Why The Theme of Injustice Isn’t a Trend or a Glitch in the System
As 2018 winds down, I have to recall the events that gave me the incentive to draw attention to the dysfunctional mechanisms, that allow us to normalize the reality of how unarmed Black women can be violently tossed around like rag dolls in public spaces by thugs-in-uniform; without protests by the #MeToo or Time’s Up initiatives.
Unarmed Black men with mental illnesses can be Tasered to death after a simple traffic violation, and Black children are still threatened by the abusive devices of White cops who police high schoolers into near death scenarios.
The years never fail to amass Black victims — dead or alive, and while that sounds like a routine statement, there’s a sickening theme that won’t die.
And now that we’re accommodating the erratic appetite of a president who is the hero of White supremacy — the stakes are higher than high.
This reminder is all over the selection that depicts the fate of Black Lives that still Don’t Matter in the eyes of a biased system.
