Framing the issue is a constant, but to offer solutions, resolutions, a panacea of sorts, is what's always missing, as in the case below.



...

As Black Americans, we are kept in the dark and only see what the media want us to see. I will address this later in this post.
...
....
During the last two weeks in July 2015, 5 Black American women died while in police jails but, it was hush hush.

WHY ARE BLACK WOMEN MURDERED IN JAIL?

When a black american male is "lynched", we see the actual lynching on video over and over until we become desensitized or america becomes desensitized and write it off as just another criminal. This have a dual affect. One affect in the mind of white america and one affect on black america.

Take Trayvon Martin for instance. The jury couldn't identify with a black child because of "perception management".

Okay, black American women are lynched off camera, out of public view for a specific reason. Before we invaded Iraq, the propaganda machine showed Iraqi women wailing. Before we went into Lybia, the propaganda machine tuned into a lybian woman accusing the military of rape.

During the civil rights movement, nobody was disturbed when black men were beat, battered and bitten by dogs but, when the camera caught black women being trampled by horses, beaten unconscious and bloodied on the Pettis Bridge, America's conscience was stirred.

Then all hell broke loose when the camera showed black women being bitten on their breast and legs by dogs. That grabbed the Americans conscience by the throat until it made america sick.

That is why they lynch black women in the privacy of a jail cell.

OPERATION MOCKINGBIRD

if you want to see what we as black Americans are facing, research the above.

#SayHerName #SymoneMarshall


Dear Clyde,

This week, we learned that yet another Black woman, Symone Marshall, died while in custody at a Texas jail. In a case disturbingly similar to those of Sandra Bland and Gynnya McMillen, Symone died from a lack of medical attention after she was taken to jail rather than a hospital after a terrible car accident.1 ...



Please tell the Department of Justice to investigate the deaths of Black women, girls and trans women in the criminal justice system.

Sincerely,

Arisha, Rashad, Scott, Enchanta and the rest of the team at ColorOfChange.org

Former guard admits he didn't check on Sandra Bland before she died, lawyer says


A former guard at the Waller County Jail told the attorney of Sandra Bland's mother under oath that he falsified entries on a jail log, making it appear as though he had checked on Bland in the hour before she was found dead, when he had not.

According to a report from the Houston Chronicle, a source familiar with the state's investigation of Bland's death confirmed prosecutors were aware of the falsified records, but a Waller County grand jury decided not to indict anyone with the sheriff's office ...

Officer says prosecutors silenced him in Sandra Bland case


... Among the things Prairie View officer Michael Kelley said this week that he wanted to tell a grand jury: Bland appeared to have marks on her forehead after a confrontation with state trooper Brian Encinia, who pulled her over last July for allegedly failing to signal while changing a lane; Encinia was on the phone with a supervisor after arresting her because he didn't know what charge she should face; and the police report Encinia ultimately submitted left out key details ...

Say her name, Korryn Gaines, 23.


Korryn Gaines is the ninth black woman shot and killed by police this year


... According to police, no one responded to 10 minutes of door knocking, even though they could hear several people inside. When officers obtained a key to the apartment, they found Gaines sitting on the floor — her 5-year-old son was wrapped in one of her arms. In her other hand was a shotgun.

Around 3 p.m., after several hours of negotiation, police say Gaines raised the gun at officers and told them that she would kill them if they did not leave. The officers opened fire ...

Three officers with the Baltimore County police arrived at Korryn Gaines’s apartment around 9:20 a.m. on Monday to serve warrants to her as well as a man who also resided there.

The Deafening Silence Around Police Violence Against Black Women And Girls


Cara McClellan

HuffPost


... This disparity is part of a larger, startling pattern of violence against black women being overlooked when it comes to police brutality targeting black people. We must remember that the racial biases in policing that lead to black men being victims of violence also apply to black women, even though their stories are less visible, Black women bear a double burden ― carrying the weight of a weaponized skin color and the invisibility of a silenced gender.

Feeling good today fam...just been reading a couple of books. I think Dennis Kimbro's "Daily Motivations for African American Success" is one of the best motivational books on the market. This book has motivation for each day of the year on each page and all of these relate to your own Blackness. No matter what you're experiencing there's something in that book you could draw from. ✊
