A friend of mine shared this post on Twitter today about something one of her friend’s witnessed in NYC last night, and I felt it was important for us to post it on here - as a way of both getting the word out and seeing if anyone has any way of helping the situation (blogging, writing an article, knowledge of a missing person, etc.) Please share if you can - there has to be something we can do to help. It is possible to get in touch with the original source - please first email it to projectunbreakable@gmail.com and we will forward it to her.

which is a cowardly thing to do and also shows the great lengths you will go to in order to avoid examining your role in a toxic system

I hope this helps racist people understand that AAVE is an acceptable English dialect that is not the result of broken English, someone’s education level, or laziness.

The great irony of complaining about African-Americans speaking “Ebonics” is it takes a great degree of ignorance to believe it…

I’ve been on vacation and am returning to the real world now, and I’m sure what I’m about to write will be repetitive for some. But I can’t not write it, and I hope that you share it because tomorrow, October 1, has the potential to be a historic day for Hong Kong, good or bad.

You have probably…
