OTHER POLICE OFFICERS NEED TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST THIS. THIS DOES NOT HAPPEM TO WHITE PEOPLE WHEN THEIR 4 yo TAKES A BARBIE. THIS SHIT HAPPENS EVERY DAY. THESE COPS MUST BE FIRED AND ACTION TAKEN

Biden's presidential campaign confirmed to NBC News that he still supports the Hyde Amendment, a 1976 ban on federal funds for abortion, except in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the woman, which restricts access for low-income women.

I want white supremacy to end no matter what it means for me or other white people. I must do whatever I/we can to end the crushing system of white supremacy that keeps white womanhood in place as a site for punishing& erasing people of color~

underscored why I, as a child sexual abuse & adult rape survivor, am unequivocal in my belief that we must dismantle the criminal injustice system in and abolish the prison industrial complex. If you are able to view the series, please make the time.

I honor & respect. what everyone must do to take care of themselves which may include not viewing . I knew it was required viewing. It wasn’t easy at all, but it was necessary for me.

I knew it would be excruciatingly painful to view , but not nearly one fraction of the pain that Raymond Santana, Jr., Korey Wise, Yusef Salaam, Antron McCray, and Kevin Richardson experienced and may still experience because of PTSD.

I’ve been traveling on the west coast for 9-days & during my travels I wasn’t able to watch when it premiered 5/31. Less than an hour after I returned home last night after 9pm, I sat down to watch ’s heart wrenchingly brilliant 4-part series in its entirety.

And let's not pretend this nation doesn't have a long history of kidnapping children and holding them in some form of bondage. The atrocities being committed against children at the border is more consistent w/ US history than it is inconsistent.

Said it before, saying it again: I'm convinced there is some level of child trafficking occurring at the border. A gov't doesn't make plans to take children from their parents w/ no plan for reunification unless kidnapping is the objective.

“Ultimately, the hysteria surrounding the Central Park Jogger case gave rise to new language about black-youth crime, and to new laws that caused more children to stand trial as adults than at any other time in American history."

. DuVernay doesn’t like the term “Central Park Five.” “They’re not the Central Park Five,” she said on . “They’re Korey, Yusef, Antron, Kevin, and Raymond.”

After working for more than four years on the film, "When They See Us," filmmaker DuVernay is clear about one thing involving the infamous Central Park Five case.
