so tumblr staff can mobilize for net neutrality but not for #JusticeForMikeBrown
Net Neutrality is kinda a bigger issue.
A bigger issue……than the murder of an innocent black kid……? Net neutrality is more important than unpunished murder? This is wild
#firstworldproblems at its finest, ya’ll. I have seen tumblr go out of their way for National Aviation Day, National Donut Day, even support National Weed Day and now this internet thing, but how about spending some time educating folks on #realworldproblems? Most of these people on Tumblr don’t even know about Mike Brown or Palestine or they do and they don’t want it the truth to dirty up their hipster blogs. You have people being murdered for just existing. Just for breathing. Maybe if I put an artsy picture of a Starbucks coffee or a hipster girl being cute in the pictures of the Mike Brown protests and what’s happening in Palestine, #wouldyoulookthen?

Me: 20 pieces of chicken nuggets and three extra dipping sauces.
Relieved Mother: That’s all?
Me: *thinks about it* I’ll take some cash, but I still want the chicken nuggets too.
You fantasize about resistance and revolution and yet you are willing sheep in a real dystopia. Person of color slain in cold blood remembered with twisted lies portrayed by filtered media that paint these victims as the postpartum villains. If you think Ferguson doesn’t pertain to you then you’re wrong. If you think Ferguson doesn’t pertain to you then you are apart of the problem.
i always try to catch my mirror self in a good mood, but she never looks too happy to see me. maybe i’ll try again tomorrow.
