I think skinny ppl can turn off her song and open literally any magazine, watch any other video or movie and tv show and see their body types idealized and praised
Most of us have followed the terror in Ferguson all week from afar, and I’ve seen Tumblr reblogging and engaging passionately on this platform about the unbelievable police state that’s taking place in Missouri right now.
Michael Brown’s Memorial Fund currently has donations from a grand total of 5,180 people.
That’s less than 1% of the people I’ve seen reblogging posts about Ferguson on this platform alone, much less the millions of people who’ve been glued to this situation across the world.
If you want to make this situation just one iota less horrible for the family of Mike Brown, this is how. GoFundMe lets you choose how much you want to donate. It doesn’t matter how much you contribute. What matters is that you do something, that you add your donation to the people who are supporting this family. We are in the middle of the biggest civil rights moment the U.S. has seen in four decades, and that means something, and it means something that you do more than just sign a Change.org petition or use a Twitter hashtag to express your grief.
We are fighting against an ideology that is so insidious that it has normalized the behavior of cops who shoot unarmed teens and remove their badges and point their guns at civilians and gas 8-year-olds without apology. It has normalized the belief that good true Christian white people should support those cops and support Michael Brown’s killer.
You know how many people have contributed to the Darren Wilson campaign so far? 4200. And they’ve managed to raise $172,000 on the backs of white privilege and black bodies. They believe, in their racism, that justice isn’t justice, but rather a war they have to fucking outspend you on.
And we are letting them.
There is nothing more important than this right now, this week. You have one job right now, and it’s to not be a shitface who sits back and does nothing but make sad faces on social media instead of giving whatever you can to make this right. There is nothing more important than this. There is nothing more important than every one of us sacrificing whatever we can spare to help this family, to help this town, to help this country. There is nothing more important than boosting the number of contributors to Michael Brown’s memorial fund from 5,180 donors to 50,000, to 500,000, to 5 million, to 5 billion people who will not let systemic white oppression win out over the moral obligation to seek justice for Michael Brown’s murder.
Show his family they are not alone.
Show the people of Ferguson they are not alone.
if you’re a female character, you must be perfect or you deserve to die
if you’re a white male character, you can be a neo nazi, you can be a genocidal murderer, you can do whatever the hell you want and you must be protected at all costs
