Antron McCray. Kevin Richardson. Yusef Salaam. Raymond Santana. Koery Wise. 
These are the names of the INNOCENT black and Latino men who spent 7-13 years in jail for a crime they didn’t, a crime they are still seeking justice for. Never Forget!
WE WHO BELIEVE IN FREEDOM CANNOT REST. [For more on social justice, follow me on Instagram: soulrevision]

Bottom: Black male inmates at Angola in 2014

Absolutely NOTHING has changed except the years. These photos are not only disturbing to look at, they prove that prison is a form of modern day slavery and that Nina Simone was correct when she said, “slavery has never been abolished from America’s way of thinking”. Welcome to the New Jim Crow. [For more on social justice, follow me on Instagram: soulrevision]

Despite public outcry, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery said Wednesday he will move forward with the felony child abuse prosecution of Shanesha Taylor, the jobless mom whose Scottsdale arrest has drawn national attention and prompted calls for Taylor to receive assistance rather than punishment. 

Attorney Bill Montgomery’s office received a petition on Tuesday with 12,000 signatures asking for Shanesha’s charges to be dropped. "First, they weren’t signatures; they were just a list of names," Montgomery said, referring to a printout from the website. "So I don’t know whether any of the individuals in their pajamas who logged on to the site and put their name on there really had a clue of all the circumstances involved in this particular case.

Apparently signatures aren’t good enough, let’s call County Attorney Bill Montgomery’s office & tell him to drop the charges against Shanesha Taylor —-> (602) 506-3411

America has a real problem with manufacturing fear for political interests. These tactics led by the NYPD fed into the racial/religious profiling & hate crimes that took place in the aftermath of 9/11. Our response to tragedy says a great deal about who we are as a nation.

Left: Catalina Clouser - Got high, drove for 12 miles with her 2 month old baby on the roof of her car before realizing her child was not in the vehicle.

Catalina pled guilty to child abuse and DUI, she avoided jail time and was sentenced to probation.

Right: Shanesha Taylor - A homeless mother, left her two kids (2 years old and 6 months) in the car while she went on a job interview for 45 minutes because she had no one to watch them. Shanesha was arrested and charged with a felony and had her kids removed from her care.

THE HISTORY OF TWERKING

If all you know about twerking is Miley Cyrus, watch this spoken word performance and learn about the true history of twerking and how its history has been written over by someone who bears no relation to its origin!

We have spent the month of March highlighting all of the wonderful contributions that women make and have made in this world, but we left something out. When we talk about history, we must include the good, the bad and the ugly. So, while we celebrate the strides that women are making, let’s remember this side of history, the side that is often overshadowed & goes unnoticed.

This is just a small snapshot of the ways in which women around the world are living under oppressive conditions, both here in the U.S. and abroad. Yes, this is an ugly part of our history, but we can change it. If we want our nations to succeed, we must make women matter! The fight for women’s rights is just beginning, join us! ‪
