meanwhile the police fill the block with tear gas. who’s protecting and serving here
It’s important that people see this
I dont even know who this is, but the media pulls shit like this often and it should be publicized.
Since before Emancipation, when slaves mounted several organized armed rebellions and countless spontaneous and individual acts of violent resistance to overseers, masters, and patrollers, black men and women consistently demonstrated a willingness to advance their interests at the point of a gun. In the year following the Civil War, black men shot white rioters who attacked blacks in New Orleans and Memphis. Even the original civil rights leadership publicly believed that, as Frederick Douglass put it in 1867, “a man’s rights rest in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.”
During Reconstruction, all-black units of the Union Leagues organized themselves as militias and warred against such white terrorist organizations as the Men of Justice, the Knights of the White Camellia, the Knights of the Rising Sun, and the Ku Klux Klan, whose primary mission was to disarm ex-slaves and thus was one of the first gun-control organizations in the United States.
With the rise of Jim Crow segregation at the end of the 19th century, civil rights leaders continued to advocate meeting fire with fire. “A Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home,” the famed anti-lynching crusader Ida B. Wells-Barnett wrote in 1892, when on average more than one black person was lynched every three days in the South, “and it should be used for that protection which the law refuses to give.”
In 1899, after a black man named Henry Denegale was accused of raping a white woman in Darien, Georgia, armed black men surrounded the jail where he was held to prevent lynch mobs from taking him. Instead of being hanged from a tree or burned at the stake, Denegale was tried and acquitted. Though blacks tended to consider Georgia the most lethal of all the Southern states, the coastal area, where Darien was located, “had the fewest lynchings of any place in the state.”
I am posting this to spread awareness to folks down here on the ground. A white anarchist punched me in the face as I was running from gun shots. Before he hit me he told me to ” sit the fuck down” . The KKK is out here. There are white man throwing bombs and giving them to youth . Spread the word because its about to be night fall here in #ferguson. Please stand in solidarity with us even if just from your homes and computer screens. We are doing this for us.
I can confirm this. My friend, Loren D., is out in Ferguson right now with our other friends. She said that there were white anarchists starting problems at the rally in Ferguson and they got removed. I have also seen tweets from people in Ferguson who mentioned seeing white anarchists trying to stir up violence.
Fuck white supremacists… for real.
