  • Please read my last post and start coalition building. With all this craziness of attacks on black, brown, indigenous, immigrants. trans communities and basically anyone who isn’t a white male, (especially wealthy) it’s clear that it’s getting more and more dangerous every day. Trump administration is testing to say how Hitler he can go to make this country “great again” for whites only. The brutality displayed at the border is connected to the brutality shown towards EJ, and #JemelRoberson, is connected to the injustice of the #MuslimBan, is connected to injustice on Native peoples and the spike in hate crimes. We are ground zero. We need to organize like NEVER BEFORE. Did you ever wonder what you would have done during Hitler’s time? Slavery? Civil Rights Movement? Think you would have been an ally to those in need?? Now is the time to prove it. Organize. Get active. Get loud. Get bold. Channel all that anger and fear into action! ✊🏽 This administration has broken domestic and international laws and burned the rule book at the beginning of 2017. Demand your representatives stop playing by the rules and fight tooth and nail in unprecedented, unconventional ways to protect the most vulnerable. Follow activists/organizations like @lsarsour @paolamendoza @mpowerchange @blmlosangeles @blklivesmatter @osopepatrisse @mrmikedelarocha @docmellymel @shaunking @unitedwedream @conmijente @massbailout @leemerrittesq @msladyjustice1 @raicestexas @carecen_la @pueblosinfronteras @lilnativeboy @ashleemariepreston and others for leadership and liberation oriented work. ✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽

  • Pay it forward, good job Kanye. No amount of money can replace the loss of a person, but it can help with the financial hardships that come with an untimely death. Jemel Roberson was a hero, may he Rest In Peace. Such a sad story on every level.

  • Repost @leemerrittesq #AllFacts BLACK MEN DO NOT BELONG IN PRISON. There are crimes committed by human beings that warrant incarceration in order to protect society from the danger this person represents to society. I believe prison should be a rare remedy. Placing a person in chains and a cage is an unnatural inhumane act. I will never get use to prison. I will never normalize prison. The act is particularly heinous when perpetuated by the same system that gave us slavery. Bryan Stevenson said it this way. The world would not tolerate the death penalty in Germany. Particularly if it was levied disproportionately against Jewish citizens by the German government. The history would be too unsettling. 1 out of 4 black men will be incarcerated during their lifetime in America. Many for crimes like poverty, addiction and mental health disorders. I am an abolitionist. I am fighting to bring an end to our system of mass incarceration. As a civil rights attorney no one has been impacted by Smolett’s allege lie as much as my clients. If proven guilty there are a thousand seriously impactful penalties that should be implemented... but not prison. I will never celebrate putting non violent black men in chains. Also, as long as we are prosecuting people who lie to the police— let’s show that same energy to police that lie to the people; As law enforcement regularly and routinely do all around the country. P.S. THE COP THAT MURDERED #JEMELROBERSON remains free and employed in Illinois. Jemel prevented a mass shooting before being shot to death by a trigger happy cop.

  • After hearing the two officers will not face charges for the killing of #stephonclark who mistake a cell phone for a gun, this really bothered me. Really all of them bothered me, but this one I could not shake. If you are reading this and you think this has nothing to do with you. Take a listen and allow me to break it down how it does. 🎧Listening links are in my bio. . Tough listen! Needed to be said!

  • While working as a security guard at a bar in Chicago, Jemel Roberson bravely stopped an active shooter and pinned him to the ground. In doing this, he saved countless lives that night. He was the “good guy with the gun” the NRA is constantly ranting about. However, this story did not end the way it should have. Instead of being met with respect and admiration, he was killed by a Midlothian police officer upon arrival. Jemel was forced to leave behind his nine-month-old son and the mother of his child with another child on the way. Jemel was a hero who saved countless lives just like @jamesshawjr. He should not have been killed this way. He deserved so much more than this. Thank you, Jemel for your brave sacrifice. We need to remember this story and fight for justice. Not only do we need to address the gun violence issue in our nation but we also need to address the race issues that continue to plague the Black communities of America.

  • On November 11 2018, Jemel Roberson, 26 year old African-American security guard for Manny's Blue Room Bar in Robbins, Illinois was fatally shot by Ian Covey, a police officer responding to a call of shots fired at the bar. Roberson was working for the bar and was legally armed as a guard when four people were fatally shot by a gunman. After Roberson subdued and pinned the actual shooter to the ground, he was shot by the officer arriving at the scene. #racialprofiling #stopmilitarizationofpolice #jemelroberson #stitchtheirnames

  • See article on SecurityTV.com Video: Witnesses say they warned cop that Jemel Roberson was security, not a threat Soon after the fatal shooting of a black security guard by a white police officer last year in Robbins, other security guards at the bar were shown saying they had repeatedly warned the officer that 26-year-old Jemel Roberson was a security guard, according to video footage released Wednesday. More than a dozen videos were made public by the Cook County sheriff’s office from a variety of cell phone cameras and police body cameras. They show security staff at Manny’s Blue Room and other witnesses calling the police “racists” and show the chaotic scene that followed the shooting. None of the videos show the actual shooting of Roberson. The new footage shows Roberson during the aftermath, laying on his back at 4 a.m. on Nov. 11, 2018, outside the bar at 2911 S.
