@cronjager no less embarrassing than the cartoonist who never stopped to consider "did I accidentally draw the coolest woman to ever exist?"

Don't let anyone in the world forget that the filth are trying to put an end to #GunsDownWaterGunsUp. Ask why the government is so concerned with stopping a harmless event aimed at building community and reducing gun violence
Conservatives talk about how Black-on-Black violence is a problem that the community should stop itself, but once they do the state steps in and puts an end to it. Why?
Could it be that gang violence is a necessary facet of their broader strategy of oppression? That the Black community needs to continue to fighting itself to keep it from fighting its oppressors?
Obviously I'm not qualified to talk in depth about racial injustice, and I'm going to try and boost any PoC and Black voices I see talking about this from now on instead of saying any more, but I do know that this is something we need to be talking about. This is a clear display of the state's real goals
PSA: Citing sources
So, this is worth talking about as we slide further into a rather gross political time.
It is critically important to cite reliable sources when posting about the injustices going on.
This can mean a link to a news article, it can mean saying "I was there and here is what I saw," or whatever. The important thing is that anyone reading it should be able to check the underlying facts, as much as possible.
Also, be skeptical of news analysis, which is basically someone's personal interpretation of the facts.
By making this a habit, and by not spreading outrage-provoking news without sources, we inoculate our social circles against "fake news," and we help stop instigators from spreading misinformation to divert us from the real threats.
Propaganda isn't a bunch of brochures being dropped from airplanes, it's a social media meme.
Empirical analysis of behavioral advertising finds that surveillance makes ads only 4% more profitable for media companies
