“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.”
-Neil deGrasse Tyson



Honor your ability to think critically.
"In 1860, 99% of all black people worked for whites. Today, 98% of all black people work for whites. You are enjoying a social illusion because you go to someone else’s restaurant, but you don’t own a restaurant yourself."

A police officer in Georgia admits to kicking an African-American woman in the stomach while she was 9 months pregnant. No charges were filed against the officer.

Raven Dozier was 9 months pregnant when Dekalb County police officer Jared Wheeler kicked her in the stomach with his boots. She was forced to get a c-section. Thankfully, the baby survived. In an “internal investigation” Dekalb County police found that officer Wheeler did nothing wrong and followed police procedure.

And he’s completely unapologetic about it as well and no justice was served. People need to realize that police brutality is literally a daily reality for black people and that it affects black women as well.

What the fuck

how about we make it a more difficult process than checking a box to get away with illegal police brutality
