This is what a police state looks like.

& what the fuck did we have from 2005 to 2008, when 80% of those stopped on the street by police were Black and Latino? when people can’t get from point A to point B without getting stopped by cops, i think that’s THE de facto definition of a police state, but white kids beat up and suddenly everyone’s aware that it’s a police state? where were all these folks then? but now you wanna be upset that we’re living in a police state. i wonder fucking why.
