- when men are characters but women are symbols
A boy in my grade who used to go to my school died today. I can’t believe it. I had the biggest crush on him in 7th grade and now he’s gone.
in case anyone was considering buying a shirt with that image, the man in the photo is requesting that people dont buy it
see people are already starting to aestheticize black people fighting for their lives and humanity to make a profit (that doesn’t even help said marginalized people..) like ??????
Can we as a society please push for legislation to require all police officers to wear a camera on their uniform 100% of the time while they’re on duty, and add a clause stating that any officer accused of police brutality while not wearing their camera will be subject to immediate termination with no option to work in law enforcement at any capacity ever again? Can we please do that? Please?
