In New York City, 123 people have been killed by law enforcement officials since Sean Bell was slain in 2006.
These are just some of the lives that were stopped short due to police encounters. Look at their faces. Read their stories. Know their names. This is just the tip of the iceberg that is police brutality. Even though their lives were taken from us, do not allow them to be forgotten.

"Black People hate white people for WHAT THEY DO. White people hate Black People for WHO WE ARE. That’s the difference. That is why Keke is wrong. When we hate, we’re hating the violence done unto to us. When we hate, we’re hating the system that allows for corrupt terrorists to hold more power, over an disenfranchised group. When we hate, we’re hating how our culture is mocked, and dehumanized but is then stolen and sold to us for a fee while being told we’re beneath the very culture we created. When we hate, it’s cause our Blackness is viewed as an inherent difference that is negative, and evil. Black hate is the result of white hatred. Hate Doesn’t Breed More Hate, one hate (white hate) caused and continues to cause violence, and dehumanization against a group of people. The other is logical, and emotional conditioning formed out of centuries, and present day reinforcement of Black oppression. -bitteroreo"
