I keep seeing white liberals on social media posting that they can’t believe what is happening in Ferguson, or that they can’t believe this is happening in America. Now I normally wouldn’t care enough about any of that to make any commentary, but they are sending me messages, outraged…
You should definitely do this, but please be safe and knowledgeable about it! Here are some resources for how to safely film/photograph police brutality, as well as information on YOUR rights as you do so:
Please be aware that different states have different laws on the matter. Check into them so you can know you specific laws, and what to expect if you film the police. Also check with your state’s chapter of the ACLU; many of them have tips on this matter, and some have pocket foldouts of your rights that you can use to convince the police that no, you aren’t doing anything wrong.
I’m starting a new blog via wordpress. Tumblr has become too much of a hot mess for me as far as serious posts and too many selfies of myself haha.
I decided I should get serious about blogging because I’ve always loved writing. It’s my way of venting. This time, it’s going to be public though…not like this one isn’t public, but I mean, I’m actually going to keep my link out there for the world to see.
I’ll probably still use this one for irrelevant venting? I have no idea. Bye guys.
