Police Brutality: Why Is Baltimore Not Outraged At Mya Hall’s Death? AnonHQ

“While the deaths of black men like Mike Brown, Eric Garner, and Freddie Gray have outraged people on social media platforms and on streets, little or no attention has been given to Hall’s death. She and her friend have been written off as troubled. Hall’s name is missing from Reddit, an online platform usually supportive of transgender victims of violence and black victims of police brutality.
While protests like those in Baltimore remind us that #BlackLivesMatter, the lives of fallen black women tend to matter less when it comes to summoning public outrage over their deaths. “When black men are killed, slogans like “hands up, don’t shoot” or “I can’t breathe” echo across the country. When black girls and women like Boyd are killed, there is comparative silence,” writes Darnell Moore”
