If you read the report from “Operation Ghetto Storm” it’s actually a black PERSON not a black MAN that is killed every 28 hours. That means that black women (and non gender binary folks) are also included in that statistic. Can we please stop pretending like black women’s bodies especially aren’t also criminalized and that they aren’t also subject to vigilante antiblack violence. The Renisha McBride case literally just ended and the media is still criminalizing her body.

somewherebetweenhellnhome said: You do realize the photographer of Humans Of New York asks for permission before he takes pictures of others or "exploits" them, as you say, right?
I’m sure he asks them, but are they getting any on of the money he get’s for doing what he does? Nope.
Have you ever been asked to do something you probably didn’t want to do, but did it anyway because you felt pressured? Have you ever had any of your work or your images used to help someone else make money and you didn’t see any of it?
Also consider the people he tends to take picture of are usually black and the long history of white photographers exploiting people of color in general in “telling their stories” He’s suspect.
Then there’s that whole thing that happened when the Rabbi repeatedly pressured and sexually harassed an African woman for sex, and HONY didn’t do a damn thing but kept on taking pictures.
Consider all of that before you come to my inbox again

My tribe isn’t federally recognized, so we’re basically invisible to the government (you can read about that here). This dam raise is a super huge threat to our culture; stopping it from happening is really important.
IF YOU CAN’T SIGN THE PETITION, PLEASE AT LEAST REBLOG THIS POST. IT WOULD MEAN A LOT TO ME AND MY PEOPLE. LIKE, PLEASE.
