I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged. By : I am not Mike Brown. (via asgardian-feminist)

what’s really got me fucked up is like, mcdonalds even said that the protesters didn’t break in… that they were apparently given the milk??? like??? when a multimillion dollar company built off the suffering of poor people (and also whole bunches of animals but let’s not even go there) is like “shit seems bad have this for free letting you suffer in these conditions would be inhumane” WE HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM
