We have to consciously study how to be tender with each other until it becomes a habit because what was native has been stolen from us. - Audre Lorde #houseofbaldwin #familia #twisting | photo: Marfuh

Another side effect of what’s going on in #Ferguson is the closing of schools. Here’s a handy infographic from the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for the Study of Race and Equity in Education.
A crowdsourcing page has been set up to feed the students of Ferguson who would normally receive free or reduced lunch! All donations go to the St. Louis Foodbank. -JS
It really warms my heart to see the library looking out for its community in the light of everything happening in Ferguson.

Most people give the homeless change or leftovers, Mark Bustos is cutting their hair
For the past few months, New York City hairstylist Mark Bustos — who normally spends his days working at an upscale salon — has been volunteering on his days off to offer haircuts to homeless people he sees on the street. With a simple phrase, “I want to do something nice for you today,” he has been helping people get a fresh, uplifting makeover.
For people who have been trapped in a cycle of poverty, unemployment and homelessness, the makeover can also serve a useful function: looking presentable for a job.
His line ups are so clean
The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS.
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored
I’m confused if she was killed how can she be interviewed.
They (the police) were saying she was killed.
She is very much alive
Pac was ahead of his time and will forever be relevant.
