Painful! Losing My Son To Police Violence by @KieseLaymon  “My son was executed by an ideal. That ideal says that he, and people like him, are not redeemable. Police kill people that they believe don’t deserve to live.”-Mama Woods#AbolitionForThePeople 

The Myth of the “Good Cop” by @NewBlackMan  “Copaganda - the reproduction and circulation in mainstream media of propaganda that is favorable to law enforcement - has long been a tool to disrupt legitimate claims of anti-Black violence.”

Police playing soldier by @stschrader1  “Police admire the military because it models what they want to be: an extremely well-resourced, technologically sophisticated, tactically effective, and widely respected instrument of state violence.”

Disability justice is essential to abolition by @talilalewis  “Abolitionist movements must contend with how disability and ableism interact with carceral systems, and be committed to abolishing all spaces to which marginalized people are disappeared.”

A powerful piece by @deanspade  on abolition and queer & trans resistance to the carceral state. “queer and trans people fight for abolition because we refuse to have our movement for liberation co-opted by law enforcement as a public relations strategy.”

I never thought I would be casting a young me in a show about my life. I can’t wait for the world to see @jvmichael  be an all-star on   @netflix  #ColinInBlackAndWhite  @ava

When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction. The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance. We have the right to fight back! Rest in Power George Floyd

I’m just getting word from my representatives that the NFL league office reached out to them about a workout in Atlanta on Saturday. I’ve been in shape and ready for this for 3 years, can’t wait to see the head coaches and GMs on Saturday.

Black ppl have been dehumanized, brutalized, criminalized + terrorized by America for centuries, & are expected to join your commemoration of “independence”, while you enslaved our ancestors. We reject your celebration of white supremacy & look forward to liberation for all. ✊🏾

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on. Winston S. Churchill

“What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? This Fourth of July is yours, not mine…There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.” - Frederick Douglass

Today marks the three year anniversary of the first time I protested systemic oppression. I continue to work and stand with the people in our fight for liberation, despite those who are trying to erase the movement! The movement has always lived with the people! ✊? ?: @REL
