Do not wear contact lenses if you are in a situation where you may be tear-gassed. When I went through basic training, we were warned that there was a possibility the tear gas they were using could melt contact lenses.
Why are people bringing their young children to the Ferguson protests?? With the threat of tear gas and violence ever-present I don’t understand why one would think it a good idea to bring children. You can educate your kids without exposing them to that risk.
Idgaf I’d bring em. There were young children marching in the 60s getting bit by dogs, stomped on by horses, placed in jail and worse. The entire community (including kids) should witness and be apart of what going on.
ha i am really sick of non-black people of color trying to act like mike brown’s murder, and the extrajudicial murders of black people in the us, stems from “racism” and not anti-blackness and the criminality ascribed to black people and lack of worth ascribed to black lives
