Racial bias in America: from higher suspension rates in preschool, to disproportionate rates of capital punishment, to everything in between, structures of authority routinely allow anti-Black racial bias to color the “facts”, and warp the narrative. And frequently (whether unintentional or otherwise) the police and the media often work together to further criminalize innocent Black victims
1. Criminalizing Blackness in America
2. 14-year-old Tremaine McMillian attacked and choked by police, literally while holding a puppy…because McMillian made them “feel threatened” and gave them “dehumanizing stares”
3. Author and CNN contributor keithboykin: how the AP slandered Renisha McBride even in death
4. The Associated Press: when can skin color alone determine who is and who isn’t a looter? (hint: don’t be Black)
This implicit racial bias does not magically stop at innocuous events like the VMAs, or in Hollywood. So far, it doesn’t ever turn off. There are two Americas and racial bias is as ubiquitous as the air we breathe
My trip to Florida was wonderful. It’s such a beautiful state. & Flying is pretty awesome. I like that better then any other public transportation.
I am actually contemplating on living down there now.
Fort Myers is less then 3 hrs away from Miami. My modeling would be great out there. Plus, I’d be closer to a dear friend of mine who needs my support so why not?
I think it’s time I take a spontaneous leap out into the world. I’m tired of holding back.
I forgot how much Adele’s 21 album put me in my feelings
