It’s amazing to me how many “ear to the ground” folks I know have spent so ugh time posting about Beyoncé but still aren’t spreading awareness about #kendrickjohnson . This 17 year old #blackboy was killed on school grounds in #Valdosta Georgia and everyone from the school to the cops to the coroner to the funeral home to the media is complicit in the #coverup . #CNN has been the only news outlet that has followed the story and tried to get the family some answers. HELLO PEOPLE this #blackbody is symbolic of how we as #blackpeople are still seen. THEY FILLED HIS BODY WITH NEWSPAPER! Look at his face! They tried to say he only suffocated?! How when he looks like #emmettill ?! If you can post about how wonderful Beyoncé is or anything else THEN SURELY you can share this story and spread awareness. The coverup is only working because people aren’t informed. The more people know, the more pressure can be put on the town. The US Attorney and FBI are involved but it’s not enough. Where are his rallies? His songs? His poems? Why is his image not being shared across the country? Across the world? Where is the #outrage
Oh my God. Bless his soul
oh trust there’s PLENTY outrage here in valdosta, ga. we’re making as much noise as we can. we need the rest of the country to be just as angry as we are.
I’m so scared of ever having a son. I remember years ago my dad took me to a town meeting. I’m from a town that’s mostly white- recently more populated by poc. This little boy attended a mostly white school and his teacher was targeting him. She would yell at him in class, use racially charged language to degrade him, and would force him to stand outside in Canadian winter without a jacket as punishment. His mother gathered us and we all were trying desperately to give voice to this story. He stood beside her with his eyes downcast and I couldn’t believe such a small child went through something like this in my hometown. People like to pretend racial inequality is not a reality in Canada but the truth is if it’s happening in the greater community it’s going on in our own backyards. Sorry if I’m derailing the issue at all—- I actually don’t think I can comment on this young mans death except to say I’m so sorry and heartbroken he had to die like that.
