    Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time. 

    Source for Brown, Source for Bundy.

    Christ. smh.

    "There are more good cops than bad cops"

    image

    If the good cops aren’t actively putting an end to the shit bad cops do then they ain’t “good.”

    Being good takes more than refraining to shoot black people for sport. The “good cop” standard is so fucking low I laugh to keep from crying

    I see no lies here

    1. Spend time with contented people, and those who are grateful for what they have in life.
    2. Choose to celebrate the good things in life, even when things are tough, or much harder than you’d like.
    3. Brighten up the lives of others you encounter with random acts of kindness – and helping when…

Miles Davis covered in blood after an altercation with police.

"Altercation" sounds so polite, like it was a mutual thing and not one man getting assaulted by the police. Miles got beat up by the police.
The cops assaulted Miles because he was black. He was standing outside Birdland where he just performed and was taking a break. His name was on the marquee. They saw him escort a white female friend from the club into a taxi and then they approached him after as he was taking a smoke break. The cops told him to “move on”. Miles said he was playing at the club and was on break. They weren’t hearing any of that. One cop then punched him in the stomach, while another one cracked him on the head with a nightstick. That’s why he’s covered in blood. He was a victim of police brutality.

    Let us be vividly clear about this.

    What the New York Times did to Michael Brown today was not merely slander. It wasn’t a case of a lack of journalistic integrity.

    Highlighting that a black teenager was “no angel” on the day he is being laid to rest after being hunted and…

    Besides Michael Brown, Whom Else Does The New York Times Call “No Angel”? →

    thotty-by-nature:

    zuky:

    Here’s who comes up in Vanity Fair’s search of people the New York Times has called “no angel”:

    • Al Capone, white mobster
    • James “Whitey” Bulger, white convicted murderer
    • Donald Manuel Paradis, white motorcycle gangster on death row
    • Erwin Rommel, Nazi field marshal
    • Clayton Lockett, white convicted murderer and rapist
    • Larry Flint, white pornographer
    • Eric Harris, white Columbine serial killer

    Who else does the Times label “no angel”?

    • Samuel Spencer, Black victim of murder by four white men
    • Magic Johnson, Black basketball player
    • Michael Jackson, Black musician

    Yeah. You do the math.

    what was the point of that article except to further demean a child who hasn’t even been in the ground for a day?
