This is a resource post for all the Good White Person™s out there. You know, the ones who say things like “It’s not my fault I’m white! Don’t generalize white people!”, or “I’m appreciating your culture! You should be proud!”, or “Why do you hate all white people, look I’m a special snowflake who’s not racist give me an award for meeting the minimum requirements for being a decent human being”.Well, if you are actually interested in understanding racism and how it ties into cultural appropriation, please read instead of endlessly badgering PoCs on tumblr with your cliched, unoriginal arguments and repeating the same questions over and over.

BUY A ZINE TO HELP FUND-RAISE FOR SOUTHERN WOMAN’S BOOKSTORE!
Muchacha Fanzine presents Issue #9 “Body Positivity”
This edition of Muchacha aims to challenge the mainstream white/heterosexual/able-bodied/cisgender-centric feminist movement of “body positivity.” The intention of this issue is to reclaim the term “body positivity” in a way that is inclusive of diverse voices and encourages reflectivity on how bodies can also be cause for pain, conflict, and/or healing.
This 40 page edition includes body positivity visual art, a letter to a hipster guy who would never date a vegan, a brown body at a punk show, gentrification, song lyrics, empowering poetry, body diversity in videos and tv shows, if barbie were real, body positivity from a queer, fat, trans*, chronically ill perspective, self-love collages, a roller derby story, a Southern Woman’s Bookstore announcement, and more!
If you haven’t heard, Muchacha Fanzine/the Denton Femme Fest organizers have teamed up to open the 13th feminist bookstore in the U.S.: Southern Woman’s Bookstore in Denton, Texas.All proceeds of “Body Positivity” will be donated to Southern Woman’s Bookstore. 
We are different from other bookstores, because we place an emphasis on honoring diverse books and zines written by women, people of color, and LGBTQ individuals, because we feel that marginalized voices, as these, need to be more widely represented and accessible to the community.

CNN has obtained a video, taken shortly after Michael Brown was shot, that shows a contractor who had been working near the shooting site describing the incident in a manner that matches other eyewitness testimony—raising his arms and shouting “man, he was going like this,” as if to suggest that Brown had adopted a posture of surrender before he died.

Two contractors are shown in the video, and both have spoken to CNN; one also spoke previously to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and one to Fox affiliate KTVI. The individual who is shouting and raising his arms in in the video told CNN that “the cop didn’t say get on the ground. He just kept shooting.” The other said that he saw officer Darren Wilson “chasing” Brown, that Wilson fired a shot at Brown while Brown’s back was turned, and that Brown raised his hands before he died, though it’s not clear at what point the witness saw Brown’s hands raised. (For what it’s worth, it seems like the worker who spoke to KTVI is the one wearing a pink shirt in the video and that the worker who spoke to the Post-Dispatch is wearing a green shirt.)

The CNN account notes that the workers are not from Ferguson and did not know the Brown family—a detail that could increase their perceived objectivity vis a vis witnesses from Brown’s neighborhood.

33 Days since Mike Brown’s murder, and his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. How much more evidence is needed to make a fucking arrest?!  #farfromover #staywoke #ArrestDarrenWilson
