Of Interest: I Fit The Description (Black Lives Matter)


Read the full article that W. Kamau Bell shared, I've had a few interactions with police in the past (only one where I had to get out of the car) and never had to feel that way at all. There is a double standard in our country.

"It was at this moment that I knew that I was probably going to die. I am not being dramatic when I say this. I was not going to get into a police car. I was not going to present myself to some victim. I was not going let someone tell the cops that I was not guilty when I already told them that I had nothing to do with any robbery. I was not going to let them take me anywhere because if they did, the chance I was going to be accused of something I did not do rose exponentially. I knew this in my heart. I was not going anywhere with these cops and I was not going to let some white woman decide whether or not I was a criminal, especially after I told them that I was not a criminal. This meant that I was going to resist arrest. This meant that I was not going to let the police put their hands on me."

 Art and everything after: I fit the description...
