The mayor of Ferguson got the nerve to talk about “there is no racial divide in Ferguson”

Lol my friend who is from Missouri, near Ferguson just confirmed in a chat earlier today that the cops there are “hella racist” “definitely for sure racist”. He said if they had a choice between a white guy and a black guy…well you know. It’s a well known fact. He’s white y’all.

I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture. 

So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.

Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome. 

So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.

Just teared up. Both my brothers have autism.

I remember when I was a kid, I went on the computer just to use Paint or the pinball game

I’m so glad I wasn’t the only one who did this…

I’m just going to post what I wanted to say here:

Did you know in 2010 (the year of this crime) over 1,700 children died of homicide in the U.S.? I’m sure there was every single race match up you can think of in those statistics.

The circumstances of that poor boy’s death are ghastly. His murder deserves justice, as does every murder. I believe they got their justice. This woman was convicted and sent to jail for the rest of her life. Short of the death penalty, that is the best outcome his family could have hoped for. 

They don’t have to live life knowing their son’s killer is walking around free. They don’t have to endure a continuing media circus every couple of months, like “Where in the world is our son’s killer?” Is he selling art on Ebay? Is he working some rich dude’s security detail? Is he speeding and getting pulled over by the cops? Is he getting in fist fights with his new girlfriend?

You got justice, they didn’t. The media doesn’t fairly cover children when abducted or murdered and that’s a shame. Sometimes you have to spread awareness yourself.
