Photos that speak: Fuck your fountain. Fuck your tree. Fuck voter suppression. Fuck your labels. Fuck your stereotypes. Fuck your hatred. Fuck your restaurants. Fuck that dude. Fuck police brutality. Fuck white supremacy.
I have nothing left to say.
The pictures they don’t show in our US History books.
And two of these pictures aren’t very old either. One was taken in 2012 I think? (Not sure).
