Because black people happened to teach me about America more than my life ever could.
I’m a black cop. On the scene of a shooting one night. Using a flashlight to look for bullet casings between houses to collect as evidence. Dispatch gets a call of a suspicious looking black male in “police clothes” using a flashlight to “look into peoples houses” #LivingWhileBlack
Obama (2012) sits alone in a classroom after meeting for hours with parents of Sandy Hook victims. Trump (2018) sits at a disco party he threw at his private night club after spending 14 minutes with victims at the hospital in Parkland.
If every black adult male in the U.S. bought & registered a semi-automatic rifle tomorrow, Congress would pass gun control laws by Friday.
How many school shootings will it take for laws to change? Just one. A black student shooting white kids.
This country was constitutional carry right up until emancipation. When black people fought for their liberation, then comes the gun control rules.
Y’all want teachers to effectively prepare our youth, carry straps, and bust back at school shooters but at the same time only pay them $40,000 a year.
“That black kid was acting aggressive and belligerent and i feared for my life so I had to shoot them.”
All this talk of arming teachers is a reminder to what happened to one employee of the Saint Paul (MN) Public School System who had a concealed carry permit.
RIP Philando Castille
us: better gun control
gov: this is a mental health issue us: better mental health care gov:
*two mass shootings later*
gov: hey sorry i was in the shower
Not even the wildest of hood niggas ever shot up a school .
Explain to me how a school shooter who just murdered 17 innocent kids is apprehended without a single shot being fired but a black father holding a cellphone in his own backyard is murdered in cold blood?
Flint: We need clean water. Houston: We need help recovering Puerto Rico: We need electricity.
Trump: Tell Steph he can’t come to the crib.
White people be calling the police on black people like it’s customer service at whole foods. It’s not customer service, it’s attempted murder.
WHAT WE SAID: We need common sense gun laws.
WHAT YOU HEARD: Take away y all the guns, melt them & make a statue of an NFL player kneeling.
“hOw CaN YoU tAlK aBoUt GuN CoNtRoL wHeN yOu’Ve NeVeT FiReD a GuN” how ya’ll anti gay and you’ve never sucked cock
Evidence collected over many years, obtained from many locations, indicates that the power of Prayer is insufficient to stop bullets from killing school children
2018 is watching children live tweet shootings while other kids who’ve survived school shootings talk them through it
You know, when I said I wanted the real world to be more like Harry Potter I just meant the teleportation and the magic stuff, not the entire plot of book 5 where the government refuses to do anything about a deadly threat so the teenagers have to rise up and fight back
Young people have helped lead all our great movements. How inspiring to see it again in so many smart, fearless students standing up for their right to be safe; marching and organizing to remake the world as it should be. We’ve been waiting for you. And we’ve got your backs.
The sun never went out when Obama was president, is all I’m saying.
