Dec. 24, 2014:


"Every 28 hours a Black body is slain by a cop, security or vigilante.
EVERY 28 FUCKING HOURS. This is what genocide looks like."

A Minnesota spokesman for #Blacklivesmatter has repeated this phrase
several times on CNN, though leaving out "security or vigilante."

Traditionally a person has been considered as more than a mere body, but
maybe that's changing.
