All of those people around him are demons
hey guys! here’s some fun things i learned from this article about Dion Diamond:
- he did these sit-ins by himself. like idk about you, but i always thought of sit-ins as organized by groups, what kind of bravery does it take, man
- he didn’t tell anyone about it, like he was no glory-seeker about this. his parents didn’t even know until reporters started calling them up like “hey, did you know your son is in jail?
- when someone called the cops he’d skedaddle out the back door although he was sent to prison multiple times
- the last time he got arrested was in Baton Rouge, and the cops were so sick of him that they told inmates they’d put in a good word for anyone who gave Diamond a hard time. (the inmates didn’t take the bait.)
- he’s still alive!
hark, a hero of our times!
That is unbelievable courage!
there is no reason good enough to arrest a 6 year old, this is purely racist
WHAT THE FUCK
WHAT KIND OF THREAT DO YOU EVEN MANIFEST THAT SIX YEAR OLD CHILD HAS TO YOU TO EXCUSE THIS???
THIS IS FUCKING DISGUSTING AND PEOPLE ARE FUCKING MONSTERS FOR DOING THIS/IGNORING THIS/EXCUSING THIS
Imagine being such a punkass little bitch that you arrest a kindergartener for throwing little baby hands.
Highly recommend this book for those concerned about the treatment of Black girls in educational institutions.
Try searching for it on Bookshop.org and help support local bookshops instead of buying from Amazon. Even better if you can find a Black owned bookshop online and buy direct from them.
ADDITIONALLY: Contact your local school board and ask if the public school contracts with local police departments for their school resource officers (SROs). Demand that they terminate their contract and redirect resources plan a better way to serve their students. Minneapolis public school board did this last week.
