Let’s not pretend like the police actions taken this week are anything new. It’s just the most recent manifestation of a problem America has had for a very long time.

These Women Are Using Selfies To Reclaim #Latina Identity On Tumblr

labrownrecluse:

reclaimingthelatinatag:

Reclaiming The Latina Tag was featured on BuzzFeed!

Here’s the story, which includes some quotes yours truly provided for the piece and a few of the beautiful selfies some of our followers have submitted:

Tumblr — like Twitter and now Facebook — uses hashtags to categorize conversations on various topics, but what Xochilt Montano found browsing the #latina tag in late 2012 shocked and angered her.

 The Reclaiming the Latina Tag founder told BuzzFeed that when she “dared to peek at #latina on Tumblr,” she was shocked to see it was “ALL porn.”

 “That really pushed me over the edge and made me incredibly angry so I had the idea to ‘reclaim’ the tag.” 

Montano sees the selfie as an “act of resistance” against stereotypes.

RTLT regularly makes calls for “Bomb the Latina Tag” sprints, where readers submit photos tagged #latina with information “anywhere from descent, memories, achievements and goals, or random thoughts.” 

Many contributors have been reblogged by fetishists when they tag their selfies.

“It’s pretty tiring having to block all the fetishizing perverts, but it’s worth [it] if we stop seeing hypersexualized (without permission) or demeaning memes on the latina tag. And to creepy people who fetishize yo y mis hermanas: this GIF is for you.”

Readers also submit questions or comments regularly via Tumblr’s Ask feature.

Taking back the tag is about celebration, says Montano: “I want to let people know that there are Latina politicians, writers, activists, scientists, athletes, academics, artists, and award-winning actresses and musicians.”

“I want to celebrate the accomplishments of Latina women and also show that Latinas have different nationalities, races, sexual orientations, ethnicities, psychical characteristics, and social classes…”

“Reclaiming The Latina Tag strives to be a safe space for Latinas to get to know their history and also become inspired by the amazing achievements of other Latinas.”

Montano is the founder but there are four other contributors who also reblog and create content.

They spelled ur name wrong >:|

TUESDAY 8/19: Ferguson PD presented a table full of fabricated evidence at this morning’s press conference - allegedly seized from protestors and stopped cars. The Colt 45 Molotov with a white bandana was the crowning glory, turns out you can’t even buy glass 40’s in Missouri. Stay classy, FPD

I seriously think white supremacist are coming in the area to frame the protesters, but it could just be the cops

Colt 45 Molotov cocktail? What’s next, a watermelon incendiary bomb? A fried chicken pipe bomb? These jokers can’t even frame folks without their racism showing.

Here’s an article talking about the ban on glass 40s in St Louis and the surrounding areas, btw.

http://www.stlmag.com/news/Big-Bottles-of-Chilled-Beer-Are-Back-in-the-City/

The people coming into Ferguson provoking violence against local protesters, be they opportunist wannabe radicals treating it like a revolutionary fantasy camp or police-planted provocateurs, are horrid and very real.

Never ever ever ever ever forget that the violence being directed at this community is being unilaterally instigated by police in an effort to enforce systematic white supremacy. Do not be distracted by the excuses authorities try to make for themselves.

Reblogging for the link and commentary.

Who are you getting your Ferguson information from? I'm having problems verifying what's actually happening!

That’s actually what’s taking me so long to update some of my posts; not only is the information surfacing slowly about his case specifically, but I make sure to cross reference at least three sources because some people are just blatantly lying to stir shit up.

Also live feeds keep going down and new ones pop back up but I know some of you are sensitive to video, so

Here’s a list of some twitter handles:

Journalists (All of these are either on the ground in Ferguson as I type this or actively covering events in Ferguson, both Brown’s case and the rallies):

Residents/Legislature/Other:

Instagram Accounts: (TW: Some of these accounts feature graphic video or images of Ferguson events)

Tumblr Accounts:

I’m sure I forgot a bunch but here’s a start. I’ll update it periodically and reblog. Some of it is compilations from a bunch of sources, some is original content. Disclaimer: I’m not vouching for any other content on any of these blogs/twitters/instagrams or any that may be posted after this list but as of right now, the information regarding Ferguson and discussions taking place about the rallies/police and Mike Brown’s death seems accurate.

if you want to be included on any of these lists, shoot me a message with your web-address and I’ll check it out

You will find everything I’ve posted under tagged/ferguson, tagged/police-brutality or tagged/michael-brown

updated and combined.

Thought I should share this. Let this sink in for a minute. Luis was killed for no reason (i’m assuming he’s of another race), this is happening all over, not just in Ferguson. This makes my skin crawl.

Y’all not pressing charges becuz he technically died of a heart attack …. THAT THE POLICE MOST LIKELY CAUSED FOR BEATING HIM! Smdh
