I'm watching @Lights4Liberty organize/prepare, and I'm totally against what's going on at the border in these Trump concentration camps.

But I'm still left asking why nobody has the same energy when it comes to police killing unarmed black people, & Flint not having clean water.
Hear me out. Tamir Rice was 12-years-old, and all he gets is a damn nonprofit dedicating the gazebo where a racist Cleveland police officer shot and killed him, dedicated to a museum?

Where is the outrage that @phoenixpolice pulled guns on black babies. Where are the protests?
Why isn't a Vigil being held to end police killing unarmed people in America? #SurvivingAmericasPolice
If this is about people dying, police are killing black people.

If this is about kids, police are terrorizing & killing black kids.

If this is about horrible conditions & treatment in facilities, Sandra Bland's murder should come to mind.

Why is America looking away?
This reminds me of Trump overlooking Flint/America's water crisis, and focusing on building a wall.

How can America overlook our crisis of racist killer cops, producing many black deaths. But have so much to say about what's going on at the border. Is it because we're black?
Tamir Rice isn't here to celebrate turning 17-years-old tomorrow (June 25th), so light a candle for him. His life mattered too.
Most supporting #Lights4Liberty had no concern about the border before Trump. 18 adults died while under detention by U.S. immigration authorities at various facilities between 2012 and 2015.

1 in every 65 deaths of a young black man in the United States is a killing by police.
Selective outrage. Hypocrisy and opportunism saturates so much of our politics. Rather than simple blindness to hypocritical violations of standards, people are declaring war on the standards themselves. The “coalition instinct.”
Tamir Rice would have been 17-years-old today. Happy Birthday Tamir. #SurvivingAmericasPolice
