#WeAreDoneDying

Recent incidents are reminiscent of an atrocious era of hate and domestic terrorism where police officers and white protesters routinely brutalized African-Americans. The senseless death displays the continuance of systematic racism and privilege granted to white people in America.

It’s time to let our leaders know that We Are Done Dying
