I’m tired of being desensitized to the murder of black men. I don’t give a f**k if it’s by police or peers. This s**t is not normal. Rapper J. Cole, in a statement on his blog about police brutality in Ferguson, Mo. (via dailydot)

Not one person has unfollowed me, even with my Ferguson posts lately. 

Thank you all so much. I feel very strongly about this.

I am so proud of my people.

I am so proud we are standing our ground and not allowing michael brown’s death just become apart of another statistic. That we’re not leaving it as just another blood stained memory in the street. I am so proud that we’re fighting. That we’re not sitting around waiting for a hand out from white people. We’re standing together, strong, supporting each other and fighting for what we deserve.

I am so in love with my people.

I think this is very accurate, mostly because this show was years ago, this might have been funny but it’s now today’s reality. Hands up people lets give ferguson hell.
I’m going to tell you, in the midst of chaos, when officers are running around, we’re not sure who’s a journalist and who’s not, and yes, when I see somebody with a $50,000 camera on their shoulder, I’m pretty sure, but when some journalists are walking around, and all you have is a cell phone, because you’re from a small media outlet… We may take some of you into custody, but when we do take you into custody and we have found out you’re a journalist, we have taken the proper action.

J cole is the new Tupac. I swear. There is a big difference between tweeting about the situation and actually being on the scene with the people. Much respect to cole world.

wishing i could be in Ferguson right now. i would love to stand with them. so glad that they are not getting scared and shutting up, that is what they want. our constitutional rights do not have a curfew!
