Your Ferguson Resource Packet

So like countless other PoCs, I’ve been watching the ongoing horrors in #Ferguson very closely. Like countless other PoCs, I’ve had to endure my share of whites who either don’t know the dynamics that are playing out in terms of institutional racism or are proudly and maliciously spewing as much toxic bile as they can.

If you find yourself in this position, you probably wouldn’t mind some handy resources to educate and eviscerate before utilizing the blessed block function.

The following are resources I’ve found to be useful not only for the #Ferguson tragedy but the discussions on racism and bigotry in general. Hopefully you won’t need them but if you do, here they are. Feel free to repost and share.

    The fact that you just asked a PoC that question, is not only problematic, racist and fucked up but it proves that you know nothing of the dynamics at play. You may want to READ the resources provided in this very post.
