"Rep. John Lewis was 15 at the time, just one year older than Till. 'Emmett Till was my George Floyd,' he wrote in an op-ed published posthumously in the New York Times. 'He was my Rayshard Brooks, Sandra Bland, and Breonna Taylor.'" @cannoneyes @GENmag

George Floyd's murder is the only latest in an endless series of police killings. Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Laquan McDonald, Tamir Rice, Alton Sterling, Breonna Taylor, Freddie Gray, Rekia Boyd, Walter Scott—and so many, many others. The U.S. Senate has got to act now.
New footage from Sandra Bland’s phone was released, and now her family wants to reopen her case, saying investigators withheld evidence.

It would be very hard to imagine a white middle class woman being treated in the same way as Sandra Bland was.
Happy birthday Sandra Bland. We will uplift you always.
