today, my mama turns 26. She and I spend a lot of time cuddled in bed and in tears over the fact that Breonna Taylor never got to live past 26. That Breonna’s life was taken while she was supposed to be safe in her bed. Breonna was a beautiful, joyful, hard-working young woman with dreams of a future. Her life was snuffed out in a horrific act of police violence. We don’t share this story to make it a meme - Breonna deserves better. Breonna deserves justice. When we think about police violence against Black folks more often than not we focus on the horrific acts of violence perpetrated against Black men. We have to remember that Black women, femmes, and gender nonconforming folks face violence at the hands of white supremacy, too.
To demand justice for Breonna, please visit justiceforbreonna.org #sayhername#breonnataylor
if you haven’t already signed the petition or called the louisville officials, please do so. the link in my bio on BLM resources gives u all the info. no excuses for not keeping breonna’s name in the spotlight. black women in particular are overlooked in this country and we can’t give up on getting justice.
FYI. You can’t argue this only when it’s convenient for you. Black lives matter. Kids are STILL in cages. Asians are being attacked. LGBTQ have to fight for rights always threatened being taken away. I could go on... so if you wanna use this argument then fight for ALL lives. You can begin by wearing your mask. 😷 oh and ARREST THE COPS THAT KILLED BREONNA TAYLOR. Her life mattered too. #sayhername#saytheirnames#breonnataylor#blacklivesmatter
Protesting works. Even if your feed has returned to “normal,” we must stay loud, stay active and keep rattling the windows and doing the work outside of social media. It’s been 122 days and Breonna Taylor’s killers still have not been charged for her murder.
In a world where even the worst criminals get their day in court. Innocent POC should be able to go about their lifes without having the fear of ending up as a hashtags on social media
The detractors will always say listen to the police to be safe but then we come across stories of such beautiful souls who only wanted to serve their country but the system failed them
TAKE A STAND, LEND A VOICE. BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT
Happy Sunday! A reminder that #BreonnaTaylor was murdered, and the cops who took her life are still free. Let’s not get lazy. Go harder for Breonna.
What Happened to Breonna Taylor?
🔺 Breonna Taylor was an award-winning EMT and first responder in Louisville, KY, who loved helping her patients and her community. "She was an essential worker. She had to go to work," her mother, Tamika Palmer said of her dedication to standing on the frontlines of this pandemic.
🔺 On the night of March 13th, the Louisville Metro Police executed a warrant, looking for drugs they never found, reportedly trafficked by a person who did not live with Breonna or in her complex-and whom they already had in custody.
🔺 They sprayed her home with 20 rounds, shooting Breonna 8 times, killing her in her bed. Neither the Louisville Metro Police nor Mayor Greg Fischer have given her mother any answers. "Not one person has talked to me. Not one person has explained anything to me," Tamika Palmer, Taylor’s mother, said in an interview. "I want justice for her. I want them to say her name. There’s no reason Breonna should be dead at all.”

Remember our IG friend @doc.iggy we met and shared with you over the weekend? I (@michellesaahene) happen to be visiting Dallas for the week and found out he lives here! Now we are friends in real life too 🇳🇬x🇬🇭 🥳 How serendipitous!
Doc is shooting for the stars in life just like many of us, but also has to deal with the weight of racial discrimination from fellow scrub-wearers in institutions that weren’t meant for our participation unless we were on the table, and even then, still experiencing racism. It will be okay though, because Doc is smarter and cooler than all of those fools trying to tear him down. He’s going to be an amazing #surgeon and he has thousands supporting and rooting for him.
As his self-appointed cousin and Queen Mother (it’s an African thing) I’m going to ask to refrain from commenting on his looks. They got a bit wild on the last post of him. We all see his face. It’s cute. Black men are often fetishized, but not protected. Racism doesn’t care how attractive you are. Amplify their voices and their humanity. #ShowUp against racism.

This is truly heartbreaking. The more we learn about Breonna Taylor and her tragic murder makes us angrier. A recent update is that Breonna Taylor's shooting was the result of a Louisville police department operation to clear out a block in western Louisville that was part of a major gentrification makeover, according to attorneys representing the slain 26-year-old's family. The Jefferson County property value administrator's website shows after police arrested Glover the second time, the city moved to purchase the property on Elliott Avenue.
The property's deed — signed June 5, which would have been Taylor's 27th birthday — shows Louisville and Jefferson County Landbank Authority bought the home for $1 in June. #Repost@blackhealthcommission
