We (@EmedinaEduardo @RheaBoydMD) wrote this piece published today in @NEJM. We lay our souls bare. We share our pain and we call for action from our health care system. I am deeply proud of our words. What is most important is that we DO something. nejm.org/doi/full/10.10…

We(with @katybkoz)called for axe in 2016 after #PhilandoCastile was killed by a police officer. We asked u 2:Learn & accept America's racist roots;Understand how racism has shaped the disparities narrative;Define & name racism;Recognize racism, not race; Center the margins 2/5
Here we are 4 years later demanding much of the same. The choice before the health care system now is to show, not tell, that #BlackLivesMatter.

Statement from the student club Inclusive Earth (no twitter atm). If you find these graphics useful, feel free to share.

BLACK LIVES MATTER
This is not “political”.
This is a human rights issue
and a public health crisis.
This is personal.
1/20
Police brutality towards marginalized groups,
especially resulting in the murders of countless Black people for centuries, is awful and also a symptom
of the larger problems of structural racism and oppression. 2/20
Yes, EDUCATE yourselves on issues of diversity/equity/justice/inclusivity (DEJI) and especially anti-Black racism. Do better going forward. We all are.
But also know that EDUCATION IS NOT ENOUGH. 3/20

I'm tellin' you man, black folks, black Muslims, Arabs, Desis, Mexicans, etc., are out in the streets dancing to a tune so loud, they don't even know what key it's in. Because of this, many are unwilling and unable to acknowledge the main reason why
the death of #GeorgeFloyd has gone global, has gone viral, is because Chuck authorized it to go viral. The liberal wing of Chuck has authorized outrage over the death of a black man even though we've been dying at the hands of white cops and black hoodlums for decades!
The question I have is why did not white liberals authorize riots and protests when they killed #CliffordGlover, #ClaudeReese, #RandyEvans, #YvonneSmallwood, #AmadouDiallo, #SeanBell, #OscarGrant, #TrayvonMartin, #JordanDavis, #JonathanFerrell, #AiyanaJones,

1. So there are some thoughts I’ve been wrestling with & hesitant to share simply b/c the thought I wanna get across is so delicate in that I don’t want to I slow down the current momentum nor due I want to white people’s current activity to be fueled guilt rather than love...
2. The moment we are in will be one of two things. It will either be a catalyst for a new era where black and brown people no longer have to fear the police or it will be just another “moment of clarity” that will soon pass as white people get bored and move on to the next thing.
3. But the racial trauma counselor in me can’t shake this reality. That regardless of where the dust settles on this moment, when it does settle, this truth will remain the same.

It took the torture and death of ANOTHER black on camera in order for white people to care.

Racial injustice has been sustained by narratives of fear & anger, argues #BryanStevenson. "To fight against those narratives we need other narratives." Educate yourself on injustice & the systematic criminalization of blackness through these Peabody winning & nominated programs.
@Ava DuVernay's primer on the criminalization of African Americans, "@13thfilm," traces the story from racial slavery to convict leasing systems, from #JimCrow terror to mass incarceration as a way to exercise social control of black populations.

The question is: What does justice demand? A man's life was taken and someone needs to be held accountable. It's that simple. Ht @_michaelbrooks
2/ This gets down to a basic tenet of our supposed justice system: Accountability, i.e., the obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one's actions.

j.mp/2B79FRy
3/ But when police brutalize or kill black people, there's very little accountability, if any. The state, in effect, is saying no one's responsible.

A person is dead--not of natural causes--and no one's responsible.

Yesterday’s tragedy is hardly the first instance of @MinneapolisPD killing black people and sparking outrage.

In 2015, MPD shot Jamar Clark, a black man who was handcuffed at the time of his death.

Protesters responded by occupying a police precinct:

unicornriot.ninja/2015/justice4j…
The winter 2015 #4thprecinctshutdown quickly became an national symbol of escalating conflict between militarized police and communities they claim to serve and protect.
On Nov 17, 2015, protesters outraged by the @MinneapolisPD killing of Jamar Clark shut down the I-94 highway.

Police responded by arresting dozens. Our reporter on site was among the first arrested (his charges were dropped before trial).
