No Justice When Women Fight Back
 Friday, 31 August 2012 00:00   By Victoria Law, Truthout | News Analysis 
What do a nineteen-year-old lesbian from New Jersey, a 23-year-old trans woman in Minneapolis and a 31-year-old mother in Florida have in common? All three were attacked, all three fought back and all three were arrested. All three are currently in prison while their attackers remain free. Oh, yes, and all three are black women.

Ok, so I reblogged this without the picture and wasn’t going to say anything, but am I the only one who is just completely grossed out by the picture they chose to accompany this article? Who the fuck are these white people, and why is their picture attached to an article about how black women are imprisoned for defending themselves against attack?! I know you have pictures of CeCe by herself, and it was completely unnecessary for you to post pictures of yourselves along with this article. I also know y’all want people to know you’re the good kind of white folk, and this fact not only makes me doubt your intentions and trustworthiness, but also makes me sick to my stomach.
