    These are modern day lynchings


    These vile crimes keeps happening. Police keep shooting unarmed black men, women, and children to death. These corrupt police are almost never actually brought to justice for their murders. They’re more likely to be rewarded by way of a paid leave. And yet there are still so many people who think we live in a post-racism society. So many people who think every murdered black person must have done something to deserve their death. So many people who think it’s okay to shoot and kill black people because black people are seen as inherently scary. So many people who rush to the defense of a murderous police officer because they think he’s just misunderstood. So many people who disingenuously treat each instance of police brutality against people of color as an isolated and rare event instead of a symptom of long-standing systematic oppression.

    It keeps happening, and it’s equal parts infuriating and heartbreaking.

    It’s ridiculous that my dad never had to warn me that maybe my simple child-like fooling around might end up getting me shot and killed by a police. Yet, that’s something that black fathers HAVE to communicate to their sons, because the world is THAT messed up. It terrifies me.

    As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!

    Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.

    black privilege….

    they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution
    it’s really scary
    it’s really infuriating
    it’s really exhausting
