White people:You have to wait for the facts before you talk about Ferguson!
Eyewitnesses:He was on his knees with his hands up.
Medical examiner:There was no gunpowder residue on Mike Brown, no sign of struggle, and there were entry wounds on the inside of his arms and the top of his head, implying he was on his knees with his hands up.
Convenience store owner and clerk:There was no robbery and we didn't call the cops.
Ferguson PD:Okay, we admit it, Wilson didn't know anything happened at the convenience store and we determined no crime was committed.
White people:Nobody can say what happened! We still have to wait for the facts to come in!

I fucking despise hearing news reports about children crossing the border where ‘Muricans say “we have kids here at home we need to take care of.” Most of these people are the same damn selfish assholes who are fighting to cut anything that “takes care” of anyone who isn’t themselves or their rich overlords. Stop trying to couch your racist bullshit with concern for American-born children. Show me the receipts.
