder or Lone Star on the big screen; or L.A. Law, Resurrection Blvd and most recently Modern Family on the small screen, most viewers will recognize the her face. She’s had a long and solid career as a character actress. She will be missed. RIP. IMDb Filmography here.
This is like so simple but so cool…
My style isn’t even my style, I cant afford my actual style
Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores is running to become the first Latina Lieutenant Governor of her state. She’s no billionaire’s wife, no Ivy League prodigy, no daughter of some ruling-class family from Latin America. Lucy Flores grew up poor in a family of 13 children. A daughter of immigrants, she dropped out of high school, got involved in gangs and spent time incarcerated. She saw all her sisters become teen mothers and didn’t want that for herself. When she became pregnant at 16, she had an abortion that she doesn’t regret.
She eventually turned her life around. She went to college and later law school. Yet she doesn’t twist her success into a bootstraps narrative of a self-made woman. Instead, she acknowledges all the support she got along the way. She bears witness to the fact that it was the chance generosity of individuals, and not a reliable safety net in our society that made the difference. Her own lived experience becomes the basis of her progressive agenda for social change.
Lucy Flores defies the politics of respectability. She’s single, childless, honest about her sexual past, and fierce in her advocacy for poor and marginalized people. She takes bold stands on immigration, education, and domestic violence. Her experience makes her an effective advocate, but it also makes her a new kind of role model for Latina women. Like Justice Sonia Sotomayor before her, we are watching a smart, single, childless Latina rise from poverty to political authority. But Flores’ background not only includes the “humble beginnings” of poverty, but the stigmatizing experiences that can accompany poverty, like jail, dropping out, and unplanned pregnancy.
