While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

This commercial is amazing.

I work at an Under Armour store and we got to see this commercial way before they showed it on TV and everyone was speechless except one dude. He was all like “What the hell? Why the fuck would they make a ballet commercial? It’s not a sport.” My boss was quick to jump down his throat and said “Alright then get your ass on the floor and work on you tippy toes for the rest of your shift. If I fucking see you off them you will be the first of the temps to get cut!” He was on his tippy toes for the last hour and a half of his shift lol 

[x] For the full commercial

This is one of the best daily show interviews I’ve seen in a long while. I don’t believe many people know this about MLK Jr. And so much of what he had to say and was fighting for beyond ending racism still applies today, because we haven’t fixed the problem. Killing him silenced him and we still aren’t listening to what he wanted.

Seriously watch this, then go read the book.

Urban Outfitters Features “Vintage” Red-Stained Kent State Sweatshirt
Urban Outfitters: Come For The Bloody Kent State Gear, Stay For Master Class In Terrible Apologies
At first glance, one could argue that this came out of a massively misguided attempt to capitalize the youth culture zeitgeist of the moment (which every savvy youth fashion line must do in order to stay ahead of trends)—-kent state is very relevant now as today’s youth grow up under the heel of a militarized police force. OBVIOUSLY UO completely failed to draw that parallel in a way that isn’t just utterly fucking horrifying. But I can’t ignore the bigger picture here. The victims of the Kent State Massacre were liberal hippies and the core consumer base of UO are liberal hipsters—-even if one can make an argument that hipsters aren’t exact parallels of hippies, UO has spent a lot of time and effort to sell the boho racist hippie aesthetic to hipsters (ponchos, war bonnets, crystals and “vintage” everything). Now consider that the founder of UO poured $13,000 dollars into Rick Santorum’s election campaign, and has demonstrated his personal views and business practices align strongly with the GOP—-the racist, misogynist, classist party that to my mind has everything to gain from an event where police mow down liberal youth with high powered military grade assault rifles. So when UO tries to sell me a bloodied Kent State sweatshirt, all I hear is “pay us to clothe you in the violent oppression we will use your money to engineer.” Tl;dr: PAY US TO KILL YOU
