People are giving Wilson money to thank him for killing an unarmed black teenager. Please report this to GoFundMe, as it violates their Terms of Service and they get 5% of the tens of thousands of dollars being donated. Click to report.
This is my message, in case you want to copy and paste:
Your Terms of Service prohibit “items that promote… hate, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” Take a look at the comments that come with the donations on this page and tell me that doesn’t violate your terms. “Support Officer Wilson” is a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.
Reporting this fuck out of this racist shit.
Done. It takes like a minute. Fuck this white asshole and his racists supporters. He shouldn’t profit 200k from killing a black child.
"Tango Negro, The African Roots of Tango by Angolan filmmaker Dom Pedro explores the expression of Tango’s Africanness and the contribution of African cultures in the creation of the tango. Tango was a reflection of the social life of the slaves that were taken to South America — including Argentina and Uruguay — mostly from central Africa, particularly from the former Kongo Kingdom.
Director Dom Pedro reveals the depth of the footprints of the African music on the tango, through this rich movie combining musical performances and interviews from many tango fans and historians in Latin America and Europe, including the renowned Argentinean pianist Juan Carlos Caceres.”
Directed by Dom Pedro, 2013, 93 min., France, Documentary , French/Spanish/ English subt. - US Distributors - ArtMattan Films www.AfricanFilm.com

Do you guys think there would be less racism? Or just more denial?
interesting. our goal would have to be a truly integrated history with all peoples histories cause how could adding just black history help racism against, for instance, asian-americans?
and overall, i say no.. even an integrated history in schools wouldn’t lessen racism because the generations aren’t just getting racist messages from school history courses. they’re getting it from all entertainment mediums and then from their families and their politicians (and even their religion).
introduction of integrated history may help a little to combat these but most schools can’t even teach the crap they are already supposed to be teaching effectively. as a whole, the education system as it stands today cannot be trusted to do anything positive for black children. the whole entire system needs to be completely reevaluated and reformed before we can even teach integrate history. and how the hell are we gonna reform education? they don’t want things to get better. it benefits them if it stays the same. we can’t even get them to convict after killing us. it would be a fight just to get the history changed. and then, after all that, would it be effective?
i’ve seen white students sit in required “ethnic, non-western” courses in college and learn NOTHING and act resistant towards the professors. maybe the information came too late.. or maybe it just wasn’t enough.
you can’t teach black histor alongside white “history” the latter is propaganda used to legitimize white people’s false sense of superiority.
Black history is world history told from the perspective of those impacted by an overarching system of oppression and it’s actual impacts and reality.
Black kids are uncomfortable with being stalked and killed. I don’t give a fuck if you’re uncomfortable with people reblogging this shit just because you “come to tumblr for an escape”. This is reality for a lot of people. Grow the fuck up.
i don’t wanna live like this
James Baldwin on “looting” (via x).
"you’re accusing a captive population, who has been robbed of everything of looting"
the most important statement in that paragraph.
Black people are essentially still captives, the laws are worked and enforced in such a way to keep us prisoners in our own homes, our own neighborhoods, and on our own blocks.
Ferguson’s starting to feel a lot like this.
People are going to believe that Darren Wilson was “beat up to the point of unconsciousness” with facial and eye socket fractures before he shot Michael Brown.
Yet he had enough good sense and spatial awareness to shoot him 6 times from 35 feet away. Two to the head.
But okay “to the point of unconsciousness.”
NASA presents Robo-Glove - a wearable human grasp assist device
Researchers at the NASA Johnson Space Center in collaboration with General Motors have designed and developed Robo-Glove, a wearable human grasp assist device, to help reduce the grasping force needed to operate tools for an extended time or for repetitive motion tasks. This wearable device allows the user to tightly grip tools and other items for longer periods of time without experiencing muscle discomfort or strain. The Robo-Glove also has potential applications in prosthetic devices, rehabilitation aids, and people with impaired or limited arm and hand muscle strength.
The Robo-Glove is a patented technology available for commercial technology licensing. For more information about Robo-Glove and other technology license opportunities, visit:http://technology.jsc.nasa.gov
