Entry Description

Police brutality has been an issue of racism for decades upon decades. The current invention of smartphones has made the issue more widely known, but Black Americans have cried out about this issue for decades. Brown skin has been systemically treated as a danger to citizens and to police officers. The message is simple: My Skin Is Not A Threat.
