I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.

When white protesters ACTUALLY RIOT in protest of Joe Paterno’s firing for KNOWING ABOUT ONE OF HIS ASSISTANT COACHES HAVING SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH AN ADOLECENT BOY … Nothing happens… BUT when black people PEACEFULLY PROTEST FOR POLICE UNLAWFULLY SLAYING A AFICAN AMERICAN MALE, LEAVING HIS BODY UNCOVERED FOR HOURS AND DUMPING HIS BODY IN A TRUNK LIKE AN OLD MAFIA MOVIE … There is national guard, flash bangs, curfews, media blackouts, tear gas, and all kinds of excessive force INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO MACING TODDLERS! #ferguson #handsupdontshoot #handsup #prayingforferguson #lordhelpthisnation #onlygodcanhepthissituation #prayedup

Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.
