    What does she mean there's no lawsuit? she was detained unlawfully! She has a case! I wish my people would educate themselves, knowledge is power!

  2. Mia Love says:

    And that man is not white! I guess he like being able to pass…

  3. Ray Parnell says:

    The media and people gasping over this are so stupid. Nothing to see here except idiots slinging tears and snot over nothing.

  4. Farntella Graham says:

    individual cops need to have liability insurance that can be tapped if they violate citizen rights. the taxpayers should not have to pay for police misconduct.

  5. Tony Roper says:

    I Love you Melissa, but I would like for you to approach a vehicle where there could possibly be a gun aimed at you and how would you safely and for your protection extracate all the occupants safely..

  6. This is what Black folks are saying has gotta stop. Imagine if we stopped every white and Jewish person coming to and from their destination. We're tired of BS. The call was made by a white women concerning 4 Black males in a car. How about when 4 white males are in a car? The blatant racism of this society has reached a boiling point! Freedom or Death! They want to kill our young anyway! Do we have to do the same?

  7. Veronica Davis McInnis says:

    Farntella Graham ; exactly! Just like doctors have liability insurance in the case of malpractice, and an attorney can lose they license in cases of misconduct…these people need to be held accountable….and you're right, the taxpayers are footing the bill for these adrenaline fueled keystone cops! *smh It's gotten so ridiculous! There is absolutely NO accountability!

  8. Mia Love says:

    " Supreme Court has held that the officer has no right (to arrest a Citizen) unless certain procedures (constitutional protections) are adhered to…Where the officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. What may be murder in the first case might be nothing more than manslaughter in the other, or the facts might show that no offense had been committed." John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529.

    John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529.
    "Common as the event may be, it is a serious thing to arrest a citizen, and it is a more serious thing to search his person; and he who accomplishes it, must do so in conformity to the law of the land. There are two reasons for this; one to avoid bloodshed, and the other to preserve the liberty of the citizen. Obedience to the law is the bond of society, and the officers set to enforce the law are not exempt from its mandates.") see also: Allen v. State, 197 N.W. 808, 810-11 (Wis 1924).

    "An illegal arrest is an assault & battery. The person so attempted to be restrained of his liberty has the same right to use force in defending himself as he would in repelling any other assault & battery." State v. Robinson, 145 ME. 77, 72 ATL. 260.

    Runyan v. State, 57 Ind. 80;
    "When a person, being without fault, is in a place where he has a right to be, is violently assaulted, he may, without retreating, repel by force, and, if in the reasonable exercise of his right of self defense, his assailant is killed, he is justified.". see also: Miller v. State, 74 Ind. 1

    Housh v. People, 75 111. 491
    "An arrest made with a defective warrant, or one issued without affidavit, or one that fails to allege a crime is within jurisdiction, and one who is being arrested, may resist arrest and break away. lf the arresting officer is killed by one who is so resisting, the killing will be no more than an involuntary manslaughter." ; reaffirmed & quoted in State v. Leach, 7 Conn. 452; State v. Gleason, 32 Kan. 245; Ballard v. State, 43 Ohio 349; State v Rousseau, 241 P. 2d 447; State v. Spaulding, 34 Minn. 3621.

    Adams v. State, 121 Ga. 16, 48 S.E. 910
    "One may come to the aid of another being unlawfully arrested, just as he may where one is being assaulted, molested, raped or kidnapped. Thus it is not an offense to liberate one from the unlawful custody of an officer, even though he may have submitted to such custody, without resistance."

    Jones v. State, 26 Tex. App. I
    These principles apply as well to an officer attempting to make an arrest, who abuses his authority & transcends the bounds thereof by the use of unnecessary force and violence, as they do to a private individual who unlawfully uses such force & violence." ; see also Beaverts v. State, 4 Tex. App. 1 75; Skidmore v. State, 43 Tex. 93, 903.

    State v. Mobley, 240 N.C. 476, 83 S.E. 2d 100.
    Each person has the right to resist an unlawful arrest. In such a case, the person attempting the arrest stands in the position of a wrongdoer and may be resisted by the use of force, as in self-defense."

    Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306.
    "Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer's life if necessary." This premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in this case:
    "Story affirmed the right of self-defense by persons held illegally. In his own writings, he had admitted that a situation could arise in which the checks-&-balances principle ceased to work & the various branches of government concurred in a gross usurpation.' There would be no usual remedy by changing the law or passing an amendment to the Constitution, should the oppressed party be a minority. Story concluded, If there be any remedy at all… it is a remedy never provided for by human institutions.' That was the ultimate right of all human beings in extreme cases to resist oppression, and to apply force against ruinous injustice.'" (From “Mutiny on the Amistad” by Howard Jones, Oxford Univ. Press, 1987, an account of the reading of the decision in the case by Justice Joseph Story of the Supreme Court.

    "The carrying of arms in a quiet, peaceable, & orderly manner, concealed on or about the person, is not a breach of the peace. Nor does such an act of itself, lead to a breach of the peace." Judy v. Lashley, 5 W. Va. 628, 41 S.E. 197

    "It is the law that a person illegally arrested by an officer may resist that arrest, even to the extent of the taking of life, if his own life or any great bodily harm is threatened. State v. Rousseau, 40 Wash. 2nd, 92, 241 P. 2nd. 447, 449 (1952) see also: Porter v. State, 124 Ga. 297, 52 S.E. 283, 287 (1905); see also State v.

  10. Etheleen Lawrence says:

    Tony Roper: Those cops wouldn't have done that if that was a white woman and her children, and this you know, so stop it with the stupid scenarios.

  11. Rosalind Coleman says:

    On what planet are tan and burgundy the same color?

  12. Thee Essence says:

    I never got the memo that tan and burgundy were the same colors. Yea, that memo never came in the mail. Please, resend it.

  13. Gary Burch says:

    he is white .he runs global grind.

  14. Gary Burch says:

    the supreme court just okayed it

  15. Gary Burch says:

    you did see the cops were not near the car…more then one cop…and tan is not burgundy…this cop saw black faces and said "THAT ONE"

  16. Mia Love says:

    Gary Burch If you look at his facial features, he is of African decent. He is passing and was raised to think hes white, at best!

  17. Mia Love says:

    Gary Burch what did they just do?

  18. These are all white man's laws. Freedom or Death!

  19. Mia Love says:

    Cecil Max-George These are not laws. These are cases which the supreme court ruled. These bullshit de facto courts are only administrative. See that's one of the major issue with our people . They don't study the law and I don't mean codes and statues. How do you think Tupac wasn't charged when he shot that officer back in the day. Unlawful arrest! do your own research, don't take my word for it!

  20. Marlene WiijiMakwag Bradshaw says:

    Small town, I'm a single mother, Native American white skinned. The police didn't like my daughters ex boyfriend, that pulled her over 2 to 3 times a week, for no reason other then to harrass her, She was only 16 years old, graduated, didn't drink, didn't do drugs. the one day they pulled her over 3 times in one day. She called me crying hysterically at work. Then when she was waiting on her friend, she was in her car, the pulled her over, took her out of her car 3 squad cars searched her car and found nothing. I told the Cheif of Police this harrassment better stop. Then when I decided to fight a curfew ticket, he told us straight out, that she was being pulled over because they had it on good "advice" that she gave her ex boyfriend a ride out of town, so they knew he wasnt in town but continured to harrass her. Then they started on my other children, all while I was at work. I don't drink, do drugs, I did nothing but as a single Mom work to support my family. T pay their wages so they could harrass my family while I was at work. I was even driving my daughters car one day and was pulled over, for no reason. They just saw a blonde driving her car. I asked what I did. I was following behind him, because were out in her car taking her graduation pictures and back tracking to where I might have lost my car keys. They shot out dog after finally got to be in front of the Judge and tell him what was happening. One police Officer was looking for another job, not sure if that was due to my telling the Judge that he pulled my 14 year old daughter out of a car with her friend and asked them if they were lesbians. He was working with the grade school kids. I don't trust police, I don't trust the prosecuters that protect the police and lie right alone with them. I don't trust anyone. I did however and still do trust that Judge.

  21. Gary Burch says:

    Mia he is italian born and bred…now if you want you can argue about his lineage…but he already wrote a whole article about his whiteness..goggle is your friend

  22. Mia Love says:

    Gary Burch I don't doubt he is Italian, my mother side is Italian as well an i can tell you from both experience and history, he is an African descendant.

  23. The white person in this conversation made a statement. He said 59% need to understand what are they contributing. I would say to the 59% if you are not speaking out against racial injustice then you are supporting it.

  24. Farntella Graham says:

    Gary Burch LIAR

  25. Gary Burch says:

    Mia Love we all are.he self i dentifies as white…he feels he is,then he is

  26. Gary Burch says:

    Farntella Graham and your apology sista is excepted

  27. Farntella Graham says:

    Gary Burch we are talking about liability insurance for cops. I know about the supreme court decision yesterday. sorry if I misunderstood your comment.

