If you ever see me tweeting normally whenever a black person is extrajudicially murdered by those that are sworn to protect, please remember that I am black, I am tired, I am scared, and I am traumatized and I don't want to talk about it

Last year police let underage Kyle Rittenhouse murder innocent people and go to a bar later while on probation. You will never convince me that black death is justified.

👀 Pay close attention to how news media is now flooded with Black people representing law enforcement and speaking in favor of reforms we already know don’t work. Policing remains an overwhelmingly white institution. This is a deliberate editorial choice to distort reality.

Why is the question always: “who will you call in times of danger?” and not: “How is it that we spend billions of dollars funding police forces that are armed to the nines & yet millions of people still don’t feel safe & instead fear the police as much as anything?”

*whispers* Pels, just cause someone is a "starter" doesn't have to mean they're a "closer." Just saying.

My latest book is being placed on some store shelves under "anti-racism." It doesn't cover critical race theory, like many do. I just happen to be a Black woman who wrote a book. Don't have folks picking it up thinking they're getting a class on race when my book is about fear.

You really want me to believe that Duante Wright is dead because an officer, who allegedly summons her weapons like they're Pokémon, can't tell the difference between a gun and a taser? https://t.co/F69g8akRaM

Brooklyn Center Police Chief Gannon just showed video of shooting and states afterwards: The officer yelled “taser, taser” allegedly intending to pull and deploy his taser but pulled his gun instead, fatally shooting 20 year old #DaunteWright . My God.

Nope. We heard this tired excuse when Oscar Grant was killed over 10 yrs ago. If you are mistaking a gun for a taser maybe you shouldn't be allowed to use either. Isn't that part of the training? https://t.co/U2aFfeHDDU

Brooklyn Center Police Chief says the officer drew her gun instead of the taser. He says the officer meant to deploy her taser. Calls it an accidental discharge.

This is #DaunteWright and his son Duante Wright Jr. Earlier today Duante Sr. was shot to death during a traffic stop reportedly about an air freshener obstructing a mirror. He was 20 years old and killed by a Brooklyn Center Police Officer in MN. He was unarmed. https://t.co/p3VOOiaLK8
