"it’s hard not to cry and feel hopeless as you read this article. so much is so very wrong about what happened.
unthinkably unjust things happen in this world everyday. every second of every day, people are being abused physically, mentally, and emotionally because of their race. too many times, it’s fatal. but once in a while, the circumstances of a terrible incident align just right to give us an opportunity to change the status quo and make a better world, to move our society an inch closer to a more compassionate, sane reality.
as we prepare for the hearings of those 8 soldiers charged in danny’s death and also continue working with the public, media, and elected officials to demand real changes in the military, which sustains an environment that not only permits, but encourages and demands, racist abuse, we need every bit of support we can get. we need every facebook/twitter/tumblr post spreading the news coverage, every conversation, every voice demanding justice for danny and a more just society for all.
in her statements to the press, liz ouyang, president of oca-ny, stated, “It takes a volunteer civil rights organization, plus many other organizations, plus the family, plus the press, to demand the truth and make the system work.”
but the power behind all those elements was the people, who showed up to the march and vigil, spread the news, and made our anger palpable and unavoidable.
please stay plugged in and continue to support. danny died, but many others will not have to."
where keeping thousands out of "100,000+ young men" of psychopaths on a very short leash...
