After a tumultuous summer, it’s time to get back to normal.
As we mark Black History Month, let’s celebrate the people who have stood up and stood for what’s right, and the way forward for the black community in the United States.
This week, it was Black Lives Matter who dominated the headlines and inspired the conversation on all of these issues.
While the phrase “Black Lives Matters” is used to describe many issues and issues affecting African Americans, we believe it is most appropriate when applied to the issue of police violence.
Police brutality is an epidemic that disproportionately impacts African Americans.
And despite the fact that black Americans account for just 13% of the population, black people are six times more likely to be killed by police than white people, according to the Brennan Center for Justice.
Black Lives matters because it shows that the problem goes beyond the police, and it also shows that we have the power to change it.
Black Lives matter because it is time to let go of the false narrative that police brutality is a “white-only” problem, and to acknowledge that it is a problem affecting all people.
We need to get this conversation going and to start a national movement for change that starts with people like Michael Brown.
This is why Black Lives Matters is trending on Twitter: https://twitter.com/BLM_Media/status/90823391428583584 The hashtag #BlackLivesMatter is trending nationally and has already been used to push for change.
“Black Lives matter is a hashtag that can and should be used in every context,” Black Lives Matter organizer and founder and founder of the Movement for Black Lives Alicia Garza said in a statement after the movement’s announcement.
“As people of color, we are not immune to police violence and discrimination and are therefore not immune from the effects of systemic racism.”
Black lives matter because we are in the minority that the state is trying to silence.
We are in a situation where Black Americans are over represented in the prison system and that black communities are under-represented in the law enforcement system.
We’re in a state where we’re incarcerated at a rate that is two to three times higher than our white counterparts.
We have an epidemic of police brutality that has created a culture where we feel like our safety is at risk, that our rights are being violated.
The movement has gained traction across the country and has garnered attention from major outlets like CNN, CNN, CBS, The New York Times, NBC News, and many others.
I think this hashtag is really important.
It is a call to arms to all people of all races.
It’s an opportunity for people of colour to come together and talk about this.
This isn’t a white thing.
This can happen to anyone.
It can happen anywhere.
Black lives matter is all of us.
This hashtag is all about everyone and everyone has a voice, Garza added.
In the wake of the #Blacklivesmatter hashtag, there has been a lot of discussion about the racial disparities in the criminal justice system.
Many people have said that the criminal-justice system is “racist” and that the issue is “white supremacy” rather than racial disparities.
As a white person, I don’t believe the criminal system should discriminate against anyone, nor should it discriminate against Black people.
The criminal-system is the system that has perpetuated systemic racism and oppression against people of Color.
It also has a huge impact on Black communities.
Black communities in the U.S. account for only 12% of all people in prison.
And according to a 2015 report by the Sentencing Project, nearly half of Black people in the nation are behind bars.
We can’t allow that to continue.
Black people are overrepresented in prisons, the Sentiting Project found.
In addition, Black people face disproportionate levels of arrests and criminal charges.
A study by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that Black people, on average, face nearly a two-year incarceration sentence.
And when Black people make up over 40% of incarcerated people, they make up 23% of those who are held in the maximum security prison.
We know that Black Americans have a higher rate of incarceration than any other racial group in the country.
Black Americans make up more than 5% of our population, yet we have a disproportionate amount of incarceration, according the Senturing Project.
It appears that our criminal- justice system has become a racist system.
Black students are incarcerated at twice the rate of white students.
We also know that the police are the primary perpetrators of violent crimes against Black communities, and police brutality has a long history in the Black community.
The police have a record of killing and harassing people in Black communities all across the nation.
In the wake to Black Lives Day, we must make it clear that the black lives matter movement is not about “white racism” but rather about systemic racism.
And this movement is about addressing systemic racism within
