Tear gas is banned in international warfare — and in use in Ferguson, MO
http://www.vox.com/2014/8/14/6001995/ferguson-missouri-tear-gas-painful
In case anyone didn’t know, the use of tear gas was banned in international warfare at the Geneva Convention. These are human rights violations, people. Ferguson PD needs to be put in front of a UN board as war criminals. They are also arresting and detaining journalists.
Stay woke.

Stay woke.

The term “tear gas” is a misnomer. For one thing, “tear gas” seems to imply something innocuous— you would think it’s just a chemical that makes you tear up. In fact, tear gas is a dangerous, potentially lethal chemical agent which is outlawed under the Chemical Weapons Convention for use during wartime. As the Omega Research Foundation argues: “Less-lethal weapons are presented as more acceptable alternatives to guns. But these weapons augment rather than replace the more lethal weapons. Euphemistic labels are used to create the impression that these weapons represent soft and gentle forms of control. CS is never referred to by the authorities as vomit gas, in spite of its capacity to cause violent retching.” NGO Physicians for Human Rights believes that “ ‘tear gas’ is a misnomer for a group of poisonous gases which, far from being innocuous, have serious acute and longer-term adverse effects on the health of significant numbers of those exposed.”

"We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves."

1:23 AM: We literally laid in someone’s backyard for what seemed like an eternity while tanks rolled down the streets #Ferguson

1:26 AM: I’m live tweeting because there’s a media blackout. #Ferguson

1:33 AM: I’m so shaken. They’re literally just rolling around throwing tear gas into neighborhoods-not aggressive crowds. #Ferguson

1:34 AM: I was pouring milk over one guys eyes when they came back around and threw another at us. #Ferguson

1:51 AM: Let me repeat, THEY ARE GASSING NEIGHBORHOODS not crowds of protestors.There was only a few of us walking. there is no curfew, so why?]

Also, she was arrested earlier that day with Hedy Epstein

& this is why I don’t mind the fact that my people are going hard out here for Mike Brown. ‘Cause of bullshit like this! They ain’t bout to pull out no tear gas or tanks on them. They ain’t bout to paint them as savages. That’s why I say fuck ‘em! My people need to keep going & be heard ‘til NO ONE can ignore them! Cause evil lurks.

How does this have only 7 notes? Whats going on in Ferguson is only getting deeper! They called in the National Guard. Meanwhile it seems conspicuous quiet on social media about it.

The “Shame on the media quit the bias” sign actually made me scream out loud. White people really have no shame.

Like quit what bias??? WHAT BIAS?

AmeriKKKa 2014: “Forever Racist” TwitterEdition

It took me less than five minutes to collect this small sampling of tweets. Throughout the day, I’ve seen even more horrifying responses in the comments section of pretty much every news site. There’s even been a flurry of racist anon comments in my own inbox. Don’t ever fool yourself into believing that racism isn’t alive and thriving in America right now. #staywoke #sicktomystomach
