brother_malcolm On June 9, 1963, Fannie Lou Hamer was arrested in Montgomery County, Mississippi, along with June Johnson, Euvester Simpson, Rosemary Freeman, and Annelle Ponder. The five women were on their way back from a voter registration workshop in South Carolina. Upon their arrival at the Montgomery County jail, Hamer, Johnson, and Ponder were subjected to vicious brutality at the direction of notorious racist Sheriff Earl Wayne Patridge.
In the booking room, Johnson was stripped naked and slapped until her face was bloody and unrecognizable, then thrown into a cell. Deputies dragged Ponder into the booking room and beat her about the face as they yelled “Can you say ‘yes, sir,’ nigger? Can you say ‘yes, sir’?” When Ponder fell to the floor, they pulled her up and demanded that she address them as “sir” again. When she refused, the beating resumed.

When they were through with Ponder, the deputies came for Hamer. She was taken from her cell to another that held two Black male inmates. Deputies handed the inmates weapons and ordered them to beat Hamer or suffer the consequences. The first inmate, wielding a blackjack, beat her on the back until he tired. The second inmate was told to take over and resume the beating. When he was handed the blackjack, Hamer began to struggle and move her feet. Deputies instructed the inmate who had performed the first beating to sit on her feet so she couldn’t move them. When Hamer began to scream, one of the deputies hit her in the head, demanding she remain quiet. Hamer’s dress had worked up high above her shoulders, and she attempted to pull it down. In a display of racist sexual domination, a deputy walked over and yanked it back up.

  •   brother_malcolm I knew you'd get there @jeni_leng if they haven't changed, why should I? 2d
  •   outl7w @brother_malcolm I feel it. They would say it is structured. Its fair. And it certainly upholds their laws. You're right its necessary to create order within our communities, but not their way...that has never worked for us. 2d
  •   brother_malcolm I concur @outl7w they talk a lot of shit to cover their own asses. Anything that starts out as a nigger catching clan (official or unofficial) is never gonna serve us well 2d
  •   outl7w @brother_malcolm agreed. I recommend a return to armed Black community owned and operated militia similar to what Robert F. Williams set up in NC in the 60s. Guided by African centered principles and ideologies we could have a force of men and women to handle community conflict and dispute as well as protect/defend the community from police and other external predators. 2d
  •   brother_malcolm I'm in England @outl7w. It's nowhere near that bad over here but I can see how that plan would work. I was never down with that 'hands up' thing 2d
  •   outl7w @brother_malcolm aaaah I see. Different perspective than mine. The English are arguably less overtly violent with their forms of racism, its still battlefield type shit goin on in our neighborhoods over here in the states tho....shit its just made the news that police are using off the grid sites to take us in and people are disappearing over here. Its real globally tho...we are one people. 2d
  •   cak3stagram @_srmc every time I see a post such as this, I think of a quote from their eyes were watching God.. Basically saying that we carry the weight of the world. When we die it's just another worker bee .. We as a black community need to work on praising, celebrating and defending us queens .. Cause we give life literally and metaphorically 1d
