The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS. 
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Ferguson, MO and Police Militarization (HBO)

Today I fell in love with Jesse Williams. His response after a (now deleted) account, a middle-aged white woman by photo, told him he was losing her as a fan with all this rhetoric.

Exhibit B shows why it’s not that hard to be in love with him anyway.

Chicago is known worldwide for its electrified Delta Blues. Chicago’s also known for its sweet Soul Music. And during the 1960s, those musical traditions combined at a tiny record label based at a famous West Side Chicago record shop. This week, Reclaimed Soul’s Ayana Contreras shares hip, soul-flavored blues from the Four Brothers label. Plus we hear soulful blues from all corners of the city.

For fresh episodes of Reclaimed Soul, listen in Thursdays at 8pm CST on vocalo.org, or tune in to 89.5fm (NW Indy) and 90.7fm (CHI)

Source here. This just happened in Seattle. A group of nonviolent protestors in support of Palestine were being harassed by a WHITE MAN, when this mall cop comes out and maces and detains a black man WITH NO AFFILIATION TOWARDS EITHER GROUP. AN INNOCENT BLACK MAN JUST WALKING INTO THE WESTLAKE MALL. The protestors are actively telling the mall cop that he MACED THE WRONG GUY, that the black man did nothing wrong, and he still handcuffs him and DENIES him water to flush out his eyes being offered by the protestors. I’m so disgusted.
