I keep seeing these videos with people in bathing suits and t-shirts, tank tops. For me personally, when I bring awarerness to a charity, I prefer a more formal setting, so excuse me…

"Cinderella never asked for a prince. She asked for a night off and a dress."

Like not once did she say “I want a prince to come and rescue me from my situation.”

She just wanted to look cute and turn the fuck up at the party.

The start of the school year in Ferguson was pushed back another week, to Aug. 25th. In the meantime, children are able to spend the day at the library or local churches.

I just cut myself shaving during a 3 minute shower and ran out the house in heels because I couldn’t find any normal shoes. All to see a giant duck. This better be good.

Tense tally in Ferguson includes fires, shootings and 31 arrests (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)

Two men were shot during the chaos of demonstrations late Monday and early today near West Florissant and Canfield, police confirmed. Officers weren’t involved in the shootings. There was no immediate information on the identities or conditions of the victims. Police also confirmed that 31 people were arrested, including some who had come from as far as New York and California.

As outside groups descend on Ferguson, locals focus on Michael Brown (Al Jazeera)

It was remarkable the number of outsiders who flocked to Ferguson in the wake of this tragedy, like so many personal-injury lawyers to an ambulance. Some of the most prominent figures in the protests have been politicians from St. Louis, especially Antonio French, a city alderman who has done a better job covering the situation than most journalists.

Cop Being Sued Over Beating Is Now a Ferguson City Councilwoman (Mother Jones)

In 2009, police in Ferguson, Missouri arrested Henry M. Davis on suspicion of driving under the influence and took him to jail. What followed is described in court documents as “physical contact between the officers and Mr. Davis.” One officer, Kim Tihen, allegedly “struck [Davis] in his head with a closed fist and hit [him] in the head with handcuffs.” Davis suffered a concussion and severe facial lacerations, while an officer was left with a broken nose. Afterwards, prosecutors charged Davis with four counts of destruction of property—because his blood had dirtied the officers’ uniforms.

Michael Brown’s dad: ‘We need to keep the focus on Michael Brown’ (MSNBC)

Michael Brown’s parents continued to call for an end to violence in Ferguson on Tuesday, following yet another night when protesters clashed with authorities over the unarmed teenager’s death. Lasting unrest in the St. Louis suburb is a “distraction” that “is really out of control,” Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, said Tuesday during an interview on the “TODAY” show. “We need to keep the focus on Michael Brown Jr. That’s who we need to keep the focus on,” Brown’s father, Michael Brown Sr., added.

‘If They Refuse to Hear Us, We Will Make Them Feel Us’ (Time)

While we fight injustice, we will also hold ourselves to an appropriate level of intelligent advocacy. If they refuse to hear us, we will make them feel us. Some will mistake that last statement as being negatively provocative. But feeling us means feeling our pain; imagining our plight as parents of slain children. We will no longer be ignored. We will bond, continue our fights for justice, and make them remember our children in an appropriate light. I would hate to think that our lawmakers and leaders would need to lose a child before protecting the rest of them and making the necessary changes now.

‘No Rights Which the White Man Was Bound to Respect’ (The Nation)

Over the past decade, white police officers have repeatedly slaughtered unarmed black men—Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Missouri, was one of many. On MSNBC, Nation columnist Melissa Harris-Perry named nine black men who were gunned down while defenseless in the last ten years, before going on to explain that between 2006 and 2012, white police officers killed a black person at least two times a week. She then noted that in 1857 Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Taney declared in a court opinion that African-Americans had “no rights which the white man was bound to respect”—an idea that many white police officers in America clearly still hold true.

The Militarization of Racism and Neoliberal Violence (TruthOut)

The recent killing and then demonization of an unarmed 18-year-old African-American youth, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri by a white police officer has made visible how a kind of military metaphysics now dominates American life. The police have been turned into soldiers who view the neighborhoods in which they operate as war zones. Outfitted with full riot gear, submachine guns, armored vehicles, and other lethal weapons imported from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, their mission is to assume battle-ready behavior. Is it any wonder that violence rather than painstaking, neighborhood police work and community outreach and engagement becomes the norm for dealing with alleged “criminals,” especially at a time when more and more behaviors are being criminalized?

Cities Rocked by Past Unrest Offer Lessons in What, and What Not, to Do (New York Times)

As the unrest in Ferguson stretched into its ninth day after the black man, Michael Brown, was shot by a white officer, Darren Wilson, political and civic leaders in other cities that endured similar violence said their experiences may offer lessons in how to manage such protests — or, in some cases, how not to.

Expect Many, Many Lawsuits From Ferguson (BuzzFeed)

The first matter will be the potential criminal and civil actions related to Brown’s death. But legal experts also predict possible litigation stemming from the actions taken by police in Ferguson, lawsuits brought by store owners against the police related to looting, and even the imposition of a curfew.

President Obama chooses his words carefully on Michael Brown (Los Angeles Times)

As they watched police in military gear spread tear gas in a St. Louis suburb in recent days, White House aides knew President Obama would be expected to weigh in on race. But rather than bold words, Obama’s reaction in this case has been shaped by an acute awareness of self-imposed limits.
