Tuesday afternoon, Ferguson protesters march in downtown St. Louis, from City Hall to the US Courthouse. 

This is super important

Let us be vividly clear about this.

What the New York Times did to Michael Brown today was not merely slander. It wasn’t a case of a lack of journalistic integrity.

Highlighting that a black teenager was “no angel” on the day he is being laid to rest after being hunted and killed by racist vigilante forces is not an unfortunate coincidence.

The New York Times deliberately played into an archaic American tradition in devaluing both the merit of black life and the tragedy of black death.

They chose the day of his funeral, as his family, friends and activists everywhere have to grapple with a human being lost to pontificate about how he was “no angel”. Michael Brown was many things to many people; a son, a brother, a cousin, a nephew and another black causality of murderous police institutions and today, amidst all the racist violence he, his loved ones and community have had to endure, he was going to finally receive the respect and moment of honor he deserved and NYT decided today, of all days, to tune in their audience onto wholly irrelevant facts about his life - that in turn, transform the very injustice surrounding his death and the following police violence that plagued Ferguson into a national panel about whether or not his death is actually worth mourning and their language suggested that to them, it indeed is not.

This was hardly an accident or mistake. This is the perpetual hostility that is met against black life in America. The consensus is that black people deserve no respect and for black life to be legitimized and honored, we must meet a list of prerequisites. Subsequently, if black people aren’t valued, neither are our deaths understood as tragic or murders seen as criminal action.

This has been the atmosphere of America since its inception and much has not improved.

alright basically over the span of two weeks, the following has occurred:

  • jon said that a feature on the ps4 was r****ded and when he was politely told that he shouldn’t use that word, he told that person “oh sorry i didn’t know you were r****ded” and said that he didn’t care about being pc.
  • when he was promptly called out for that behavior, he pretty much said that the sj movement should be labeled as terrorism before using actual terrorism to gaslight the situation and say that people should care more about violence in palestine instead of things he said (although he has since apologized when people thought he was using the horrors going on there to make himself look better).
  • after this, he started posting and retweeting anti-sj imagery, including images of lynching saying “remember when /this/ was social justice” and just being generally unpleasant about sj when nobody was really bothering with him anymore after another half-assed “i’m sorry but i’m not because lol comedy” apology in an obviously biased interview done with an anti-sj website.
  • neil cicierga called him on this and jon responded by kissing his ass and claiming innocence instead of just admitting he was at fault.
  • yesterday after tim schafer posted a video by anita sarkeesian about sexist video game tropes saying that everyone who makes games should watch it, jon claimed it was bullshit by saying that men are stereotyped too and it goes both ways. tim called him on this and jon just whined about how tim sicced his fandom on him and continued to cry male tears instead of, again, dealing with what he did wrong.
  • during this, he proceeded to reveal himself for the mra shitstain he really is on the co-optional podcast by not only implying that the sj movement is bigotry, but saying that he doesn’t know what ableist means, hates being called that and a sexist despite claiming that he doesn’t give a shit what people think, and agreeing that there’s no need to have a discussion about sexism in gaming among other gross comments.
  • also there was him saying “i make white cis scum hating videos” immediately after saying he regretted most of what he’s done recently, proving he’s learned fuckall.
  • finally, during all this, he’s continuously stirred the “why did jon leave game grumps” pot by making jokes about why he left and retweeting things claiming the current grumps have censored things about him (i say claiming because that image has seen been debunked).

i’ve been out for most of the afternoon so if he’s done something today, idk about it, but this is what i know. if anyone has anything else they’d like to add/any corrections, feel free to reply to this post, reblog, or message me about it.

i think the funniest thing is people who think the ps4 incident was the only thing jon did during these past two weeks when he’s basically revealed himself to hold the beliefs of an old school redditor, stirred the “lol i hate the way i left grumps but i’ll never tell why!!!!!!” pot again, and just generally acted like a shitbaby.

this is not a man who did one single thing and is getting mobbed for it; this is a man who’s done a handful of incidents throughout his four years on the internet and people are finally tired of it, especially since he doesn’t understand that when you hurt someone’s feelings and you need to account for it, the state of someone’s well-being is more important than the state of your pride.
