While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.
You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.
The John Crawford story makes me so angry.
Breaking via ABC News: UN Human Rights Council votes to open inquiry into alleged war crimes in Gaza; U.S. is the ONLY “no” vote.
That’s because the U.S. is a direct accomplice to every war crime that Israel commits.
And yet there were 17 abstentions, too. Why not mention that? Perhaps because we have no idea of the actual text of the resolution, and instead are given a reductive image from July that tells us nothing. Cool.
