The Ferguson Masterpost

No, I didn't make one. Other people already made some. Here's a handy one:

The Ferguson Masterpost: How To Argue Eloquently & Back Yourself Up With Facts

I do have a problem with the use of the word "eloquent" because what that word usually really means is "talking like a white person." The creator did make a note about that, but didn't change the title for some reason. Also, keep in mind that she's white. But it's organized well enough that anyone who tries to argue with you about Ferguson will be shit out of luck as long as you have this for reference.

I also wanted to post this because I read something last weekend by a woman of color who was frustrated with white people saying they were just unfriending people saying racist shit about Ferguson rather than using their privilege to confront them. So, this will help with that.
