After Michael Brown’s shooting in Ferguson, the opinion departments of Guardian US and the St Louis Post-Dispatch partnered to gather readers’ stories from around the world of being racially profiled by police. Our hope is that this sampling will help spur empathy – and then action, everywhere.

& somehow cops managed without a tank & tear gas. #ferguson #mikebrown #policebrutality #racism

Bloop.

What the FUCK

White people riot all the damn time. UNC wins? Riot. UNC loses? Riot. Penn State fires a guy for covering for a pedophile for years? RIOT RIOT RIOT!But too many black people gather, even peacefully, and here comes the tear gas and rubber(coated) bullets.

crazyy

listen.

Stay woke

The thing is:White people riot and destroy property when they lose games, or, strangely, when they win games, at sporting events.They riot and destroy property when child rapists and people who are complicit in covering up child rape are penalized and punished.But if black people riot and destroy property in response to systemic injustice and State-sanctioned violence against black people, then the country, the media, and American citizens regard us as unthinking savages.Surely, the unmitigated fuckery present in this paradigm is self-evident….

At the University of Tennessee, white people burned mattresses in the streets when Lane Kiffin left! :P

The UConn campus erupts into full-out riot, complete with car flipping and property destruction, whenever they win a national championship, yet people barely blink an eye.

"Home is a place we all must find, child. It’s not just a place where you eat or sleep. Home is knowing. Knowing your mind, knowing your heart, knowing your courage. If we know ourselves, we’re always home, anywhere."
