Twitter – Resources

Twitter is the best place for up to the minute information about Ferguson and any actions taking place. Young people are THANKFULLY the leaders of this movement & we have to both take our cue from them & be where they are vs expecting them to come to us if we want to be true allies

In addition Twitter provides an alternative news/information source outside of the mainstream media (MSM) who have shown in coverage of Ferguson and so many other racially based stories to be biased and inadequate (in some cases just blatantly lying to sell the police/government agenda)
