Apparently, in an attempt to paint Michael Brown as anything less than innocent, people have been spreading an image of an armed 17-year-old Joda Cain around the web and claiming that it’s Michael Brown.

Joda Cain is accused of murder in my home state of Oregon, and has literally jack shit to do with the Michael Brown murder in Ferguson, Missouri. THESE ARE NOT THE SAME PEOPLE. Anyone using the above image as “proof” that Michael Brown “deserved” to be shot should be called out for defamation, and promptly thrown down a spiral staircase. 

The bottom photo is the real Michael Brown. He was called a “gentle giant” by friends and family. He was unarmed and innocent, and he was murdered by a police officer after being shot more than seven times at close range. Witnesses, including a friend who was with him at the time of the shooting, all agree that he was doing nothing deserving of such violent actions from the officer who gunned him down. 

1. Even if the first picture was Michael Brown (d.e.p.) let’s talk about why Black Men can’t walk around holding guns in the same way, for example, as White 2nd amendment fanatics who find it necessary to carry guns into a Target and Chipotle.

2. EVEN IF Michael Brown (d.e.p.) was a criminal, it does not give the right for police to play Judge, Jury and Executioner, which they have no problem doing anyway, especially with Black Men.

What strikes me most interesting about these two pictures is the juxtaposition of different expressions of gender roles. 

Michael Brown’s (d.e.p.) picture being more “effiminate” (not by my standards) and Joda Cain’s presenting a masculine, defensive and power-driven stance. 

Which leads to another question: What do these two pictures say about Amerikkka’s fear of  Black Men and Masculinity?

Hate doesn’t breed hate. Hate inspires anger in victims of hatred and that anger is called hatred to delegitimize it and villainize people. If you wanna help people who are victims then first you gotta stop acting like they’re just as bad their oppressors and abusers.

Libertarianism is stupid

Hmm, pro-life and anti-feminist yet anti-genital mutilation and pro-equality.
Did someone brain their damage?

Flower Power

by Sophie Gamand

O objetivo da série ‘Flower Power’ é desmistificar a imagem perigosa e agressiva criada em torno dos cães da raça Pit Bull:

"I realized pit bulls were always portrayed in very urban, gritty photographs. The imagery associated with these dogs is often harsh, very contrasted, conveying the idea of them being tough. In my opinion, this feeds the myth that these dogs are dormant psychopaths. So I decided to take the other route and portray them like hippies, soft fairy-tale-inspired characters, feminine and dreamy. The idea of Flower Power blossomed."
