Read The Signs

black lives matter

All of the photography you see is the mighty work of Misan Harriman.

what if

“What is there wasn’t a video?”

white protester

“You’re not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong.” – Malcom X

be the change

“I am no longer accepting the things I can’t change. I am changing the things I can not accept.” – Dr. Angela Davis

white supremacy problem

“White supremacy is a white problem that needs to be solved, not a Black problem to be empathized with.”

black lives

“The system is stained with the blood of innocent Black lives.”

single families

“They kill our daddies, then make fun of us for being fatherless.”

say their names

“Say Their Names.”

BLM we matter

“Matter is the MINIMUM. Black lives are worthy. Black lives are beloved. Black lives are needed.”

wrong generation

“Ya’ll f*ckin’ with the wrong generation! Watch this space! Power to the People.”

white priviledge

“Admit your privilege.”

chosen side oppressor

“If you are neutral in a situation of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”

tolerating

“Tolerating racism is RACISM.”

part of the problem

“If you’re not outraged, you’re part of the problem!”

white silence

“White silence = white violence.”

enough is enough

“You take our beauty. You take our culture. You take our lives. Enough is Enough.”

bad apple rotten

“It’s not one Bad Apple. It’s a Rotten Tree.”

defind the police

“End police immunity. Fund Black communities.”

not sure

“If you’re not sure how to respond, LISTEN. If you’re not sure what to read, RESEARCH. If you’re not sure what to do, DONATE, PARTICIPATE, PETITION. “Not sure” becomes “not my problem”. It’s not enough to be “not sure”, when racism is still impacting lives.

stand in solidarity

“Solidarity. Not just sympathy!”

silence is

“There comes a time when silence is betrayal.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