  28. Gary Burch says:

    Farntella Graham ii was addressing the comment of "she was detained unlawfully! She has a case" that's all…i do not fighting with my people..as i said it is forgiven and we move forward.i have no ill will towards ya

  29. Farntella Graham says:

    Gary Burch thank you. we are more united than they want us to be.

  30. Gary Burch says:

    Farntella Graham Always will be,you stay strong…and pretty

  31. Parris Lane says:

    I have to share this with you, because this actually happened to me. I was with a white friend and we were looking for a parking spot at the grocery store. Giants, Greenbelt, MD to be exact. I bent down to put my shoes on and seconds later we were surrounded by guns. We were made to get out of the car with our hands up. I was furious because when I finally got an answer to why we were pulled over, the cop said because he saw me bending down in the car and I look dangerous. He said that "he thought that I was someone that could hurt him." I stated, that I was going to report them to the Governor's office, because at that time I was a staff member of the Executive Department. I called the PD in Greenbelt to make a complaint, however they just brushed me off. Some of you will NEVER EVER have to live this experience. But this my friend is what it's like to wear Black Skin. You can rationalize and find excuses saying that folks are thugs and/or criminals just because of the way they looked. But I do know one thing that came out good in the situation. That same white male, my friend who believed strongly in the justice system, and capital punishment realized that not everyone with a gun up to their head by a police officer is a criminal. You are tired of hearing about race, WE ARE TIRED having to tell you about it.. Wake up and pay attention. Please everyone spread this around.. Thank GOD today some are made to have cameras not only on their bodies, but on their cars as well. Put the guns down… poor chid at 10 years old… coming out and representing…. "Hands Up- Don't Shoot." Welcome to our America.

  32. Parris Lane says:

    STOP RATIONALIZING THIS MADNESS Etheleen Lawrence Have you ever seen a white person go through this… I don't think so..This actually happened to me.

  33. Parris Lane says:

    Well at least they know who they were… This was a complete stranger and her family..

  34. Mia Love What is your point?! Are you kidding me? TUPAC IS DEAD!!!

  35. Mia Love says:

    I see most folks don't read everything and respond emotionally. Did you read in fully the original post Jerome Taylor? I don't think you did. My response was relevant to what was posted.

  36. Mia Love I read it already and know the law, so do a lot of people, however the cops don't give a damn about what you know as far as law goes! In fact, in most cases, guns are drawn when they are stopped in their cars! Has this happen to you, if not, then you don't know! Try quoting law statutes to a cop that has his weapon drawn and in your face! For the most part, people are traumatized when they are stopped these days, even for a minor traffic infraction! Do YOU really think, law enforcement cares what you know, hell they stop black lawyers too and preachers and businessmen! Your knowledge of the law is one thing, but you are dealing with an element that looks at the color of your skin and not the color of your car!! Black to the cops is the new code for danger to them!!

  37. This pisses me off.

  38. Mia Love Many Sicilian Italians are of African descent.

  39. Tragic indeed. But, someone might get the feeling that the purpose of this report is to convince people that the very light-skinned individual of clearly mixed ancestry who self-identified as "white" is truly a "white person" when in all likelihood he's not even fully accepted in the white community as such. One might conclude that they're trying to reverse what the "Obama Experience" has done by definitely making sure that it's understood that mixed people are legitimately regarded as "black".

  40. Olu Ekundayo says:

    The laws that enable such behavior must be changed. Just complaining, that a lion should stop eating deer, when they get a lot of reward for it, to the point their lives depend on it, will not change a thing.

  41. Leslie Jackson says:

    Crushed. When that baby got out of the car, all I saw was my son who is 8. The officers were dead wrong here and this a classic pretextual stop. " The only sin is in my skin/ What did I do/ To be so black and blue?"

  42. Jean Bolton says:

    Parris Lane – good post, but I don't believe you meant to address this to Etheleen Lawrence. She is on the same page – I think you meant to address your post to Tony Roper.

  43. Marlene WiijiMakwag Bradshaw says:

    Forgive my typos, I just keep typing and dont proof read.

  44. Will Benoit says:

    Yeah because the cop could see the woman was black through tinted windows at night. Yeah that's a reasonable assumption. The fact that you say this is an interaction because of race you are ignorant and deserve more education. If you believe this I really feel sorry for you.

