What they won’t show you on CNN tonight: Ferguson residents line a parade of roses down W Florissant, leading to where Mike Brown was taken from this world. #staywoke #powerful #insolidarity 

Beautiful & powerful testimony.

One of my friends is a police officer in Fremont, and thus he knows all the awesome hole-in-the-wall spots to grab a bite in his precinct. Mirchi is one of those, and I’ve joined him twice for lunch there now. It’s located at the end of a small strip of shops, so you may pass it by without kno…

Interesting. Is it really that good? I’m skeptical of fancy coffee lately.

Norwegian artist Markus Moestue built and rode a three-wheeled dinosaur bicycle across the Bible belt of Norway as a form of protest against religion.  He explained, "It is a protest against the dogmatic religious education of children, and the idea originated from the theme-parks of creationists that teach children that humans and dinosaurs used to live together."

All respect to his point, but this just makes me wish people and dinosaurs *did* live together.

If you believe some nonsense like “criminals are more likely to be nonwhite,” this totally blows that out of the water.  Even though the cops are only 25% as likely to search a white person, they’re 200% more likely to find contraband on the search-ee.
Think about that.  It means that police officers are more effective at detecting who is a white criminal than who is a PoC criminal.
That means that not only are more PoC being searched, the ones who ARE being searched are more likely to be ones who did nothing wrong.
So unless PoC have some magical ability to add up to more than 100%, they’re either just as likely as white people to be carrying contraband, or even less likely.  What’s worse, the police clearly have observational techniques for improving their ability to catch white criminals that they simply don’t use when a PoC is involved.
So not only are they targeting PoC, but either PoC are committing fewer crimes than white people are, or the cops are just intentionally ignoring criminal PoC in favor of harassing innocent PoC.  Since I feel like crime rate is probably more dependent on economics than race, I’m gonna say that the cops are ignoring suspicious PoC in order to harass more innocent PoC.
That’s racist.  Totally, unabashedly racist—and that racism is making ALL of us less safe.
