I spent my lunch break drawing this. It was more personal than taking a picture. #HandsUpFriday #LastWords #Ferguson
The quotes above came from this Upworthy article: http://www.upworthy.com/here-are-10-images-by-the-time-i-reached-the-third-one-i-was-crying-by-the-10th-i-was-furious?g=2&c=ufb1
Ladies and Gentleman, the man that will be in history books. He was throwing the burning tear gas. Not to the cops but away from the children protesting. In his American Shirt and bag of chips. Check his twitter.
HE HAS ALSO STATED NOT TO PURCHASE THE T-SHIRTS THAT ARE BEING SOLD WITH HIS IMAGE BECAUSE HIM NOR THE TOWN OF FERGUSON WILL SEE THAT MONEY!
Just needs to be stated again!
“Not to the cops but away from the children protesting”

This is the self-proclaimed liberal newspaper of record. Would make Fox News blush.
When I show these photos to people nowadays they don’t believe me when I tell them where they were taken, and if you are familiar with Lebanese politics you will be surprised as well.
These are photos from the Northern Lebanese city of Tripoli, on May 25th of 2000. Militants and residents of South Lebanon drove captured Israeli military vehicles in a parade that extended along the coast from the border with Occupied Palestine to the border with Syria in the north. They were met with jubilant Lebanese citizens who pelted them with flowers and rice all along the way.
This is inconceivable today, which is why no one believes me till I show them the source, but things were different back then. It seems like so long ago now, a different age.