  45. Marlene WiijiMakwag Bradshaw says:

    Parris Lane Honesty, they had no idea who I was. I was working 40-50-60 hours a week. They didnt get to know me til they started picking on my family. I pissed the Chief of police off when I told him I would bring a harrassment complaint against them. Then they tried to use the city to harrass me after my house started on fire and I had material for rebuilding in my yard. I told the city, your the ones I was forced to buy the buildng permit from, so you should KNOW, now its the mortgage company. Yeah I feel for that woman, but it was my poor kids all alone being treated like this.

  46. Mike Askew says:

    NO, I feel sorry for you, what crystal ball did you see tinted windows, in fact your looking at this and still not seeing what we are saying is sad. Can you honestly say that your Mother would have been treated in this manner?

  47. Mia Love says:

    Jerome Taylor I do know all about it! Been locked up on trumped charges and then some. I have way more experience than you can ever assume. I speak from experience only! Im not suggesting to quote law at gunpoint! That was a clearly illogical response you just gave. What im saying is it can be fought in court if you know what to do! She has a case! she was unlawfully arrested! If you know what an unlawful arrest is then you cant fight it. Also you can charge an officer in his private capacity (not official capacity) in a court of law as an assault! That's why these policy enforcers are getting away with murder cause they are filing charges under the cooperation in which they operate! I know what I know and you know what you know. Im here to help anyone that is willing to learn something they didn't know before. Stop trying to challenge me and ask a question instead saying what you know. I am for our people.

  48. Please know not all of us are condoning that behavior. I preach about it on my fb constantly and on other posts. You do have some of us with a brain and a heart out here.

  50. Imagine the possibility. Of what we could do as a community. If we banded together. Against all "weather." The storms we all feel. Could be squashed with the real. People who care. And those who dare. To fight against an inhumane system. And use God's wisdom. Of caring for those. Who are drowning in woes. To stand up and fight. For all those right. Any time of day. In a human way. A force to be reckoned with. Rather than pleading the fifth. Acting blind. To those denied being treated in kind. Just use your soul. To be in the know. You know what I'm saying. It's time to quit playing.

  52. "More From My Mind" (Not a poem. It's straight up truth).

    Black people are not allowed to be who they are. Who they are publicly is depicted by higher positions. If you are not black you usually won't hear this side of the story. My goal is to slowly get people to see the black perspective. Yes, I know I'm not black. However, I have done something most white people will not do. I chose to listen and not judge. I chose to study and not believe the lies. I chose to open my mind to a level most will not be willing to open their mind to because there is already so much BS going on in the world why add to what you know. I am tired of seeing only what is being presented. There are so many things unknown by most. In order to get people to understand, I have to get them to open up to seeing it from a black mind. It is very easy to do once you learn to actually LOVE black people and decide to learn them instead of what you perceive as truth. I just want who they are really understood. The hate has to stop. If you truly were to embrace the black community. You would be shocked. From what we are taught as white people. It is mostly bad. But, if you can move yourself past that. There is so much love in the black community. You have no idea what you are missing. Black people are deep, loving, caring, and extremely loyal people. They will die for who they love. They will have no fear in having your back. They are freaking awesome people. You just have to be willing to love them and let them know you are actually there for them. Saying, I have black friends, family, etc. don't mean nothing if your words and actions don't match. They aren't stupid they can tell when the love is genuine.

  54. "My Mind From the Inside".
    Trying to bring people together isn't easy when they have different views. Due to believing false news. Malicious rumors. Filling voids within hearts. Taking away abilities to make new starts. Making the mind almost explode. With hypocritical, hate taught codes. People not reaching out. Makes me want to shout. For an understanding. Worth reprimanding. It's time for a unified revolution. And time to quit waiting for a solution. Take a stance. Start the dance. Of making America see. How beautiful it can be. There's a lot at stake. For God's sake. Step up and make new ties. What you'll find may be a surprise. No one said it would be easy. But, to not step up, is just plain cheesy. Stupidity on all sides. Busting with maladjusted prides. Do an internal reflection. For a new kind of detection. To feel others minds. In all kinds of people. Quit being sheeple. Reach a high ground. For an awesome sound. Internally. Think of the possibilities. Stop fronting. Just step up and do something. ~ Author Me.

  56. IMPORTANT: You have to read this thoroughly for it to make sense. You have to actually use your mind to open up and let it in to see it. If you block it out, It will not make sense. It's easy to get my words twisted if you don't. This is a post I decided to make regarding many posts over the new Exodus movie to try and guide in understanding the posts that I saw. This is not to change black people minds.

