🧵I know it isnt enough to tweet but in honor of the Black men & boys killed by police in recent years. Let's reflect & say some of their names. Numbers have always been high. They deserve justice. Thread on female victims to come soon.
#SayHisName #BlackLivesMatter #sayhername https://twitter.com/ISASaxonists/status/1387438716608819204
I almost quit this project bc seeing the faces of these men, reading the stories of their lives and families and realizing how unjust and cruel this world is was weighing on me. But I think we need this catalogue. It’s not comprehensive, and I know I have missed
many names and faces but I’m hoping this small catalogue can serve as a reminder of how systemic racism works. Also not every case makes the news.
I also found so many cases in Canada, Australian, the UK &beyond. Police brutality is a world wide cancer, &this does not even touch
on the Indigenous folk who are targeted in similar ways.
If I were to list all the names and faces of those killed by on-duty officers in LA county alone from 2013, this list would be over 500 tweets long.
We've been saturated with images of Black men & boys depicted as scary thugs. I want us all to see these all these Black men & boys as people. That’s what they were. This is a catalogue showing who they were. These men did not deserve to killed at the hands of cops.
Think of these men’s last moments. Think of injustice. Think of racial profiling. Think of those you've outlived. Think of their families & their feelings of loss. Work towards changing the system. Speak up against police brutality.
This project was overwhelming. I need a break from this but will return at some point with a catalogue highlighting women who we have lost. Song by Ajay Stephens - Memories. Have a listen before you begin the list. #sayhisname
