    The New Jim Crow

    1. Ferguson, Missouri has a population of approximately 21,000 people — roughly 75% of those residents are Black

    2. The Ferguson police department has around 530 cops —less than 5 of them are Black

    3. Ferguson had *zero* homicides for all of 2014 —until Michael Brown was murdered by Darrin Wilson

    4. Things you should know: Five Myths About Black-on-Black Crime

    5. Michael Brown was 18yrs old and was about to begin college. Brown had no criminal record, and despite the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign, Mike Brown PAID FOR the cigars —those facts are all important and should be known, but even if Brown was a high school dropout with prior arrests who stole the cigars, 1) it wouldn’t have made his life any less valuable, 2) we have a court system and those are not capital offenses and 3) it doesn’t change the fact that the cop who killed him, Darren Wilson, had no idea about Brown’s personal history when he executed Brown. Wilson saw only a Black teen deemed either “too uppity” or “suspicious” because of his skin color

    Im so fucking mad Westbero Baptist Shit or whatever can literally mob around funerals and spew their crazy shit about god and how you’re going to hell but when people go to defend a black teen that was shot with out any reason besides pure blatant racism they’re getting arrested, shot, gassed, beat. Unbelievable this is 2014 not 1950.

    I made an Ice King comic with Ryan North for the latest issue of BOOM’s Adventure Time comic (made sure to grab an issue with Nick Iluzada’s cover variant). Thanks AD Whitney Leopard for the sweet gig!
