CultureHISTORY: The Man from #Ferguson

On August 13th, when all hell broke loose in Ferguson, a local photographer captured this photo which has gone nationwide. It’s an image of a black man with dreads wearing an American flag shirt, throwing a tear gas canister back at the police officers while holding a bag of chips. He later said that he was only trying to get the canister away from him and some kids standing nearby.

His name is Edward (all we know so far) and he has become sort of a folk hero. Once people found him on Twitter, the salutes have not stopped and his feed is full ‘thank yous’ and respect from around the U.S. and the world. An artist has already done a rendering as a painting. Something about this photo has captivated people beyond any other and it’s become an iconic image of the protests.
I suspect he’ll be hitting the media circuits soon. Now that he’s gone national, he was thinking of changing his handle but people convinced him to leave it as is.  Twitter: @eyeFLOODpanties.

Proof that someone’s social media personality, personal photos, life or stereotypical cultural actions through these vapid mediums does DOES NOT mean they do not stand for justice, do not wish to be terrorized, do not wish to be killed. Yes, his twitter name is vulgar, yes he’s black, has dreads and is eating a bag of chips in this iconic photo…..but if you can see all of those attributes easily leading one to believe negative connotations then you will have to admit that you also see a young black man fighting for what he believes is freedom and what is right….he’s wearing an American flag t-shirt for christ’s sake, how fucking more symbolic can this photo be. Even at a basic level if you disagree with the reason for this movement, you will have the respect and decency to recognize that we are only doing what we believe is just. Bring attention to the issue, stop the violence. At a very basic level, people are dying easily and don’t have to, don’t try to justify your argument by changing it to something else, wrong is wrong. Just admit that.

Tell me the dead man was a fleeing criminal, okay? Tell me that the cop thought he had a gun, okay? Tell me then if someone shot you with a gun (specifically a police officer), would you stop resisting? Would you raise your hands in mercy? YOU PROBABLY WOULD, RIGHT?????

Now after applying ALL of that logic in the worst case scenario for you as a criminal, would you expect to get shot with your hands raised?

A gunmen and killer shooting up a theater can be wounded, captured and escorted out, but an wounded unarmed black man does not even have the chance to give up and go to jail. #WakeUpAmerica

Her storyline is so so great. Old degrassi was the best. Maybe I’m just crotchety, and falsely nostalgic, but I can’t even stomach the characters after like….2011/2012.

I feel that ^^^^

she shut that shit down!

Diahann Carroll on Oprah’s Master Class, June 9, 2013 (x)

This should be in the Bible or religious text.

"and I was just young enough to believe her"….a WORLD of fucked experiences informs that statement. Her face as she says "And thank God for that." Thank you for the beautiful lie because it saw me through some shit you would not believe!

She needs her own show again. I would love a show that goes back in times with her character on White Collar.

Diahann. You are one of the most flawless women on this earth, Diahann. Do you hear me, Diahann? Diahann.
