Please don't shoot. by Lecidre Please don't shoot. by Lecidre




Being black is not a crime.









The picture is inspired by the Ferguson shooting and this powerful song, Be Free by J. Cole.




On average, there are 96 cases of a white police officer killing a black person each year between 2006 and 2012. I know racism has always been a problem in the United States of America, but all the crazy things happening in Ferguson right now are so horrible and sickening. I can't believe some white people think it's okay to mistreat another human being just because of his different skin color.


If someone seems like a suspect, the police should follow the due process of law and let him be judged properly in a court. Shooting an unarmed person and trying to cover everything up by creating lies after lies is downright low and disgusting. And it's disheartening to see those peaceful protesters' effort being thwarted by the police and some gangsters.







Take care, people in Ferguson. Be safe.

The lack of Ferguson art on DA is appalling to me.

Thank you for making this.

Thanks for the comment. :hug:

I guess most people show their concerns about the Ferguson shooting on other social media sites like twitter or tumblr. I've seen some pics on tumblr and they're pretty amazing.

發人深省的好文。
可悲的是,大部分的中產階級或白人對本次槍擊案仍抱持事不關己的態度。
如果沒有更多其他階級的人加入動員,這次事件很快就會被大家遺忘了......

What makes me even more upset is that some people still think it's okay to treat black people like that just because they "deserve" such unfair treatment. The logic is too absurd for me to comprehend.
