Racial Justice NOW !
A South Carolina Black female student was brutally attacked, thrown from her seat and tossed across the room by a school police officer even though she had obeyed orders to put her cellphone away. Police intervention was employed when her teacher did not think that she put it away fast enough, Horrified students watched and video taped the incident. Where are Black children safe? How can this girl's humanity be so blantantly challenged?
Roxane Gay (NYT) writes: "Far too little attention is being given to who the young girl is...When that officer saw her, sitting quietly, defiantly, she was not allowed to be human. She was not allowed to have a complex story. She was held to a standard of absolute obedience. She was not given the opportunity to explain the why of her defiance because she was a black body that needed to be disciplined by any means necessary."
