Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People

I had to reblog this again because it just reduced me to tears. 

As most of you know, I am an attorney. And I am an attorney licensed in Minnesota. This is the state where I took an oath last year to uphold state and federal laws and to protect the rights of the citizens.

It PAINS me to see this. To see these unjust cops who I for all intents & purposes, have to stand along side. When they are abusing EVERY SINGLE OUNCE of POWER. Minneapolis/St. Paul have BEEN a war zone. I’m ashamed. I’m embarrassed.

Not all officers are bad. Please don’t let that be the take away. But police brutality is VERY FUCKING REAL. 

Watch this. If this doesn’t move you, if this doesn’t make you cry out in agony and want to change the world, I don’t know what will.

[trigger warning]

too distressing. the cries of my people 💔

Trigger warning for police brutality and antiblackness

crying. moments like this make me so scared. im scared that someone will see me with my daughter and assume i did something wrong. when im not in uniform, i can never be recognized as a a military member, im just ‘another black girl’. with an “attitude”, causing “trouble”. my tattoos falslely representing who i am as a person. why must our world be like this. i shouldnt be scared to go out in public alone. but its a real fear instilled in black americans all over the world.

What's it like so far with the two Babies? I'm thinking about trying and if I did mine would be about the same in age difference. I'm nervous that I would feel like I didn't have alone time with my first anymore. Do you feel that way?

I’m only a few days into the double baby thing. And I have logan here right now to “help”. But it’s hard. Especially since Mak was not happy with her at first. Aubri would cry and Mak would too. And vice versa. I can’t imagine what it’s gonna be like when logan leaves. I’m nervous. and I’m sure it’s gonna be harder. But I think I can do it.

Makenzie is barely barely opening up to her sister. I’m sure their relationship will grow. She just needs to adjust. But it’ll be okay. It’s a good change. :) nervous that she will feel abandoned but I’m trying to show her im still here for her. I’ll always be here. And am trying to involve her in everything. I don’t want her to feel like pushed aside.

I think 2 years is a perfect age difference. My sis and I are 1 year and we aren’t close. My bro and I are 3 years and were closer than my sis and I but at same time, far. I think two would be better. I’m glad it ended up working out like this. Of course I didn’t want the circumstances but hopefully the two years apart thing helps them be close since we are all we each have. :)
