Thinkin' About String

i need ferguson to go down in history books. i need school children in the year 2074 to learn about michael brown being shot on august 9th, 2014 by officer darren wilson. i need this to spark a movement. this can not lose the focus of society a mere month after it happened.

… The support generated in favor of William Masters for shooting two Mexican American teenagers engaged in spray painting is striking when compared to the condemnation of the Singapore government in response to its decision to cane Michael Fay, a non-Latino White teenager who was caught spray painting cars in Singapore less than a year earlier. In 1994, Fay pleaded guilty to two counts of mischief, admitting that he and other spray painted eighteen cars, threw eggs at other cars, and switched license plates on other cars.

A Singapore judge sentenced Fay to four months in prisons, a $2,230 fine, and six lashes with a rattan cane. The outrage in America was immediate. Describing her son as “a typical teenager,” Fay’s mother appealed to U.S. government officials to intervene and insist on clemency for her son, explaining, “Caning is not something the American public would want an American to go through. It’s barbaric.” U.S. Embassy officials and members of the American chamber of Commerce responded by condemning the severity of the sentence. Even President Bill Clinton asked the Singapore government to reconsider the sentence.

When a White American shoots two Mexican Americans for spray painting columns supporting a freeway, killing one of the youths, he is called a crime-fighting hero. When a foreign government canes a White American youth for spray painting and egging cars, that punishment is denounced as inhumane and cruel.

A guy I went to college with works for this company that makes artisanal beard shampoo in Detroit. He and the other people who work there are super-white men with long, gross beards. Although the company's logo and all of it's marketing says, MADE IN DETROIT and they are always REPPING DETROIT, not a single Black person seems to work for them (and it's obvious as fuck that they're marketing to white hipsters). Racist, or just incredibly wack?

It’s great how white people destroyed Detroit by being too racist to live near black people, and now other white people are making its “revitalization” somehow all about them. Plus fuck all this beard culture bullshit.

we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.
