my mom has been a cop for over 20 years and she is the one who constantly warns me about police aggression and young male cops and told me that if you’re ever alone on a rural road and a cop throws their lights on to put on your four ways and drive to the next gas station before stopping because so many cops are scum and it’s not worth the chance of getting hurt. the fact that SHE feels the need to tell me this shit scares me to death
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
❝ If you can touch and hold and support the one you love, cherish it. If you can hold their hand and kiss their lips and play with their hair, consider yourself lucky. Being in love is a gift. Being able to breathe the same air as them is an even bigger gift. The next time you see your love, take a moment to breathe them in and realize how lucky you are to have them. ❞
