Egypt, China, Russia and Iran’s governments have now all criticized the USA over the human rights being broken in Ferguson.
that should fucking tell you something
Well not really, except that countries will jump on the fact that they’re not the only one abusing human rights. Ferguson is an abomination, but that doesn’t make Iran, Russia, Egypt, or anyone else less guilty of their own abuses.
“I don’t care if Mike Brown was going to college soon. This should not matter. We should not have to prove Mike Brown was worthy of living. We should not have to account for the ways in which he is suitably respectable. We should not have to prove that his body did not deserve to be riddled with bullets. His community should not have to silence their anger so they won’t be accused of rioting, so they won’t become targets too.”—"silence is not an option," roxane gay (via brookehatfield)
