"Being a woman is kind of like being a cyclist in a city where all the cars represent men. You’re supposed to be able to share the road equally with cars, but that’s not how it works. The roads are built for cars and you spend a great deal of physical and mental energy being defensive and trying not to get hurt. Some of the cars WANT you to get hurt. They think you don’t have any place on the road at all. And if you do get hurt by a car, everyone makes excuses that it’s your fault."
"I’ll watch the night turn light blue,
But it’s not the same without you.
Because it takes two to whisper quietly.
The silence isn’t so bad,
Till I look at my hands and feel sad.
Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly.”
That’s the number of arrest warrants issued in Ferguson last year for nonviolent crimes. Compare that to the population of 21,135 people.
Ferguson is making bank off its own citizens
"White citizens were stopped less than 13% of the time despite making up 29% of the population"
At some point I’ll stop talking about Ferguson. Today is not that day.
