CLAYTON •The grand jury that is hearing evidence in the Michael Brown shooting death has one black man and two black women on the panel, and six white men and three white women.
ThePost-Dispatch reported Wednesdaythat the grand jury had three black people, but the gender information is new. The gender information was supplied by Paul Fox, director of judicial administration for St. Louis County Circuit Court.
Fox said Judge Carolyn Whittington will hear a motion Monday morning about what else to release about the makeup of the grand jury, including age and hometown or zip code.

Anonymous asked:

how can you be friends with white people if you hate them so much?

I'm very important. Answer:

Because like every other oppressed person we understand the basic fact we hate white people as a system of oppression. As in the eurocentric beauty standards, the white washing of our history and the media, the racial stereotypes and discrimination. This does not mean we hate them on an individual level. Meaning that if i see a white person walking down the street i’m not going to go up and call them a cracker for no reason. It is compteley possible obviously to make friends who still benefit from that system of oppression. The same thing how queer people can be friends with straight people. It’s not about an invdiviual but a system.

this actually leads pretty well into another point as when someone says “i hate white people” they do not mean it on an individual level. It’s the system of oppression that whites benefit from and perpetuate that they hate. Granted they may hate some white people as individuals due to past experiences however if you are getting upset and taking it personally because a black person said “i hate white people” then you are completely missing the issue.
