I am not here for people dismissing what happened as a “mistake” or “poor decision making”

A mistake is when I forget to bring a writing utensil to class

A poor decision is when I buy a bag of chips instead of some fucking carrots

What happened to Michael Brown was murder

What’s happening to the people of Ferguson is domestic terrorism

Facts, myths, and flat out lies are already out there in Michael’s case. Theories, regardless of how ridiculous, are being pondered by the pundits. My advice is to surround yourselves with proven and trusted support. Through it all, I never let go of my faith, my family, or my friends. Long after the overwhelming media attention is gone, you will need those three entities to find your ‘new normal.’ Honor your son and his life, not the circumstances of his alleged transgressions. I have always said that Trayvon was not perfect. But no one will ever convince me that my son deserved to be stalked and murdered. No one can convince you that Michael deserved to be executed.
