I don’t think I know anyone with this background, but maybe we can signal boost. One major thing the Ferguson organizers have been asking for specifically for several days is for service donations from mental health professionals with a background in trauma counseling, people of color would be preferable for obvious reasons. If you know someone who might be willing to either to go to Ferguson or do tele-sessions, please direct them to this form.

This kind of thing is classified as Fat Talk. Being accepting of your body can be a struggle, and there is a fragment of society that views this self-criticism as the norm and even to a certain degree encourages it, through magazine articles that encourage you to “lose ten kilos fast,” try some new diet or dress in a way that makes you appear thinner/more tan/taller, etc. By making these comments, whether it be to yourself or to someone else, the cycle of negative body image is increased and becomes further entrenched in wider society. Body image and mental health is fast becoming the one of the largest concerns affecting youth today, and although it may seem like an offhand thing to say to yourself, to others it may trigger serious self-doubt and self-deprecating thoughts.

Fact: Unlike the gay agenda™, the bisexual agenda contains a 15 minute break for snacks between sessions.

Fact: The asexual agenda is entirely made of snacks, with a 15 minute break for all out anarchy

Fact: The pansexuals, with their extreme love for kitchen ware, make all the snacks.

Thomas Jackson, Asshole of the Day for August 15, 2014
by TeaPartyCat (Follow @TeaPartyCat)
Ferguson Police Chief spent the morning going over documents and video tape related to a nearby theft that Michael Brown was a suspect in. Robbery. Top suspect.
Then after all that, Chief Jackson said this afternoon:

“The initial contact between the officer and Mr. Brown was not related to the robbery,” Thomas Jackson, the police chief, said during a news conference Friday afternoon.
Rather, it stemmed from the fact that Brown and his friend were “walking down the street blocking traffic,” Jackson said.

So then Brown wasn’t shot because he was a suspect fleeing a petty crime— not that fleeing a theft is grounds for shooting— but for how he handled being stopped for jaywalking. Jaywalking.
So why did Chief Jackson spend all morning on the robbery details? By his own admission now, those details played NO ROLE in the shooting. NONE.
Hmmm. Here’s a few thoughts that I flagged on Twitter today, which I think get to the heart of it:

Someone at the press conference just said “seems like you’re only answering questions that demean the character of Mike Brown”

What I know is this: when an unarmed Black man/woman is killed by police or by another citizen, a period of character assassination begins.

So the robbery played no part, but Chief Jackson spent all morning smearing a man his officer killed over a jaywalking encounter. And that is why he is the Asshole of the Day.
It is Thomas Jackson’s first time as Asshole of the Day.
