I honestly cannot read another article about a white person who got a small 30k loan from grandma, a condo from aunt Maggie, and was making a $150k annually with bonuses, telling us how they saved to be debt free! It is not inspirational, it’s insulting.

Vanessa Nygaard, coach of WNBA Phoenix Mercury, re: Brittney Griner. “If it was LeBron, he’d be home, right? It’s a statement about the value of women. It’s a statement about the value of a Black person. It’s a statement about the value of a gay person. All of those. We know it.”

I'm Black, my family was in America in the 1640's. My great-great-great grandfather fought in the Revolutionary War. I AM TRULY A SON OF THIS REPUBLIC, and you mean to tell me that some klan member is a PATRIOT? We don't know what a patriot looks like. I'm a Marine & Soldier!

"White male 18 - 20" is why he doesn't have bullets in him but his victims do.😡

Today people are still celebrating “Independence Day.” Fuck that independence if it means the facilitation of these murders. For the sake of our children, of our future, we must stand against this tyranny of death. #HighlandPark

I am relatively invisible on this site and I don’t even know why I’m saying any of this. Maybe I just want to scream into the void. Maybe I just want to turn my anger into a small step toward action. But my life is changed forever. My wife and 6 yr lives are changed forever

This culture of death continues to consume people, and there’s no end in sight. We are lucky because we are all uninjured and we’re finally reunited. Our story is not anomalous. It is the bloody reality of too many of us.

We are at friends’ house because the shooter is still at large. There are no words to describe the abject sorrow and unimaginable horror we witnessed, mere inches away. Our nation has failed us. We have failed our children. This must stop.

It should have been us. It was close enough to touch. It was where we were 30 minutes earlier. It was all around us.

TW: Mass Shooting We were there. Right there. We live in Highland Park, IL and today we were in the middle of a murderous attack. I had to pull my infant child to safety as people were dead and dying around us. I got separated from my wife when she carried my 6 yo to safety

Fireworks are very American because they fuck up soldiers with PTSD while claiming to honor them

I ran from a mass shooting today with my two little girls in my arms. We got separated from my wife. We hid behind a car and then sheltered in the apartment of some good Samaritans for 5 hours watching swat teams from the windows. We are all ok but we’re angry, very very angry.

I was at the highland park parade. I was in the direct line of fire. I’m ok as is my family but I’m done with thoughts and prayers

Highland Park is one of the wealthiest areas of Illinois and 25 miles north of the city for all the geography-challenged shouting Chicago.

Black people should not have to be perfect to stay alive, be seen, be loved, and protected.

COVID isn’t seasonal. I REPEAT: IT IS NOT SEASONAL. It’s not under control. It’s not like a common cold. It’s not worth the risk of catching & spreading.

Nothing more American than a mass shooting at a 4th of July parade
Highland Park shooter is a white male, so most likely he will be apprehended alive.
