    The hashtag #DangerousBlackKids is breaking my heart. My godson is white and sometimes my stomach hurts thinking about what might happen to him in this world. I can only imagine that pain is multiplied by 1000 when the children you love live in a country that lets white people murder them for just existing, just being kids and black.

    I learned about Emmett Till when I was 8 or 9. What’s changed? What’s changed?

    The tag was created by @thewayoftheid, one of the editors of Hood Feminism, I believe.
