There’s a well known saying: “There’s truth in jest”.
Jon Stewart proves it again. His “rant” covers so many points. It’s right on the money and we need to hear all of it attentively and with an open mind.
“I guarantee you that every person of color in this country has faced an indignity, from the ridiculous to the grotesque to the sometimes fatal, at some point in their … I’m going to say last couple of hours.
Race is there, and it is a constant. You’re tired of hearing about it?
Imagine how ****ing exhausting it is living with it.”

~~This Might Be Jon Stewart’s Best Rant Ever. Because Ferguson~~
“By now, some of you are thinking, “Man, I’m so tired of hearing about Ferguson.” I see it in my comments all the time. But rather than explain to you why I think that’s not the best thing to say, I’m gonna let Jon Stewart do it. He’s way more eloquent than me. And he smashes pretty much every argument you might have about why we need to keep talking in an eloquent manner.”
I am borrowing powerful images which my friend MrMilitantNegro has included in his slideshows in powerful posts. They need to be shown and shared time and time again.
I’m sure hope he doesn’t mind. I’m almost sure … brother and sister get along quite well.

Take some time and look at all of these pictures. There are quite a few. Stop at each and think how it would feel if it affected you personally.
