it’s inevitable that Ferguson would come up like right now two places in the world are being plagued with social injustice and police brutality and it makes sense to draw parallels between Ferguson and Hong Kong like personally I haven’t seen any derailing or undermining posts all I’ve seen were posts that support both movements and side-by-side photos idk :/
the situations are very different (one is caused by the unlawful execution of an unarmed black man by police caused by systematic racism, and the other caused by wanting independence) its making the #ferguson thing just seem very homogeneous like comparing the 2 situations just because the police brutality whilst ignoring the underlying causes of ferguson is undermining its importance and the whole non-black poc “this happens to us too” false equivalence when talking about about ferguson
Random Fact: According to the Justice Department and the Pentagon 26,000 rapes took place within the American Military in 2013 alone. To place this mind boggling, human rights violating occurrence into perspective. That is on average 70 sexual assaults PER DAY, and 3 sexual assaults PER HOUR. THIS IS THE FUCKING AMERICAN MILITARY WE ARE TALKING ABOUT!
