Here is a new post about the murder of Michael Brown, the unarmed young man gunned down in Ferguson, Missouri.
[TW] After a lynching, the body left on tree for a while. 3 reasons. To make images of it. To entertain Whites. Psych warfare on Black ppl
And this reason, this context, this history, and this power, *directly* connects to Michael Brown’s execution and his body left in street.
DIRECTLY. It is not a metaphor. It is not a trope. Not use of Black death for non-BP anti-Blackness. His execution = legacy of lynching.

Of course. It fits the oppressor’s narrative. RT @AngryBlackLady: now the media is going to focus on looting rather than the shooting.

Police in Ferguson running around in riot gear like they’re not the ones who are a threat. Please.
