Anonymous said: Who are you getting your Ferguson information from? I'm having problems verifying what's actually happening!
That’s actually what’s taking me so long to update some of my posts; not only is the information surfacing slowly about his case specifically, but I make sure to cross reference at least three sources because some people are just blatantly lying to stir shit up.
Also live feeds keep going down and new ones pop back up but I know some of you are sensitive to video, so
Here’s a list of some twitter handles:
Journalists (All of these are either on the ground in Ferguson as I type this or actively covering events in Ferguson, both Brown’s case and the rallies):
- Amanda M Sakuma
- Scott Olson
- Kerry Picket
- Lisa Brown
- Alice Speri
- Tim Pool
- Claire Ward
- Christopher Hayes
- Greg Thomas
- Zellie Imani
- Cherrell Brown
- Elon James White
- Maria Chappell Nadal
- Miss Angela Davis
- Edward [American Flag tshirt with the tear gas canister]
Instagram Accounts: (TW: Some of these accounts feature graphic video or images of Ferguson events)
- The People’s Record
- Female Villian
- The Political Freakshow
- Pax Americana
- Im Not Havin’ It
- Securely Insecure
- Olitz Me
- Narcileptic Narcissus
- I Write About Feminism
- Optical Dispersion
I’m sure I forgot a bunch but here’s a start. I’ll update it periodically and reblog. Some of it is compilations from a bunch of sources, some is original content. Disclaimer: I’m not vouching for any other content on any of these blogs/twitters/instagrams or any that may be posted after this list but as of right now, the information regarding Ferguson and discussions taking place about the rallies/police and Mike Brown’s death seems accurate.
if you want to be included on any of these lists, shoot me a message with your web-address and I’ll check it out

He just put his foot in his mouth, big time.
llmaooo I just……
the thing to understand with this — and im talking from the position of a white person who has lived among & even been a part of republican groups in the past — is that this is not a slip of the tongue. this is not a slip of the tongue.
He’s going to backpedal here (IF he gets called out on it), but he didn’t misspeak, don’t let him say he did.
He didn’t accidentally reveal anything. Lt. gov Peter Kinder absolutely believes and is willing to publicly state that its ~~anglo american civilization~~~~~~ that is responsible for Justice and Laws and Democracy. This might not even seem like a Controversial Statement to him, and is the natural extension of the (equally fucked up and fucking Wrong) “we should preserve what our Founding Fathers wanted and the systems They Set Up founding fathers founding fathers founding fathers” argument/train of thought.
Reblogging for commentary. Thanks.
The community in Ferguson is struggling to come up with the money to keep their kids fed, since school has been cancelled all this time, yet people have donated over $12,000 to the murderer who started all of this in the last 24 hours alone. Think about that. And then donate to the right cause.
