I’m only sharing tweets for those who are not on twitter and can’t see how passionate and outraged journalists are as they tweet from #Ferguson.

If you are on Twitter, here’s a good roster of people to follow if you want to keep updated.

don’t fight hate with hate
white people that have never had to fight for their humanity  (via majiinboo)

One misconception outsiders have about Haiti, or any so-called “third world” country, is that poverty is all there is. Reality tells a different story. People live, die, get married, lose their virginity, graduate high school and college, dream and strive in Haiti. There are, in fact, many possibilities.

Haitians are humans, not symbols of poverty. But you shouldn’t have to go to Haiti to find that out.

haitianhistory:

Today in Haitian History - August 8, 1912 - Haitian National Palace explodes with President Cincinnatus Leconte.
Early in the morning of August 8, 1912, the National Palace was blown to pieces, presumably, by opponents to the central government. Along with the Haitian president, Cincinnatus Leconte, who had been in power for less than a year, many soldiers were killed in the extraordinary incident. 
Some historians maintain that, this event, which perhaps represents one of the greatest highlights of Haiti’s turn of the century political instability, convinced observers in Washington that an intervention would be imperative in the Caribbean Republic, in part, to put an end to the general anarchy in Haitian government affairs. A Marine Occupation took place almost exactly three years later and lasted for nineteen years.
