from Huffpost: Angela Davis on Policing in America
"Why the mobilizations now?" Davis asked. Some would assume it's because so many black men and boys have been killed within a short amount of time; however, she reminded us that the issue of black men being targets of police violence is not a new occurrence, and it is important to correct the notion that it is. "There has been an unbroken line of racist police killings since the era of slavery." Davis declared."
