Good morning Fam:

I’m so sorry to hit you with horrific news so early in the morning, and on a Saturday no less, but this is too egregious to ignore.

The police officer who raped EIGHT BLACK WOMEN is free on bond today.

The question that is burning a whole in my mind is: WHY WAS THERE BOND IN THE FIRST PLACE?

This man is a CLEAR menace to society. He is CLEARLY a danger to black women.

And yet—the judge REDUCED his bond from $5 million to $500,000 even though the prosecutor argued how much of a lit stick of dynamite this man is JUST so this shit puddle can go free.

This is irrefutable proof of how white supremacy operates when it has perceived that one of its own is evil and might be held accountable for that evil. All sense it thrown out of the window and innocence, which is to say Whiteness, circles in on itself.

This is proof how little the suffering of black women matters in this country.

If nothing else this year deserves a march, we need to march to have the judge on this case removed from the bench and have this rapist’s (and possible murderer) bond revoked.

"i see you"

1. when a black person has deducted the reasoning behind your scheme

2. when a black person rationalizes your reasoning. 

3. When a black person wants you to know that they’re impressed by your.. Style, job, car you drive, project you’re working on, etc, etc
