i'm literally going to post the whole spread

anonymous asked:

I'm not trying to be rude or anything (ily))) but even though this whole ferguson thing is going on ( i don't fully understand it myself) we still live in such a great country and have it so much better than other countries in the world so be grateful

just because I’m spreading awareness by reblogging posts about it and trying to educate myself and others about literal murders going on and being ignored by the government doesn’t mean I’m being ungrateful?? I’m grateful to every extent that I am safe and I am white and I am privileged and I will never once have to get searched or pulled over or even looked at the wrong way by police because of my race. If you’re not upset and angry about what’s going on then you obviously haven’t educated yourself enough about it
