The Best of the September Issues: Actress Viola Davis for MORE Magazine September 2014

Photography: Peggy Sirota

Styling: Jonny Lichtenstein

Not an academic observation but I feel as though I’m seeing more and more black people grace the covers of magazines or, at the very least, have killer features.

Then again, I may just be a little (unashamedly) biased.

Why White people are not coming out against the racism in Ferguson. He is dead on.

I could chill with this dude.

I want to thank this man for telling some serious truth. And he didn’t do it in a way that makes him come off as disingenuous. It’s not patronizing. It’s just honest. We don’t ever get that much out of the people who consider themselves “progressive”. He definitely has the right perspective on it. Plus, I just really like that he’s fired up about it. That gives me hope.

He ROCKS!

This is the only type of white dude I could ever seriously date.

postracialcomments:

The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department
Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)
(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)
Residents knew it was BS. 
Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”
Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department
Do not let her story go ignored

reverseracism:

Their having a discussion about ‘the talk’ on cnn when it comes to encountering the police and how one of the unspoken rules is to not resist arrest even if you know it’s unlawful. This white lawyer says, as a American Citizen you have the right to resist arrest if you don’t think it’s lawful. A black lawyer countered by saying that if he and black men like him resisted arrest if it was a wrongful one, there is no guarantee that he will be able to survive that encounter.
