Milwaukee Could Be Ferguson

The New Jim Crow has replaced the Old Jim Crow in cities like Milwaukee, neighborhoods like Ferguson, and pretty much every other part of our country. Like Ferguson, Milwaukee has had its share of young black men whose lives have been extinguished simply because of the color of their skin. Milwaukee may not be seeing the protests and unrest that are rocking Ferguson, but with the horrible statistics illustrated in the infographic above, and a growing number of unresolved deaths of unarmed youth in the city, the tinder is certainly there.

there is no safe place for black people in america and that was by design. this entire thing needs to be burned to the ground.

Just a quick reminder that:

  • Not all trans people want surgery
  • Not all trans people want to take hormones
  • Not all trans men like women
  • Not all trans women like men
  • Not all trans people are romantically/sexually interested in others
  • Some trans folk like to cross-dress opposite of the gender they identify with
  • All kinds of people have their own definition of what is and isn't masculine and feminine and even then they don't always stick within those lines
  • Every trans person has their own definition of transgender/transexual that reflects who they are and their experiences
  • You do not get to define what being trans is for someone else

Black trans women are also victims of this same violence targeting black men and black cis women. This genocide is all inclusive. And transmisogynistic violence is heavily racialized. 

Also all Queer Black People.

TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD

I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops

what’s the difference between white supremacists and the cops

Here’s the shotguns used tonight. Lots of restraint shown:

Summary of the night (August 18th, 2014):There were many arrests throughout the night. Water bottles and other objects were thrown at police, and after gunshots rang out near the QuikTrip, police began firing smoke and gas indiscriminately. There have been reports of white anarchist agitators from out of town, provoking police.
Many protesters ran, terrified, coughing. Journalists were caught in the gas: one canister rolled right under a photographer, who collapsed from it. Fires and bricks were used by residents to try and keep back police.
Police began clearing out the street, ordering anyone who wasn’t credentialed media to leave or be faced with arrest. When one reporter (who is livestreaming the events and has a camera on him) explained he lost his credentials while being fired at and showed his PRESS patch instead, officer told him “this doesn’t mean shit” while ripping the journalist’s PRESS patch off of his vest and throwing it to the ground.
Police formed two lines and began moving forward. A handful of protesters got caught between the lines, trapped but repeatedly told to get out. Among them, WaPo reporter Wesley Lowery reports that the entire neighbourhood has barriers and many people are unable to get home.
SWAT teams have begun doing tactical sweeps and media were ordered away.
Amnesty International was also on the ground tonight and were kicked out by police. Currently, AI is highly critical of the US.
There are still a few people trapped, it appears, including a few reporters, who are tweeting that they’re being mercilessly gassed:

And here’s an image of what it looks like when they fire gas:

Currently waiting for a presser from Captain Johnson, who was seen tonight attempting to keep peace with no helmet/mask/gear.
