  • A movement that must continue...to bring justice to those we lost because of racism and to bring awareness of Matthew Rushin who is unjustly in prison serving a 50 year sentence for a non deadly car accident....community needs to come back and have each others back.

  • Some victims and their families, fearing stigmatization, police extortion and a lack of trust in the judicial process, choose not to report cases to the authorities.

There are also  instances where those brave enough to report are targeted with derogatory comments at the police station.

They are either vilified for their dressing, being at the wrong place at the wrong time or accused of making up claims of rape. 

In Nigeria, it is not uncommon for rape to go unreported. It is the toughest place to convict Rapists. 

Many are tired of the increasing number of incidents despite all the protests,  @esteemhub in collaboration with other organizations

Top #saytheirnames Posts

  • George’s brother called him a gentle giant. Breonna’s nickname was Breezy. Ahmaud loved to run. Tamir drew cartoon characters he saw on TV. Trayvon wanted to be a pilot. Oscar wanted to be a barber. Eric was a father of six. Philando was a school cafeteria supervisor who memorized every kid’s name. Samuel hosted talent shows for his children. Sandra had a video blog about racial injustice. Walter loved singing soul music. Terence had a twin sister. Sean was always smiling. Botham’s pastor described him as the light in a dark room.
.
Every person on this list was a Black person murdered by police.
.
It was easy to find thousands of articles about how George, Tamir, Elijah and so many others died, but much harder to find stories about how they lived. For me, saying their names was important, but so was knowing who they were. How they died makes me furious, knowing how they lived makes them unforgettable. I know posts like this are a good start, but I also know I have to do more.

  • July 4th, 1776 was nearly 100 years before slavery was abolished. For a holiday that supposedly commemorates our "freedom," isn't it ironic to celebrate our "independence" if not everyone was free? 🤔
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whether you choose to celebrate or not, take a moment to reflect on the meaning of today based on our country's racist history. There's still so 👏 much 👏 work 👏 to be done. Be uncomfortable, unlearn then re-learn and do it all over again, because this is a movement, not a moment ✊ And don't forget to wear a mask! #radicalgirlgang

  • It’s been over a MONTH - between Black Lives Matter, immigration issues, amplifying my voice at work over BIPOC issues, COVID-19 cases on the rise in the US, and probably other areas I’m overlooking. But your girl is TIREDDD!

I’ve taken over a month off from posting on my IG page and stuck to spreading further info about Black Lives Matter, ICE/immigration, and other causes dear to me on my IG stories. I intend to make some additional IG Story Highlights once I pinpoint the categories. Thank you to everyone who has replied to my Stories, reposted and started convos. All of it is appreciated. Tomorrow I intend to restart my feed, for right now I just wanted to say thanks. 

This post and those immediately following include graphics that I created.

  • (I’ve turned off commenting due to the amount of comments I had to delete from bots and self promoters. honestly disgusting people.) This isn’t one of my usual posts, but this is important (not the art, just the topic). Elijah McClain’s Murderers have not been arrested. Breonna Taylor’s murderers have not been arrested. We need to keep fighting, it is not just a trend! even if you’re like me, just a white kid living in small town in total lockdown because victorians are kinda stupid and can’t protest or donate, signing petitions can still help! Signing petitions is all I’ve been doing in between posts. And those who have been protesting, donating, changing ignorant people’s minds, I love you so much. Remember to stay safe in these times, remember to stand up for blm and most importantly, remember to check your privilege. I wish I could say more, I wish I could talk like those inspirational people at the protests encourage people to push forward, but I’m just a kid doing what I can.

  • Out of all the protest I've shot during this moment..this one really hit hard. It was a funeral procession from District Heights MD to Black Lives Matter Plaza coordinated by local funeral homes as a representation of a funeral for all lives lost through police brutality and/or the failings of our justice system. There were over 50+ hearses, 30+ limousines,  and 20+ cars in the procession. Pallbearers unloaded a customized casket with pictures and names of those lost which was strolled down 16th street with a brass band, followed by the second line, and led by Elder @rickpringle. At 16th and I Street a service was conducted with prayers, an eulogist, songs, and the release of doves.

  • "D O N ' T   M E N T I O N   T H E   B A B Y . . . "

This is what you tell your guests before I arrive. "It may make her feel sad," you say, convinced that you have my best interests at heart. Maybe you do, in your own way. Or maybe you worry I'll dampen the mood with my words.
____

Either way, ten minutes later I find myself in a room where no one even looks in my direction. It's only been four months since I lost her and yet, she is never mentioned. I worried beforehand that I may make people uncomfortable. But your words did that for me.
____ 

You told them, "Don't mention the baby. I don't think she'd want to talk about it." So they don't. They ask about my job. We talk about the weather. What car I drive. Even the food on my plate gets a mention. But never my children.
____ 

In my absence, you decided to tell them my story. Awful, you say. Devastating. Shocking. What are the chances? There must have been something wrong with her, right? These things don't just happen. And then you remind everyone of the one golden party rule - don't mention the baby.
____

But it is what you DIDN'T say that matters the most.
____

You failed to mention that although I am a grieving parent, I am also a proud one. You didn't even tell them her name. Or that I openly speak about her, often with a smile on my face that only a mother's love can paint.
____

You told the world to not mention my baby and in doing so, layed more bricks upon the wall of taboo we as loss parents already face.
____

But you were wrong. And that wall's coming down.
____ 

Brick by brick. Conversation by conversation.
____

And a lifetime of mentions ❤

  • We’re proud to embrace community calls to #defundthepolice in order to invest in more effective alternatives to ensure public safety. The documented history of abuses has grown so severe that we can’t afford to let it continue. The time for half-measures ended long ago.

We have critical opportunities for local dissent coming up this week, and we invite you to share your concerns. On July 8 at 12:30, the Board of Supervisors will host a budget hearing, and the Board’s Rules Committee meets on July 9 at 2pm. To get more info, join @defundsfpdnow at https://bit.ly/noSFPDcash
