No. 168 “The Unarmed” 

Rest In Peace…

to Michael Brown, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride, Oscar Grant, Sean Bell And the countless other lives that have been taken away from this world due to prejudice.

And an honor to the many people in Ferguson standing up, fighting, hoping that some kind of justice can be had in the midst of chaos.

At last, a new Revolutionary Times comic has arrived. 

And not a moment too soon. A little levity in these serious times is what we needed. Thank you, gentlemen.

SD Police Say Tazing 8-Year-Old Native Girl Was Justified, Family Sues

note-a-bear:

gravediggs:

The Chief of Police justifies the use of a tazer on an 8 year old girl by saying they could have used their guns or batons, essentially. What restraint.

So very relevant to Ferguson, because I imagine the broader pattern of how police respond to people of color affected the outcome of this situation much like it did with Mike Brown.  Today, the police “just” used a tazer and caused some traumatization.  But … are there situations of police shooting and killing Native Americans in the U.S. (or First Nations people in Canada) that don’t hit the media because Native Americans are even more invisible than black people in the U.S.?

This…this commentary does not honor this little girl. And it does NOT address the nature of Native oppression in the US. Which is different from antiblack oppression.

Comparing an instance of violence against a nonblack person to an instance of violence against a Black person is…unhelpful. And it is a feature of antiblack oppression. Using Black bodies as yardsticks to judge all other forms of oppression is hurtful and harmful.

Native people are not more invisible than Black people because that comparison doesn’t even mean anything.

Hypervisibility is actually a key aspect of Black suffering. We are commodities. Our death is spectacle. It is never respected.

Anti-native oppression operates under different rules.

It would probably be more respectful to EVERYONE if people focused on the specific contexts of individual victims of state violence instead of comparing them to make sweeping ‘more/less’ statements about racialized groups.

^^^^^^

Okay. I’m about to hurt some feelings but I clearly give no fucks. 1) Whoever made this clearly is not black. I’ll go into that rhetoric later. 2) Do not co-opt the death of a Black child you couldn’t care less about to deter the situation of racial profiling and police brutality. Do not use the deaths of Blacks to make a point that racism and police profiling doesn’t exist. What the hell entire logic is that? I’ll wait. It’s kind of like if someone is killed for being homosexual and you yelled “WELL A GAY MAN KILLED ANOTHER GAY MAN ONE TIME SO HOMOPHOBIA DOESNT EXIST”. See how problematic that is?
4) Blacks do care about Black on Black crime. Whoever made this pic can you even list organizations in the hood or clubs to help Black boys and girls to stay out of trouble? I’ll wait again. Do you read magazines and news dedicated to community outreach?
5) Racial profiling does exist. While that’s not the point of why I’m posting this picture I will go ahead and throw that out there. Hell you can even take a class on it if you can’t fucking comprehend systematic profiling and prejudices in America. This country was built off it. Wake the fuck up.
6) Now back to the picture. Don’t co-opt our death so you can continue to be racist. Because that child does NOT deserve to have her death used as a PROP for someone to DETER the topic of police brutality and racism. Yall tried that shit with Trayvon and every other profiled/unarmed death. If someone is killed based off a prejudice, religion, or identity, do not fucking co-opt it. That is so disrespectful. These two cases do not even correlate whatsofuckingever. People are protesting police brutality and someone is that ASS-HURT that they have to be like “oh well this black killed this black”. Do you even care this child died or are you trying to shush us? GET THE FUCK OUT WITH THIS RHETORIC. Basically this pic is saying “I’m mad people are protesting racial profiling so I’m going to throw out black on black crime to shut yall up”. You will not. (at Yall have me FUCKED up)

And he’s been going all day. The fact that he can continue for hours is more than enough reason that this needs to stop.

Sad.

David Banner lost that weight, hit the gym, read some books, and turned into an activist on yall faux ass rappers. I love me some of his FINE ASS.