    I'm sorry. I was reading through the comments initially just to look at opinions, like I usually do to learn from people. I can't keep my mouth shut no more because this is ridiculous. Why do black people always have to make it about them? To answer this you have to step out of your "white" mind and into a "black" mind. You can't do that you say. Oh, that's a dilemma. Let me tell you how to solve this. For a minute, please humor me. Let's pretend that we are doing a movie on the people that landed here on American soil. You with me so far? Okay. Now, let's say the movie shows these AA people landing on the American soil and colonizing and then slaughtering the Indians. Okay. You still with me? Now, Let's have these AA people bring over white slaves and the movie shows a whole documentary type movie on AA people treating white slaves the way they do throughout history. You following me? Now, Let's have your children watch this. Let's teach your children this is how it was. Let's teach your children how your people suffered because of those "pesky mean old AA slave holders." Now, your children will feel the pain of this knowledge. It will haunt them every time an AA makes a bad remark to them or judges them. By taking IMPORTANT characters in history and changing their color you are taking away a part of their history that they can be PROUD of. You are taking away their abilities to show their children what their people used to be. How in the hell can anyone expect a whole race of people to rise out of the state of mind they were forced into if they can't even claim where they come from without a big hissy fit about it being so wrong. Why do they make it about them? Because they are forced still to make it about them. Let them claim what was taken don't try and continually say they don't have a right. They have just as much right to their history as we do. They do not have to settle for their whole history as being a slave or someone pictured as dancing around in Africa naked (FYI I know this part is a not a proper depiction of African people. It is what the media makes us think all Africans are like.) If what I said here doesn't get through to you for what happens when you take something that important away from someone. Nothing will.

  57. Just Food For Thought: If Race Cards, Race Baiting, Race anything upsets you do NOT read this post. It may make you mad and make you think I am trying to excuse any recent behaviors seen in the media. I'm not. People that know me know that ain't what drives me.

    You have to step back from your "white" vision of it and look at it from the outside. AA have not been out of slavery that long. Yes, because of our age it seems like it has been. However, you have to look at the facts. I'm going to line them up for you. 1. White people changed the bible and doing that they outwardly show even now (because you don't see black Jesuses popping up all over) that they can't even stand to be honest about what color even Jesus is. 2. Rich White people (government) who were originally in the US wanted to look like they were saviors to their colonies, so they got "the bright idea" to get slaves shipped over here to reduce the workload on their people instead of them doing the work their damn selves. 3. When they brought them over (black and white irish slaves), they had to convince the colonies that what they were doing was right. How did they do that? They taught that they were property. No different than the cattle that you slaughter or use to til the land. 4. When the civil war happened, them rich people didn't like that because they lost their free labor that they were getting paid for. They made it even harder on black people by segregating stuff just to maintain the illusion that they were still worthless even though they were free. 5. Many of the people from that time period are just now recently dying or may be still alive. They taught their children this hatred. The black people know this hatred was still being taught. They see it in how they are treated. The crap gets passed down because of it being taught repeatedly. 6. White people that are not raised to know this and are not taught to be racist sometimes end up racist because they see black people upset over it. It gets restarted this way too. 7. White people are able to live in their own perfect little bubble and do not have to be subjected to this side of our lives. Yes, we may have to put up with crap. We may have some unfair stuff happen, but it isn't the same. You are dealing with crap that would happen naturally even if racism never existed. They are dealing with crap that would happen without racism and with racism. Yes, there are black racists too. This does not negate the fact that on a wide scale black people deal with more crap due to what has been passed down. (Do NOT think I mean all whites or all blacks in any of my referencing. It was to make general points.) 3D Na' Tee "Who Can We Run To" Powerful video: Warning of nudity.

