okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

This is one of the most incredible things I have ever seen. @lavernecox is on the cover of Essence Magazine! The enormity of this in the Black Community!! She has been so brilliant and generous and graceful from rallies to the Emmy’s. She remains a tireless advocate for her sisters and her community and is changing our world for the better. Thank goddess for Laverne Cox! Also on the cover Alfre Woodard, Nicole Bahari & Dinai Gurira! #lavernehive

“It’s kind of heartbreaking because how do you explain to a five-year-old that he is being turned away because of what he believes in, because of his religion, because of what’s part of him. How do you explain that to him?”

TW: Violence: Today, May 30, is the day four years ago that little Brisenia Flores and her father were murdered in Arivaca, Arizona by racist Neo-Nazi anti-immigrant vigilantes. Brisenia was shot point blank in the face during the home invasion and her father was killed and mother shot.
We must not forget, ever, what hate rhetoric can do. Remind people and be vigilant about what anyone espousing hate against another group of people can do and lead to.
Today, have a thought about this beautiful little 9 year old, her family, and the community who lost so much through this death that no one wants to remember or at that time that Obama and the media never mentioned or had any ceremony for to symbolically stand against hate, racism, and xenophobia.
Today, in Arizona Mexican American Studies has been banned, books have been boxed up and sent out of schools, and the state of Arizona is under police seige against anyone who is brown. If you haven’t been there to witness it yourself don’t think it’s not happening because from personal experience it is.
No more of the conintuing 500 year long war of extinction upon Indigenous people. It must end! - Three Sonorans
Minutement group leader Shawna Forde & Jason Bush were found guilty on eight counts & are on death row for plotting the deadly home invasion. Albert Gaxiola was found guilty of the murders & sentenced to life without parole.
