Constellations

"My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations" This is something I find true so my blog is mostly reblogs of quotes and poems that seem to have been fathomed for me.

BREAKING: Recording captured shots fired at Michael Brown, lawyer says : News

Six or seven shots. A three-second pause. Four more shots. 

An audio file obtained by the Post-Dispatch on Tuesday is believed to have captured the shooting of Michael Brown Jr.

If authenticated, it would be the first recording of the actual incident to have surfaced since Brown’s death on Aug. 9. 

Lawyer Lopa Blumenthal said her client, who lives in the apartment complex where Brown was killed, captured the shooting while recording a video text message to a friend.

Blumenthal said the man who made the recording did not want to be named. She said he came forward reluctantly and feared for his safety. 

The FBI interviewed him for about an hour and a half on Monday, she said. 

A private autopsy showed Brown was shot six times, but did not reveal the number of times Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson fired his weapon.

The shooting has sparked nightly demonstrations and attracted world wide media attention.

Blumenthal said sympathizers to both Brown and Wilson have contacted her saying that the three second pause bolsters their cases.  

But Blumenthal said she thought the recording was important. 

"There was a pause," she said,"and to me a pause means time to think and contemplate." 

Blumenthal would not reveal her client’s name or the exact location of his residence, except to say it was in the Canfield Green apartment complex in close proximity to the shooting.

Nor would she give out the name of the person who received the video. 

But she said she was certain the recording is authentic. 

"I’m 100 percent positive this is accurate," she said. "He is not doing this for the publicity. He has no motivation to lie."

i am seeing a whole lot of concern about the mental health of white people who are staying silent about ferguson, and virtually none (at least not from white folks) about the mental health of the residents of ferguson, and other black people who do not have the privilege to…

A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

I don’t know who any of these folks are.

They were tourists I presume.

But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

(Laughs.)

There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

White people ain’t shit 

"these anons are like, "can i be racist in the rain? can i be racist on a train? can i be racist in a box? can i be racist with a fox?""
