Normal Ernesto Cando
ernestocando Mi vida cambió cuando descubrí un mal universal que ha causado estragos desde tiempos inmemoriales. Sexismo. Solía creer que se llamaba machismo, pero resulta que el machismo es una de las cabezas de un monstruo de 1000 cabezas. También descubrí que los hombres tenemos privilegios solo porque tenemos un pene, ¿no es eso horrible? La imagen la tomé de Tumblr, una cuenta llamada ineedfeminism: Necesito feminismo porque el movimiento de los derechos de los hombres ya pasó, hace mucho tiempo, tuvo un enorme éxito y se salió totalmente de control. #feminism #feminist #equalrights 14min

feminist.as.fuck (Post 1/4 - Baltimore “Riots”)
On April 19, 2015, Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old African American man who was a resident of the U.S. city of Baltimore, Maryland, died in police custody a week after being arrested. Apparently in good health at the time of his arrest one week prior, Gray fell into a coma while in transport as the result of injuries to his neck and spine sustained while being transported in a police vehicle. On May 1, 2015, Gray's death was ruled to be a homicide and legal charges were issued against the six officers involved in the incident, including that of second-degree murder.

Gray is just one out of hundreds of African Americans who have been killed by police in 2015.

Peaceful protests were organized after Gray's death became public knowledge. Spontaneous protests started after the funeral service, although some of these eventually included violent elements.

The Baltimore Sun covered the events showing a picture of two people destroying a car. Out of thousands of frames, this is how @baltimoresun chooses to visually frame a day where 4K marched.

One tweet from American hip-hop artist Talib Kweli, who had a picture of many people standing in solidarity with one or both hands raised, shows how the protests could and should have been covered: as a movement against police brutality so heartfelt and widespread that it united even rival gangs.

Many white Americans have responded to the riots in Baltimore saying that “violence is never the answer”, “black youths use this as an excuse to be violent”, and that black youths is “showing their true nature”. Although when a Baltimore mother of six was captured on video “disciplining” (slapping him repeatedly in the face) her son Michael, who was throwing rocks at the police, she was being hailed as a hero and called “Mother of the Year” by many whites.
It’s interesting how violence suddenly becomes okay when it fits your point of view and/or opinion.

This response to the events in Baltimore is a very hypocritical and racist response as whites, of course, have rioted and destroyed others property as well.
In the picture you can find one example.
