“I can’t breathe.
I have my ID right here. My name is Elijah McClain.
That’s my house. I was just going home.
I’m an introvert. I’m just different. That’s all.
I’m so sorry.
I have no gun. I don’t do that stuff. I don’t do any fighting. Why are you attacking me? I don’t even kill flies! I don’t eat meat! But I don’t judge people, I don’t judge people who do eat meat.
Forgive me.
All I was trying to do was become better. I will do it. I will do anything. Sacrifice my identity, I’ll do it. You all are phenomenal. You are beautiful and I love you.
Try to forgive me.
I’m a mood Gemini. I’m sorry.
I’m so sorry. Ow, that really hurt. You are all very strong. Teamwork makes the dream work.
(*crying*) Oh, I’m sorry I wasn’t trying to do that.
I just can’t breathe correctly.” - Elijah McClain’s last words at the hands of excessive, unnecessary police brutality in Aurora, CO. The cops were called because he looked “suspicious.” He was walking home and wearing a ski mask. Paramedics administered ketamine to try to subdue him. The officers were cleared of all wrong doing. Thanks to millions of signatures and thousands of calls, his case has recently been reopened. Keep doing the work folks. Keep saying their names. Reopening his case is a start but isn’t enough. 🖤 #justiceforElijahMcClain #arrestthecops #blacklivesmatter #peacefulprotest #saytheirnames #restinpower #thetimeisnow #ElijahMcClain @justiceforelijahmcclain.

Know their faces. Know their names. Make sure everybody else does as well.

Brett Hankison fired 10 shots into the apartment of Breonna Taylor. This was described as a “shocking” use of excessive force by the police chief. He was fired, but has not been charged or had his pension revoked.

Jon Mattingly & Myles Cosgrove fired an additional 15 combined bullets into Breonna’s apartment. They have not been fired are still police officers.

Joshua Jaynes filed the no-knock warrant that led to the murder of Breonna Taylor. This warrant contained lies + falsified information. He has not been fired and is still a police officer.

Daniel Cameron is the state attorney general. He has the power to arrest + charge the officers who murdered Breonna Taylor, but he has not done so because his campaigns were funded by police unions. He is not loyal to the people. He is loyal to the politicians who endorsed him: Donald Trump & Mitch McConnell.

Greg Fischer is the mayor of Louisville. He has the power to fire the officers, but has not done so. He blames this decision on a slow investigation by Cameron’s office.

These are murderers and the defenders of murderers. They should be known and identified as such.

Humbled and honored to visit the exact spot where it took 8:46 for this country to realize that hundreds of years of oppression and racism was a serious issue #ripgeorgefloyd #justiceforbreonnataylor #justiceforgeorgefloyd #blacklivesmatter #saytheirnames.

Why my shoulders are sexy: alternatively titled for Toyin. 

Toyin should not be remembered as a victim. She was beauty, she was an activist, she was confident, and she struggled. She embodies many black women and the obstacles we face. We remember Toyin for her bravert. We remember Toyin for her love. We remember her for her passion. This is for Toyin.
