Actually I wouldn’t call myself an SJW blogger at all since I don’t actively align myself with an organization or charity group — I just like to have discussions about important topics that effect me and other oppressed groups, while at the same time (hopefully) encouraging other people to do the same. I also thank you for understanding that while I don’t mind educating people from time to time, it is something that I choose to do and shouldn’t be required of me.
But yeah, I could literally be here all day talking about what’s going on in Ferguson right now and unfortunately I do not have the time to really go in, so here are some helpful links to some really resourceful posts that other awesome people have made:
- Here’s one with a timeline of events and a short recommendation list of people to watch who are actively updating events happening in Ferguson
- Here’s another talking about the recent autopsy of Mike Brown’s body that was recently released to the public (TW: death, murder, descriptions of gun wounds)
- Here’s a really thoughtful one about what white people can do to help out and be a good ally to black folks
- And here’s a last one with a link to a fund that’s been set up to help bail out protesters that have been arrested if you’d like to donate
I also highly recommend that you keep watch on twitter, particularly on #Ferguson, since people are continuing to live tweet events as they’re happening.
Hope this helps you and anybody else that is interested in doing their part for the people of Ferguson. : )
