It is terrifying to consider that it takes the body of a black woman hanging dead in a jail cell -- over a traffic violation no less -- to finally get national attention on the issue of racist, police brutality against us.
This Mother's Day feels different. Ominous somehow and heavy with sorrow. It seems wrong to celebrate when so many mothers are in pain. Whether weeping over the unarmed, and largely ignored, corpses of their daughters slain by police.
