JUSTICE FOR MUHAMMAD MUHAYMIN JR. - SHARE THIS & SIGN PETITION 🚨
Muhammad Muhaymin Jr. died in the custody of Phoenix police on January 4, 2017.
Police officers detained Muhaymin after 9-1-1 was called by community center when he tried to bring his emotional support dog to the bathroom. Officers knelt on his neck, leaving him no room to breath.
He was unarmed, and did not resist arrest. The officers involved in the case are still in the force.
Bring justice to #MuhammadMuhaymin .

@doc.iggy is an orthopaedic surgeon in Dallas. He says that “walking around the hospital, I feel like there’s a camera on my back at all times. I always wonder what they’d think of me in normal clothes.” What do you see when you look at these two photos of him—the same person in different clothes? #ShowUp ...
The @nba and players agreed on 29 social justice messages that will replace the players' names on the back of jerseys for the first four days when play resumes on July 30 at @waltdisneyworld Resort. Players are not required to choose a message to wear.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The messages include phrases like "Black Lives Matter," "Say Their Names," "Vote," "Equality," "Freedom," "Sí Se Puede" (Yes We Can), and "I Can't Breathe."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After those initial four days, names will return to the jerseys, but players will be able to opt to keep the message, and place their name below the number.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In a statement, the NBA said, "A central goal of our season restart will be to utilize the NBA's platform to bring attention and sustained action to issues of social injustice, including combating systemic racism, expanding educational and economic opportunities across the Black community."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s not easy for most people to hear feedback/criticism, but it’s especially challenging when you’re white and it’s about race and racism. No matter how far along on the path to antiracism we are, emotions come UP—that’s unavoidable. But what is avoidable is how they come OUT, especially toward the person who has been gracious enough to give you feedback so you can do better. In our comments, we have been seeing a lot of emotions coming OUT toward people who are simply bringing up a differing perspective to consider and reflect on. We ask that if you are here with us, that you consider any feedback humbly and seriously, reflect on it, and if you have emotions about it, think about why you might be having those emotions. @thewildsister wrote a little something that may help.
