These Are the People We Ignore When We Talk About Black Lives Lost to Police Brutality

“The reality is, when black, straight, cisgender men and boys are beaten, brutalized and/or murdered by the police or white supremacists, it becomes a national issue in the black community, and in a few instances … the outrage moves beyond the black community,” Aishah Shahidah Simmons, producer and director of No! The Rape Documentary, told Mic. “Today’s actions are necessary and important interventions because they disrupt this narrative that violence against black cis and trans women are not also worthy of mass mobilization, protests and demands for accountability.”
