STATE OF THE BLACK UNION

The Shadow of Crisis has NOT Passed
2014 was a year that saw profound injustice, and extraordinary resilience. Homicides at the hands of police sparked massive protests, meaning that America could no longer ignore bitter truths of the Black experience.

Among many, Gabriella Naverez, a queer Black woman was killed at 22 years old, unarmed. 37 year old Tanisha Anderson’s family dialed 911 for medical assistance. Instead, Cleveland police officers took her life.  Anyia Parker, a Black trans woman was gunned down in East Hollywood. This brutal attack was caught on camera, yet her murder, like so many murders of Black trans women, have gone unanswered.

This country must abandon the lie that the deep psychological wounds of slavery, racism and structural oppression are figments of the Black imagination. The time to address these wounds is now.

The movement was co-founded by three black activists: Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi.

BLM

Black Lives Matter is an American activist grassroots movement that can be traced back to the July 2013 acquittal of George Zimmerman in the Florida shooting death of African-American teen Trayvon Martin.

It received fresh impetus from the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown, an African-American teen, and the death of Eric Garner, as well as the acquittals of both of the officers who killed them. The Black Lives Matter movement also speaks out and organizes against police brutality against African-Americans in the United States.

Some of the unarmed African-Americans who died at the hands of law enforcement have had their deaths protested by the movement, including Tamir Rice, Eric Harris, Walter Scott, and Freddie Gray (whose death sparked the 2015 Baltimore protests).

  1. Strongly disagree with the first image I am sorry. I can make the same comparison with #BlackLivesMatter. If black lives mattered we would stop treating them as second grade people and stop shooting them because “we think blablablayayddayaddayadda”

    ALL…….LIVES………MATTER opposing that only shows the maker of the image is exactly the same as the people he opposes

    still love ya hun 🙂 You know how I see it but for others here that might see it in a wrong way…. I am not opposed to #BlackLivesMatter, in fact if anything I fully agree with that statement, I am against using discrimination and/or racism to fight discrimination and/or racism

    • I still love you too, dear bro … and I also agree! The point here in the USA is, that before all lives can matter, they have to fix the black lives too. What’s happened is that the movement that was started by the blacks has been hijacked by the others.
      I agree all lives matter …. yet, the black lives have been oppressed for so long that the spotlight is shinning on them now. That’s how I see it …. hugs!! ❤
