A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

I don’t know who any of these folks are.

They were tourists I presume.

But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

(Laughs.)

There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

I’m just gonna keep reblogging this because this is truly how white America works. Like people have their weddings on plantations, Blackface was and still is a major source of entertainment and the biggest movie of all time was Gone With the Wind. White America will kill Black people and then smile and laugh and enjoy their day it sickens me that we’re treated this way.

speaking of orphan black and representation

this show is very dedicated to the concept of agency buuuut only for white people

take amelia for example

i don’t see people talk about her very often and i think that might be because she was killed by everyone’s white fave (i love helena too but…)

but we should talk about amelia. amelia was exploited by the same people all the clones were. she agreed to be a surrogate mother. she did not agree to be an accomplice in a cloning experiment. she made a choice to protect helena and sarah and the narrative rewards her for that choice by killing her

killing her and then largely forgetting about her. sarah forgives helena for killing their birth mother in such a short span of time. a woman who in sarah’s own words she had been dreaming about her whole life.

and it’s just like…

black women are always the surrogate mothers aren’t they. not necessarily physically but (and forgive my american baggage for a second) this feels like some mammy type bullshit

the ever suffering black woman giving up her life to care for white children who has no life of her own
