#wyhwtm #justice4trayvon Thoughts on Justice

I’m gonna wear my hoodie today but I’m really confused by trying to demand justice from a system that has told us repeatedly to go the f*ck on. 

It’s also international anti-street harassment week and I can’t help but think about the similarities between all types of street harassment.

Stopped, Frisked and Speaking Out from NYT The Local - Ft. Greene on Vimeo.

Don’t these men sound like trans and cis women who are street harassed? Like Sakia Gunn

I also wonder what it is about the death of a young black man that gets people moving. There wasn’t the same mobilization around Aiyana Jones but I wonder if it’s also an accumulation of wrongs? 

What does justice look like here? And why are we still pleading for justice? How do we (can we) take it? How and when will we make connections between our movements?
