I woke up early in order to prepare a couple of (unexpected and important) meetings I have this very afternoon, when around 12am I crossed paths with your tumblr. I just can't keep my hand off scrolling down, it's 1:40pm now, and I feel it was worth it - even when I know I should be working hard to get what I want. It's just that the only think I want right now is you.
Let me be clear: Unarmed college hopefuls don’t deserve to be shot. Unarmed kids heading to work or trade school don’t deserve to be shot. Unarmed kids floundering aimlessly through life don’t deserve to be shot. Unarmed kids who have been in trouble—even those who have been nothing but trouble—don’t deserve to be shot.
The act of pinning the tragedy of a dead black teen to his potential future success, to his respectability, to his “good”-ness, is done with all the best intentions. But if you read between the lines, aren’t we really saying that had he not been on his way to college, there’d be less to mourn?
That’s dead wrong.”
