A Democratic Missouri state senator representing parts of Ferguson who tweeted multiple times “fuck you,” at Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon defended her choice of words on Fox News Monday saying she did so because she was tear-gassed for three days.

“The reason why I used profane language is because he has allowed us to get tear-gassed for three days,” Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal said. “I am one of his senators in his party and he was at the state fair enjoying a country concert while we were getting teargassed and shot at. And yes, anyone who’s going to get teargassed deserves to say a few ‘F’ bombs here and there.”

“I represent my constituents, not Gov. Nixon,” the senator said. “He has been absent from the minority community his entire career and only comes before us when it is politically expedient for him. Or when he’s running for office, and because he has been outside of this community…let me tell you this, and this is important for your audience to know. He has still yet to come to ground zero. Yet to come to ground zero. He’s been in Florissant, he’s been in Normandy, but he has not spoken to the victims of the crisis we are dealing with and that is why I have called him a coward.”

It’s the immemorial feelings
I like the best: hunger, thirst,
their satisfaction; work-weariness,
earned rest; the falling again
from loneliness to love;
the green growth the mind takes
from the pastures in March;
— Wendell Berry, from “Goods” (with gratitude to Whiskey River)

funny how a bunch of white people can violently harass people going into an abortion clinic and the cops never show up even when they’re physically touching the patients against their will but if black people organize a totally non-violent and non-confrontational protest after a member of their community has been murdered they bring out the police dogs and shotguns and claim it’s going to be a riot lol

For anyone who doesn’t know who Michael Brown is or what’s been going on in Ferguson

Edit: I’ll do my best to keep this updated. If there’s anything I missed or anything that is incorrect please let me know and I’ll change it or add it. 

Edit: I’m trying to keep this post as up to date as possible but it’s so hard to keep up with everything that’s going on in Ferguson. This is unreal.

Edit: Sign this petition! “Please Enact New Federal Laws to Protect Citizens from Police Violence and Misconduct”

Also, I forgot to add this link before but there have been dozens of peaceful vigils organized to pay respect to victims of police shootings/brutality. The National Moment of Silence 2014 vigils are scheduled for TONIGHT AUGUST 14, 2014. Here’s a link for all of the organized events. Check it out to find your city.

Joolabird leaves the nest.

locallygrownn:

"The Long way Home", was coined a relatable phrase by my subconscious, one Monday afternoon while I was pedaling my bicycle along the sidewalk. I clenched the breaks, and let the idea play catch-up into my conscious mind. 

"The Long Way Home."

And in a phrase, I knew that forevermore if anyone asked which direction I had been going, or why, I would tell them I was simply taking the long way home. And the truth that I would come to find, that lay in that statement- still gives me goosebumps. You see, nobody teaches you how to seamlessly make your trauma and your life; coincide. Coping is the continuous choice to choose one or the other. To climb inside your pain and put a coat on to brave her cold- or choose life and make the pain play like a naughty girl in her bedroom. When footsteps finally reach the height of the stairs, knock on her door, and tell her, “ It’s time to come out now.”
This is where the healing begins. 

It has taken me nothing short of eleven months now to put away the panic in my chest, and begin to carve out the kind of life I have always imagined for myself. The past year has lead me from Minnesota, to Wisconsin,and back again, in what I know now to be a ruthless effort to bring me healing in the most holistic sense of the word. 

The Long way Home, exists as a means to authentically portray my experience in walking out into the world, unwounded. Bearing not the weight of her past, but the new weightlessness found in finally pursuing her future. And so we begin: Joolabird leaves the nest.