  59. America: In a Nutshell.
    People claiming to escape from tyrannical rule finding a land they want to claim in order to start over. Finding out there are indigenous people on the land they want to claim. Using weapons that these indigenous people do not have against them in order to impose the same tyrannical rule over them that they claimed to be running from. They force these people into small places that may as well be considered concentration camps because they lack the power to sustain their previous life. The new people start colonizing and taking over this land that they infiltrated and start teaching their children all of these stories on how their country is getting built from the ground up and how their leaders are oh so awesome in this achievement invoking patriotism for them to pass on. Meanwhile, ignoring and misguiding them as to the horror stories that led to their success dumbing it down to sound more heroic. The colonies are growing and they have to produce more resources to maintain life. The people in power find ways to "import livestock" (slaves Irish then African American) to help with sustaining their needs to lower the workload on the colonists and make those in power appear to be the glorified thinkers who come up with a way to make life easier. They become accustomed to this way of life and treat the people they believe are lesser than them in horrible ways. Certain people that aren't in the ranks of slaves disagreed with how these people who are supposed to be lesser than them are getting treated. They start secretly teaching them how to read and write and how to think based off of ways that are different from where they originated from. As these efforts secretly grew and these people who were valued as lesser than human starting realizing that they should not be treated this way and realizing that it couldn't go on. A ripple effect started happening across the land towards a new mentality, but those who loved feeling superior despised this new growing trend and tried to stop it. In the end humanity won out and the people were freed. They were left with what? A battle to be seen on equal footing even though they were free. Who was hurt by this new integration status? Rich ex-slave owners who no longer had free labor to do their work for which they were used to getting paid for. Who has power to pull government strings? People with financial power. Since this is face book I can't do a whole book here, but if you care more about my opinion or you disagree and want to give me sources to "correct" my thinking if you believe I'm wrong have at it. I will listen to other views since it's my favorite pass time. My point is this is what has led up to what we deal with today and is still what we are dealing with. Rich people who are able to pull government strings and we are their money making slaves. All of us.

  66. Gary Orlando Mason Yeah it leads up to other things. It's a refresher. There is a method to my madness. I swear. 🙂 It's all on my fb too. In different posts.

  67. Gary Orlando Mason says:

    Absolutely. I'm all for setting a foundation in order to convey a message

  68. Gary Orlando Mason says:

    Amazing commentary Ms. Caddell. I can honestly and sadly say I have never met any person outside of the Black community that has actually made a serious effort to understand the machinations of this country and how it's been constructed.

  69. Thank you. I put everything I had into that. When done in order, it has the biggest effect.

  70. I also thanked you on fb for reading it not sure if you got the message.

  75. Asante Collins says:

    What A Brave Little Boy! You can tell how much she loves her children and how they love their mom.Why did they handcuff her and take her out of the sight camera. I believe that there are Alot of good officers respectful fair compassionate men and women who will go beyond and above to help people will be promoted while many many many cops , judges, wardens, mayors, etc. . Are going to prison. Some will be on death row. Their pensions will go to the families of the lives they have destoyed. It's shameful to realize that brutality exist against people right under our noses. It scares me to think what they would've done to the mom hadn't the child came forth. Or what they would have done to the children and mother had they been more secluded. Those poor children. Brave mom.

  76. you shouldn't talk like that online bro. it never goes away.

    Will Ewing Sr Thank you very much for taking the time to read it. Thanks for your input. It is highly respected.

  80. Dylan Cabral Stevens says:

    Will Ewing Sr And it should. Dialogue is exactly what is needed. Everyone should be able to look, and see us talking, and be able to rally around our speech. I'm so tired of silence. The silence of my white friends, colleagues, and peers. The silence, of my fellow black people. The silence of other people of color. The silence of other human being watching lives of their brothers and sisters be shaken and torn and snuffed out.

    That silence weighs upon me more heavily than any burden that has ground down my shoulders before, and I am tired of carrying it. Aren't you?

    Let's kill that silence… All of us. Let us speak in public forum, raise our vices, together, loud, strong, knowledgeable, emotional, heart-wrenching, and mountain shaking until we are a deafening force that can no longer be ignored. I want all of us to throw down that burden. I don't want to have my ears filled with silence any longer. So I will speak, and urge others to speak, until I cannot draw breath, or we have been heard in every corner of this earth.

  81. Nikki Brooks says:

    Dylan Cabral Stevens Not all of us are silent. I do my best to get how I feel out there by sending messages like those I posted on this page. I post it as much as I can and teach it in real life off of the computer.

    Farntella, New York city settled police brutality cases last year to the tune of over 11 million dollars. If that money came out of police retirement funds instead of the pockets of citizens, the good cops would start turning in the bad ones!

    The correct terms must be used or they will continue trivialising the modern black experience. The correct term is 'Terrorism.'

  84. Ajani Fida says:

    Whites show their true colors when you ask 3 questioms.
    1. Do you acknowledge White supremacy exists and are you willing to denounce it?
    2. Do you support Black consciousness and empowerment?
    3. Across cultures, darker people suffer most. Why?
