|—||An overwhelmingly accurate statement (via insanity-and-vanity)|
The above is Travis Morales. If you don’t know who he is, he’s one of these privileged jokers who goes around talking about “revolution”. He and many other jokers like him traveled to Ferguson and are using this opportunity to incite further mayhem. He went to Ferguson for the “revolution” and “rebellion”. It’s not their communities being targeted so they can leave when it gets too hot. They can ignite a match and walk away. They will promote violence and leave.
Like I mentioned here, avoid these people Black folks. Avoid them at all costs. They aren’t your friends. They aren’t your allies. These people have their own agendas and fighting anti-Blackness isn’t it. They’re dangerous.
Signal boost for all of thefolks on the frontlines
It is not unusual to be bad at things you just started and don’t understand.
I see a lot of people ready to quit after one or two tries at something, and then when they see that I’m good at those things, they think I must have been born with my talent.
I wasn’t. I struggled for years and I did things that weren’t always helpful and I didn’t know enough to understand why they weren’t working. But I kept trying and I kept learning and eventually I became “good” at it.
(Sometimes becoming better at something means you have to learn and admit that you were wrong about the way you were doing it before.)
Struggle isn’t a sign that a task cannot be accomplished. It doesn’t mean you weren’t meant for something just because it’s hard. It’s okay to think something is difficult and keep trying anyway. Don’t be afraid to make an effort.
And if you find that after you’ve done the work, you still aren’t good at something…that’s okay too. You don’t have to be good at everything — nobody else is. Just remember not to put down anyone else who is trying just because it turned out not to be for you.
So next time you’re in a situation where you are recording an officer and fear for the safety of your video evidence, try using the Bambuser app.
It uploads your video online to your Bambuser account while you record it. You can also stream the video live. This way your videos are saved online, safe from the hands of the uniformed pigs.
