I SEE YOU D.C. AND I LOVE YOU
Black-Owned Accounts To Follow And Learn From
Breonna Taylor would be celebrating her 27th birthday on Friday if she hadn’t been brutally executed by police WHILE SLEEPING IN HER OWN HOME. Stand with this amazing woman and with all black women by signing @battymamzelle’s petition and following the actions in her profile to honor and celebrate Breonna
I unequivocally stand with black people. I stand with unwavering devotion to the uprising happening now demanding change and actions to save the lives of black people. From June 1 through June 7 I will be joining the blackout and only using this platform to amplify this life or death crisis. Using this space to highlight actions we can take and WE WHITE PEOPLE MUST TAKE is the very least I can to. It’s a hollow gesture if I and we and the collective WE don’t also take this home with us and walk the walk and put something more than an Instagram post on the line. So I will also do that and I’ll humbly share knowing it’s not enough but it’s a start because enough is enough
Every act I take is one steeped in white privileged, every act I don’t is tainted by complicity. It’s on us white people to dismantle the destructive and DEADLY systemic racism that we benefit from daily. Donate to the Minneapolis Freedom Fund linked in my bio for one small action. Start somewhere.
This is George Floyd. He should be alive today.
Say his name
This Quarantine Crew makes a global pandemic bearable and dare I say FUN (with a little help from Chaka Khan & Alexus Carrington). I’m so grateful and appreciative that our best friend/FAMILY @dejonnyc safely took the necessary precautions to come be with us for the last 10 days and for ALWAYS sharing the blessings and burdens and laughs that come along with this crazy life. “Through the fire, through whatever.” Inspired by the and with gratitude in mind, we are donating to The Carpenter Shelter this week. I put the link of this trusted organization in my bio in case you’d like to check it out. ❤️
GUYS THIS DOG IS A MOOD
Portrait of young dog
Breonna Taylor was an award winning EMT bravely putting her life on the line at work every day during a dangerous pandemic. Instead of finding safety at home, she was brutally murdered by police while tucked into her own bed by a “mistaken warrant” for a different black woman who was already in custody. There’s so much wrong with this case and this system, Breonna was only 26 years old and she deserves us to fight for her. See the actions you can take on @shaunking’s post, including sharing that you to bring awareness to this case. Rest in power Breonna Taylor. We will not get tired, instead we stay angry to fight for you and for the lives of black women that are out in danger daily by systemic racism in America
Grateful for a whole year with this angel baby. Happy birthday, Frankie Turnip! Her “gotcha day” was Sunday but I’m not a masochist so I avoided the internet all weekend and anyone else who also had to I see you.
