"Sometimes I have no idea what is going on in romantic comedies, because whatever they’re selling seems like the declawed paper cutout version of the emotions that have made me consider death one or three hundred times."

why did Keke show up in ferguson like she going to the club tho
that’s how you know who’s out here doing it for kudos and a fucking pat on the back.
Heels and a skirt? No.
Keke finna film a music video
A publicity stunt if I’ve ever seen one
Because you ain’t showing up to march and put in work in some heels
I am so sick to my stomach. really? really? heels and a skirt?
I have never hoped someone stepped on a rock and stubbed their toe this much in life.
every single other person has on sensible shoes though… she clearly just came to be seen
She was speaking at a memorial service for Mike Brown right before this photo, that’s why she’s dressed like that.

The App Place :: ACLU of New Jersey
Citizens can hold police accountable in the palms of their hands with “Police Tape,” a smartphone application from the ACLU of New Jersey that allows people to securely and discreetly record and store interactions with police, as well as provide legal information about citizens’ rights when interacting with the police. Thanks to the generosity of app developer OpenWatch, the ACLU-NJ is providing Police Tape to the public free of charge.

Just left a peaceful protest and I swear its an amazing feeling to be apart of something so powerful and positive. Standing with a group as one, chant after chant! There is no doubt in my mind that justice will be served. Shout out to tefpoe1 he’s been standing strong since day 1.
