Salute to the Mothers of our conscious struuggle who sacrificed much, so that we could have a tomorrow and to all the courageous Sisters who just weren’t having any of it…
1. Angela Davis 2. Assata Shakur 3. Kathleen Cleaver 4. Sojourner Truth 5. Harriet Tubman 6. Rosa Parks 7. Fannie Lou Hamer 8. Shirley Chisolm 9. Sis. Minister Ava Muhammad 10. Two Sisters who weren’t having it!
We should really know all of these women’s names and contributions.
Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured. If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!
Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoBLolqUaNg
Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman? No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?
(Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)
