Take 5 minutes out of your morning/night to educate yourself on this young man LL. The brother was LYNCHED. “Crackertown”, North Carolina. Been gone since the morning of Aug. 29th. Day of his first football game of his senior year. All that hard work in the summer for nothin’. #JusticeForLennonLacy

This needs more light..

So he was found hanging, the morning of his first big game that he had been preparing for all year, wearing somebody else’s shoes, with his brand new shoes missing. he had a white girlfriend, openly racist neighbours, confederate flags everywhere, marks on his face indicating he was in a fight just minutes before..

This was not a suicide, no way in hell. This was a modern day lynching.

I hope they get answers soon. Poor boy.

This is a fucking shame.

Marissa Alexander faces 60 years in prison.

Here’s a heads up, folks:

Yes, Marissa Alexander’s original 20-year sentence was overturned. However, she now faces 60 years. The gossip blogs sharing the “breaking news” about her 20-year sentence being overturned took a year-old article from ABC News and slapped a new date on it without publishing updated information. Here are two more updated articles about her case.

I’ve been seeing that Black Media Scoop article being shared and retweeted everywhere, so I didn’t want anyone else to fall prey to the hype. Please feel free to spread the word.
