African-American Girls & Women Killed By Police: Speak Their Names. See Their Faces. Know Their Stories.
There is this false myth going around that Black women are not victims of police violence. I believe the myth exists because quite frankly the media, social justice organizations and we the public tend not to focus on it. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy. I hope this post will make all of us change our minds. Here are the stories of some of the Black women and girls killed by law enforcement:

Avoiding self-sabotage is so strange and difficult.
It’s like I can’t face my fear of failure so i’d rather pretend what I want/need doesn’t exist.
I find myself most introspective at the times when I cannot be distracted like when I’m at work or driving or trying to sleep.
intense and seemingly random personal stuff
#INSTEADOFTALKING 003, 2014
I’ve played so much “crazy taxi” on the dreamcast that I have the title screen song “all I want” by the offspring memorized
Just reminiscing, sometimes if u play magic the gathering suddenly every non player onlooker becomes an economic philosopher
“Why do u care so much, its just pieces of cardboard” one kid said in 8th grade, when I frequented the particular nerd group known as “the magic table”
I think there were other nerd groups but all nerds at my middle school made a stop there at some point
And in college when my friend and I were playing his brother and dad started talking about how it was a waste of money and about the nature of collecting
I said nothing but,my friend felt the need to defend how he plays and that when he does it it’s not a waste of money
I was just thinking “fuck off, no one needs to justify their hobbies”
