BlackLivesMatter is not just a mantra; it’s a response to the brutality, rape, lynching, shooting, and oppressive attacks against African American men and women.
For some reason, there is an empathy gap in the American psyche when it comes to brutality against people of color; it’s always some justification.
America has a DARK, NASTY, VILE, MALICIOUS history that has been coated with the paint of freedom and democracy but not for everyone. ‪#‎FACTS‬ ‪#‎NEVERFORGETTHAT‬
When Michael Brown was killed, people said, “We don’t know what happened.”
When Trayvon Martin was killed, people said, “This was an isolated incident.”
When Tamar Rice was killed, people said, “he shouldn’t been playing with a toy gun.”
Rakia Boyd, “Stayed in the wrong community.”
Eric Garner, “Shouldn’t been selling cigarettes.”
Freddie Gray “Shouldn’t have run.”
The Emanuel Nine, “That’s a sad situation of hatred.”
NO THIS IS STATE ORDAINED VIOLENCE AGAINST BLACK BODIES.
STOP MAKING EXCUSES AND STEP UP TO THE PLATE.
Sandra Bland DID NOT commit suicide; she was killed. It’s murder and Waller County Police Department has blood on their hands.
We have video. We’re gathering the FACTS. It’s not adding up and you’re silent.
BUT last week you were discussing that damn FLAG all up and down my timeline.
I let you all have your heritage conversations but can we just EXIST.
LET US BE!
I don’t know Sandra but I love her for fighting the good fight. She’s obviously someone EVERYONE cherished and was literally on her way to continue bringing joy to the lives of others at her alma mater.
Sandra is every Black woman I know riding up and down 290,288,I-20, 59,45 and all other Texas highways. Just imagine the mothers and fathers that will have children traveling through Texas on the way back to school and the FEAR that will be in their hearts. In America, Black people are praying not only to avoid an accident, but also to not to get killed during a routine traffic stop.
