TNC on the Killing of Jordan Davis by Michael Dunn

Jordan Davis had a mother and a father. It did not save him. Trayvon Martin had a mother and a father. They could not save him. My son has a father and mother. We cannot protect him from our country, which is our aegis and our assailant. [link]

Via MiLO, this piece of art that echoes TNC’s words:

“Making reference to the 1968 Memphis Sanitation workers strike where the iconic “I Am a Man” sign originated, the performance inverted the sign’s statement, pointing to the importance of the Civil Rights protests as well as to their limitations” [Click on image for more commentary as well as the source text]
