“Picking Ones Battles”

I have been really keeping my two eyes and ears open for an outcry by members of our celebrity fraternity. Where are the Smiths and the Carters? Except for a vocal Talib Kwali I hardly see an enraged personality manning or “womaning” social media to shed light on what appears to be an increase in violence against black youths in America. Today I want to acknowledge the tragic deaths of over 3000 men and women who lost their lives in 2001. Let us stay vigilant and continue to lift our voices against any acts that threaten the lives or violate the rights of all Americans — especially young black men in this country. #oggl_ig #blackportraiture #bedstuyportrait #brooklynportrait #brooklynphotography #streetportrait #street_bw #streetphotography #makeportrait #makeportraits #igers #instamood #webstagram #sonyr100 (at Clinton - Washington Ave (G) Train Station)

Round Up. Week 2

Cole killed it.







Kody (Pretty Boy) Ingham (pictured above) was found hanging from a tree in front of his white girlfriends house on July 15, 2013 (the same night as the George Zimmerman verdict) in Athens, Texas. it was chalked up as a suicide and no investigation ensued, even though two hours prior he called his mother to pick him up from the site he died at. no newspaper article, just a four sentence obituary in the local papers and his family has been trying hard to make any mainstream news channel blow up the story to find the killers.

Roy Veal was found hanging in Woodville, Mississippi in 2004. he originally lived in Seattle and went to his mother’s home in Woodville to help her fight for the rights to their family land against a white man. Oil had been found underneath the land.

Roy’s head was covered with a pillow case and burned papers of the documented proof he had to prove his mothers’ ownership were found burned at his feet. He was later found hanging from a tree. His death was ruled a suicide.

His family is still trying to get attention for the case 

Reynard Johnson, 17, was found hanging from a tree on his front lawn on June 16, 2000 in Kokomo, Mississippi. His death was ruled a suicide even though the belt around his neck was not his. Authorities said since no hate group left a message by the body, there was nothing to investigate. Family members said the motive was his relationship with a white girl, he was constantly being harassed because of this.
