plummerphotos It's funny how how so many police officers view calls for Black people not to die as as "anti-police." Does that mean being "pro-police" necessitates being anti-black? Doesn't add up for me. #blacklivesmatter? 21h

plummerphotos The woman in the middle of the picture looked at all the protestors going by last Saturday and insultingly said, "Some of these people have nothing better to do." But she is right! There is NOTHING better to do than to publicly fight for the rights of humans not to be killed by the police force that they pay for.
You can't be neutral on a moving train." -Howard Zinn

plummerphotos NEWSFLASH: If you are silent on police corruption and racism you are NOT a GOOD cop. You are a criminal conspirator. You are not supposed to be on the side of the law. You are supposed to be on the side of JUSTICE. #ICantBreathe #blacklivesmatter #NYPD 2d

plummerphotos You better make some noise! Just in case you got bored fighting for justice, let me remind you that #EricGarner still can't breathe. Neither can #TrayvonMartin, #AiyannaStanley-Jones, #TarikaWilson, #JohnCrawford III, #TamirRice, #AmadouDiallo, #JonathanFerrell, #NoelPolanco, #MikeBrown, #OscarGrant, #KennethChamberlin, #RamarleyGraham...and it goes on an on.

plummerphotos Despite the tens of thousands of people that flooded Manhattan to protest racism and injustice, it barely got any media coverage. That means it's up to all of US to put the eyes of the world on what is happening. Don't let the power structure change the subject. Justice is never out of style. #ICantBreathe #EricGarner #ourstreets #shutitdown #blacklivesmatter 3d
  •   jjpucci You want real change....change up your strategy. forget the streets. Go protest in front of the political man's door step. Their the ones with all the power. Follow where they go, demand change in front of their work buildings....get in their faces.....not the police officers. The men in the real expensive suites... and.... of course don't be violent, be smart. 3d

plummerphotos Shoutout to Cleveland Browns wide receiver, Andrew Hawkins, for demanding that the police killers of #TamirRice and #johncrawford be brought to justice. #BLACKATHLETESTAKEASTAND #WHOISNEXT? #blacklivesmatter 3d
  •   hawk @king_sanu_12 much love! 3d
  •   plummerphotos @yungmanoldsoul Ok fair enough. Simple question though: Do you believe the officers would have done the exact same thing if the kid was white? 3d
  •   yungmanoldsoul I would never try to answer that. Trust me, I know about people's biases and how much of an impact that can have when you put a gun on someone's hip and place the law in their corner. To me, there are better fights to fight at this point in time. We watched a man get murdered on video by a police officer using a tactic that is not authorized. That's clearly manslaughter. Fighting over things that will never know the answer to dilutes the message in my opinion. I've seen black officer shoot white people when they THOUGHT they had a gun. It happens. Fight the system in those cases, not the officer. These mistakes are part of the reason out forefathers NEVER wanted or intended for policing to evolve into what it has become in this country. 3d
  •   yungmanoldsoul Don't think that I haven't pictures the officer that shot him as some little punk ass dude from the suburbs that thinks every black person in a hoody is suspicious. I've been called the same. I understand what you feel and I know how likely it is that some of your thoughts are actually fact. I get it. I just also see 3d
  •   yungmanoldsoul Didn't mean to post that so soon. My service is bad. ......I just see the other side of things and want both sides to understand one another. 3d
  •   plummerphotos @yungmanoldsoul I hear all that and appreciate your perspective from inside. It's just that after awhile, when these "tragic situations" keep consistently happening to black people it becomes hard to believe that they are coincidental or accidents. And that's the frustration. 3d
  •   plummerphotos @youngbabyhawk Much respect, young brother. 3d
  •   yungmanoldsoul I agree. That's why I brought up the diluting the message thing. If we focus our energy on the one that is clearly wrong, it will trickle down and effect incidents like Tamir Rice even though we don't directly fight for that incident. I could explain that better, but I think you get me. They aren't always accident or coincidental. They are a result of a bad system that employs both good people, and people that should never have been given a gun and badge. I definitely understand where you're coming from and I stand with you in the general fight. I just pick and choose my battles a little different. I've always had the same high amount of respect for you. That won't ever change. 3d

