Justice is not blind, it has a clear preference for white skin criminals
For those unfamiliar with Kalief's case:The post is not telling the whole truth, in one case the white terrorist paid M bail, but the 16 year old, accused of stealing backpack could not pay 00 bail.
Over the past few years, the country has heard the harrowing story of my brother Kalief Browder, a 16 year-old who was jailed at Rikers Island for three years for allegedly stealing a backpack. However, what the country doesn’t really know is the impact my brother’s detention and death had on my family, especially my mother, Venida Browder.
My mother blamed herself for Kalief’s detention because she couldn’t afford the ,000 bail money. She cried herself to sleep every night while he was away, filled with guilt for not being able to help her child. Still, through that pain she went to visit him every day. When the charges against Kalief were finally dismissed and he was able to come home, we were all overjoyed, but no one more than my mother. However, our joy soon turned to grief.
Haunted by the mental and physical torture he was subjected to by officers at Rikers Island, including two years of solitary confinement, Kalief took his own life in 2015 at our home shortly after he was released. My mother, who had already grieved for her son when he was detained, then had to grieve for him for the rest of her life.
