I’m seeing a lot of Australians say stuff like, “thank god I’m in Australia!” when they talk about the shooting of Michael Brown… As if police brutality and complete misconduct is not rampant here?
Australia is not a peaceful country where police abide by the law. Around 26% of the nation’s total prison/jail populations are Indigenous (some recent reports are saying that figure has risen to 30% in 2014). The same figure for the Northern Territory is 86%, and 40% for Western Australia. Us Blackfellas are 14.8 times more likely to be arrested than non-Indigenous persons. Ever heard of the Redfern riots? Ever heard of Black Deaths In Custody? They will arrest us and lock us up for trivial offences like swearing, but no way would the same treatment be given to a white person who swears at the police. It’s selective and absolutely racially motivated. Indigenous youth are a major target for the police, also.
What the community of Ferguson needs right now is solidarity, support and justice. You are not helping by talking about how bad the U.S. treats Black folks but seemingly praising Australia. The police harass, assault and kill us for being Black. Don’t turn a blind eye to that.
I do not want to see anymore posts that praise Australia for its apparent lack of police brutality. Please.
anti-sjw creating fake-sjw so that the anti-sjw have more to be mock when it’s just a giant circlejerk between the same people
tumblr in action is the BEST example of that shit
just went on it and one of the first things i see is a person getting mad that they can’t use aave
"Prime example of the over reaction on the part of radical SJWs and why I personally think gaming needs to be reclaimed by people with the same mindset as Jon."
you don’t need to reclaim anything 90% of male gamers think exactly the way jon does

The campaign is still up and people are still able to donate. They just “deleted” the comments
So basically all they’re doing is hiding the obvious racism involved, making it even harder for people to show how the existence of the fund is inherently bigoted in nature.
Amazing. Talk about pretending to work for one group while stabbing them in the back.
So fyi to everyone, find another crowd funding website to use!
Confirmed. K, deleting my account now, because that response is weak and irresponsible. This is actually worse than doing nothing.
