If you have it, please support the Black Lives Matter Ride from Detroit to Ferguson! Riders are coming from Detroit and elsewhere in Michigan (MSU represented!) to support protestors in St. Louis/Ferguson.

Every little bit helps. A $1 helps. ‪#‎msu‬ ‪#‎annarbor‬ ‪#‎lansing‬ ‪#‎grandrapids‬ ‪#‎eastlansing‬ ‪#‎detroit‬

If you’d like to go—head to the FB page and sign up. Or let me know and I can help guide you to who you need to talk to.

And if you’re able to help in other ways, LET ME KNOW or post in the FB page!!!! I can pass that info on to the organizers. We want all skills and resources you can offer. We can find a way for you to help!!!

My email is a riot. Best way to get me directly is via Twitter @jmjafrx or FB facebook.com/jmjohnsophd and message me.

The Detroit Chapter is so close to its goal! Please consider donating (IF AND ONLY IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT). As members of the Detroit chapter, Vio and JMJ will be joining. We are only a few hundred dollars away under 24 hours.

If you are unable to support financially, please continue to hold the Ferguson community in your thoughts, prayers, chants, healing circles, etc.

Some have reported trouble with a hyperlink, so I’m including the direct url: http://www.gofundme.com/dgc6uc

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

I’ve been getting compliments on my shoes all day. Bought these in Spain in 06, and decided to dust them off today.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

This song has popped in my head several times over the last couple of weeks.

My heart goes out to this Man… My Lord #mikebrown #ferguson

Jesus.  

This hurts.

praying! wow.

The way my heart just wrenched in my chest

My prayers have been especially with Mr. Brown during all of this.

I'm planning classes and Hero's playing a video game...

  • Me (at the top of my lungs): "I don't feel like cookin' you no breakfast this morning!!"
  • Hero (not missing a beat): "Girl, you don't have to cook me breakfast cuz your girlfriend comes after you lea-ea-eave."

If I focus, I can finish the section that was giving me a headache on Friday and go to bed already. I’ll be well set up to finish this section, complete the next and play with data by the end of the week/beginning of next.

RIP Richard Attenborough - (August 29, 1923 - August 24, 2014)

(And that would be the actor director, not the nature documentarian …)

Dang, man.