plummerphotos Shout out to all the athletes showing the courage to PUBLICLY and OVERTLY stand up against racist and deadly police practices. But special shoutout to the women of Cal Berkeley who showed more courage than anyone by explicitly listing Black victims' names. They raised bar. Who's next? #standup #speakup #ICantBreathe 4d
  •   _klc215 We need to & you know I said something .. 4d
  •   plummerphotos @_klc215 I figured as much. I was wondering if the black uniforms on Sunday was in support of the "wear black" thing that a lot of black communities were doing yesterday or if it was just a coincidence. 4d

plummerphotos I wanted to smack every last one of these #SantaCon clowns who crossed through the protest yesterday. We got 30,000 people out here fighting for the lives of REAL humans and you losers spend your energy on dressing up like imaginary magical elves and reindeer and drinking. #getaclue #getinvolved #blacklivesmatter #ICantBreathe #ourstreets #MillionsMarchNYC 5d
  •   ohiris I saw a group of them tryna cross the street chanting "Santa is white" and being obnoxious. 5d
  •   roro7387 I was praying that they stayed on 7th ave. One wrong comment from the drunk santas and it would have been a disaster. 5d
  •   mrs_knicks Facts 5d
  •   salimandersays22 I think everyone had a right to occupy their time in a way that fits them. You do you and let others do them. Of course there will be obnoxious ppl like those mentioned above who aggravate things by yelling "Santa is white" but I don't think we should stigmatize a bunch of ppl in their 20's having a festive day out. It's their right to conduct their lives in a manner they deem fit as much as it your right ro protest against injustice within the American judicial system. 5d
  •   plummerphotos @salimandersays22 Are you seriously equating a mass march against death with a mass gathering of grown ups acting like children? It takes a special type of callous indifference to feel like dressing up like a clowns and partying next to people that are decrying unjust deaths. 5d
  •   salimandersays22 @plummerphotos I never equated the two. 5d

plummerphotos Thank you to everyone that participated in the resistance movements in New York and Washington yesterday (as well as all over the country). Thank you for trying to create a world in which my son won't be perceived as a scary monster by the police but rather as a human being. If you were out there yesterday, please comment so that I can know who you are! #blacklivesmatter 5d

plummerphotos Can't even begin to explain or even show in pictures how many people walked for miles and miles today in NYC to protest racist police practices. Just know that whatever you imagine it was, it was bigger. Much bigger. #ICantBreathe #ourstreets #shutitdown #MillionsMarchNYC 6d

plummerphotos WHY I MARCH
Tomorrow I will join the Millions March in New York City. Before doing so, I thought that I would pen and share my thoughts on why I am participating in this march as well as why I joined several previous ones. My personal goals for participation are the following:

1) I will inconvenience your lives.

I will not let people be indifferent to execution of my people and carry on with their lives as if nothing Earth-shattering did not happen. I will no longer let America develop an unfeeling tolerance to the tax-funded murder of Black people.
2) I will not let people forget state sponsored murder.

Every time that you think that I "got over it," I will remind you again that I am very much not over it and will never give you a chance to be over it either until I feel that America will serve justice to every citizen including Black people.
3) I will be inspired and motivated.
My commitment to fight evil is renewed when I surround myself with dozens, hundreds, or thousands of like-minded people.
4) I will make my own justice.
That's why we are shutting commercial and transportation centers down. If the justice system does not deliver, we mete out our own punishment and we choose to punish the system but interfering with its life force-money. We may never completely win this fight against racist and murderous police practices, but we will put everyone on notice that if you attack us, you better be prepared for a hell of a fight because we are going to go down swinging. No more police murders without consequences.
5) I will be able to tell my Black children that I fought for their lives.
Someday my children will read about this despicable chapter of the book of American history and ask me, "What did you do to stop this?" I will be able to tell them that I stood up for them. I stood when I was tired, when I was busy, when I was sick, when I needed to be out making money,-I stood up like a man and made my voice heard. I used my particular talents as a teacher and photographer as weapons on the frontline to defend their lives.
WHAT WILL YOU TELL YOUR CHILDREN?
