Say Her Name: On Average, Police Kill One Black Woman A Month

  1. Don’t American police agencies kill an approximate average of 2.75 people a day? These are people of every age, race, gender and creed. We’re all being terrorized.

  2. "Talking" about this issue goes no where, imho. It's necessary to come forward with real ideas and push for actionable reform that can actually help to solve the problem of excessive police brutality in general. There is clearly a cultural issue with policing in the U.S. that needs reforming and adjusting (Americans want to be tough at everything and shootings take place daily in the country). But I also see an unfortunate SHORTAGE of basic common-sense ideas being brought forward by those affected to help fix it.

  3. Thank You!! Many of us sit back and shake our heads knowing that many BW are killed at the hands of cops holds little importance; therefore, many of us are suspicious and/or hesitant in supporting BLM. We matter also. We are faced with the identical white rage, murderous intent, "karens" and harassment at the hands of white ppl and white cops as BM are. Let's recognize our little girls also. FACTS.

  4. Understand what got us in this position.
    It is sin is it not?

    I have compassion not just for my own people but for others too.
    If your wrong your wrong it does not come down to I will defend you just because we look alike because if you go deeper and search your own heart you will find no we are not the same.

    But if we as a people are gonna talk and deal with slavery
    Let’s talk about our sins for it is sin that got us there.

    Where the slave masters messed up
    Is that no they were not supposed to kill us. No they were not supposed to kill our children , no they were not supposed to treat us less than.

    However if you ever took the time to study the word of God and repent and then seek his face
    The Holy Spirit will teach you things no man can.

    Slave masters was not supposed to use Christ as a back drop to pervert the name of Christ.

    We as slaves was to be loved like your own brother or sister.

    We have one God and yes he stands alone.

    If we want to really get to the root of the problem . Understand there are other powers in the earth besides Christ Jesus

    Acknowledge the fact that yes we all are sinners.

    Ask yourself what spirit am I operating in? Ask yourself am I a delight in the eyes of God.
    Ask yourself am I living up to the standards of the Kingdom of God.
    Ask yourself do you know Christ for yourself?

    Yes we all are in need of healing.

    Yes we must be born again
    Yes Christ lives
    Yes the Lord our God, one is Lord

    Yes we all need to repent and break up our fallow ground.

    To have a mind and spirit of Christ is much to desired.

    Know that if any brother or sister comes to me and ask for forgiveness
    Absolutely they must be forgiven

    This can only be accomplished if one acknowledge where they went wrong and repent of their sins.

    Stay encouraged do not give up
    Just pray and seek the Lord

  5. I remember when Sandra bland was killed, and after how Black people men and women went to the house of the police officer that arrested her and demonstrated right in front of his residence. We do see black women getting killed and we are outraged, I don’t think we should use this as an issue of separation, this affects us all. In the 1960s the demonstrations were very much led by men and by women we worked together and we did help to affect some rather significant change. We should not forget that and we are going to have to move forward.

  6. Oooh one black woman a month. Big deal. Last year, American police kiilled 12,800+ people … THAT'S 35 PEOPLE A DAY! Stop making this about race and sex. IT'S ABOUT THE POLICE BEING PROTECTED NO MATTER WAT THEY DO OR WHO THEY DO IT TO! #EndSensationalism

  7. Police should be banned from pointing their weapons (of any sort) directly at anyone who has their hands up. With a maximum allowance of 4 feet aimed to the side (downwardly) of anyone who is not perceived to be an imminent threat. Such a rule should be enforced regardless of whether or not the officer is aiming a lethal firearm, a taser, a rubber bullet, etc. Therefore an officer would be forced to better explain how he arrived at firing on an unarmed female, etc.

  8. The scriptures do not lie: here is a list of prophecies that apply to a particular nation of people that fit these people like a hand in glove. However, another nation is claiming to be these same people but have never suffered any of the following curses which were prophesied centuries ago; long before the events took place in <Deuteronomy 28>

    (15) But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day ; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee :

    (20) The Lord shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly ; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.

    (22) The Lord shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew ; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.

    (25) The Lord shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies :thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them ; and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

    (26) And thy carcass shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.

    (28) The Lord shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart :

    (30) Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her : thou shalt build a house, and thou shalt not dwell therein : thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.

    (32) Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long : and there shall be no might in thine hand.

    (37) And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the Lord shall lead thee.

    (43) The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high ; and thou shalt come down very low.

    (45) Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed ; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee.

    (48) therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies, which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things : and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

    (58) If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, The Lord thy God ;

    (59) then the Lord will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.

    (64) And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other ; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.

    (65)And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest : but the Lord shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind :

    (66)and thy life shall hang in doubt before thee ; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life :

    (67) in the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even ! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning ! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.

    (68) And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again : and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.

    The curses outlined in this chapter did not happen to any other race of people but our people; for the past 400+ years and still continuing to this very day; yet the other people who are claiming to be us suffered a 6-year spat in concentration camps and claimed that 6 million of their people were gassed; but they never suffered one day of physical enslavement nor did the things described in these scriptures that were prophesied to happen to this nation which they claim to be, happened to them. Go figure.
