Trayvon

Social Media Says

The men who murdered Ahmaud Arbery must be held accountable and there must justice for Ahmauds family. There is no doubt in my mind that Ahmaud would be alive today if he were white.
The video is clear: Ahmaud Arbery was killed in cold blood. My heart goes out to his family, who deserve justice and deserve it now. It is time for a swift, full, and transparent investigation into his murder.

Not long ago I mentioned to a group of white people that I never run at night because of the dangers of being a large black man running in the dark. I instantly knew they thought I was being extra. Turns out I was being understated. Ahmaud Arbery was running in the daytime.

The family of Ahmaud Arbery deserves justice and I am calling on state officials to do all they can to ensure that this is done. America is not a nation governed by reckless vigilantes. America is a nation governed by laws This unconscionable injustice must not stand.

Ahmaud Arbery was murdered in cold blood. He was 25 years old, with his whole life in front of him. His life was unique, but his murder feels all too familiar. We must work to protect our future generations - we cannot afford another loss. His killers must be brought to justice.

Say his name: AHMAUD ARBERY.
Ahmaud Arbery was murdered for being Black. His White assailants were allowed to roam free *for months* after lynching him. They faced no charges, no arrests. Police had video of Ahmaud s murder the day it happened. His family deserves justice. Our country deserves answers.

This is a video of 25 year old Amaud Arbery. He was jogging in his neighborhood in Brunswick, Ga. He was brutally killed, and the two men have not been arrested! Please read up on it, Justice must be served!

To share or not? It s the same question we ask when black people are brutalized in viral videos: does it escalate justice, or trigger trauma? Where do you stand? My latest explores this debate, and asks why posting it was a matter of justice.

No one should fear for their lives while going out for a run due to the color of their skin. Celebrate what would have been s 26th birthday w/ a run on Friday with & consider signing the petition.
Gregory McMichael & his son Travis McMichael gunned down Ahmaud Arbery, 25, on his daily jog in Brunswick, GA. His mother Wanda Jones said He was hunted down like an animal and killed. Call the Glynn County Police Dept & demand their arrest: (912)-554-7800.

The Ahmaud Arbery video is gut-wrenching. tears apart the killers citizens arrest defense.
WHY HASNT AMAUD ARBERY MURDERERS BEEN CHARGED?
All three Fox primetime shows last night covered the Texas salon owner who was jailed for violating stay-at-home orders. None mentioned Ahmaud Arbery, the Georgia man who was shot and killed while jogging, video of which emerged yesterday.

In Opinion writes, "Ahmaud Arbery had committed no offense. His only offense, the thing that drew suspicion, was that he was black and male and running through these white mens neighborhood.".
Ahmaud Arberys horrific murder reminds us how dangerous it is when average White people feel empowered to deputize themselves w/ powers of surveillance, judgment & punishment. THIS is why we get upset when folks call 911 on BBQs & lemonade stands. Its always been life & death.

At some point our country must meaningfully acknowledge that the killings of Ahmaud Arbery, Sean Reed, Sandra Bland, Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Rekia Boyd, Tanisha Anderson, and countless others are not isolated incidents or bad apples. It is systemic violence.

Ahmaud Arbery, shot dead for jogging while black. No one has been charged or arrested. If it was two black or muslim men chasing down a white man Im sure it wouldnt be the same.
Ahmaud Arbery s Killing Will Go to Grand Jury as Graphic Video Emerges.
On Feb 23, 2020, Ahmaud Arbery was murdered in the streets of Brunswick, GA by a man and son duo who HUNTED him down. Literally hunted him down. Because they saw him running down their street. The street that this man has run several times for a workout.

Ahmaud Arbery RIP, this is NOT okay!

Looks like things are finally starting to get back to normal in this country.
25y/o Ahmaud Arbery was chased shot and killed while jogging 2 months ago in Brunswick, Georgia. His family has been calling for justice since February 23rd, the shooters told police he looked like he was a suspect in a series of recent break-ins. *GRAPHIC.

So let me get this straight, Georgia has re opened massage parlors. Nail salons, gyms and tattoo places but can t open the court to get an emergency indictment to arrest the cold blooded murderers of Ahmaud Arbery??

I am trembling with anger over what I just witnessed. CLICK AWAY if you need to. We need ALL HANDS ON DECK. This is the lynching of Ahmaud Arbery. It s one of the worst things I ve seen in my entire life. Meet us now @ to demand justice.

"Prosecutor to bring shooting of Ahmaud Arbery to a grand jury".
Black boys/men in America cant Play outside w/ a Toy Gun- Tamir Rice Walk home from a trip to a convenience store- Trayvon Pull out a Wallet during a traffic stop- Philando Castile Sleep in his own home- Botham Jean Jog in his own neighborhood- Ahmaud Arbery BLACK LIVES MATTER.

Why is Georgia only now seeking justice for ? We know the terrible answers.
Justice for Ahmaud Arbery.
was going for a jog through his neighborhood when he was shot and killed. He should be alive right now. Mourn, get angry, but whatever you do, do not stay silent in the face of this injustice.
i went to sleep thinking about Ahmaud Arbery, woke up still thinking about him, then found out about Sean Reed. this shit is ridiculous man.
It s appalling that they only decided to prosecute two murderers after video of Ahmaud Arbery s murder came to light.
I have not seen a single non-poc person at LEAST share a post about Ahmaud Arbery and Sean Reed. These deaths happened in the SAME WEEK. And you still refuse to admit that race is 200% the problem. Y all make me sick.

cw: racism/violence Call: 912-876-4151 Text: justice to 55156 Sign: Demand justice for Ahmaud Arbery. He went for a jog & was killed in an act of white supremacist terror. His killers must be held accountable. No one should be afraid to exist in public.

Ahmaud Arbery, 25, was shot to death in Brunswick, Fl on Feb. 23 as he was jogging through the Satilla Shores neighborhood. Continue to post the names of his 2 murderers: Gregory McMichael, 64, & his son Travis McMichael, 34 of Brunswick Ga.

. : The similarities here to Trayvon Martin are uncanny. These men stalked Arbery, projecting onto him a criminality of which he was not guilty, then used self-defense as justification to gun him down in an altercation they provoked.

Georgia Governor with one of the killers of Ahmaud Arbery. Let it.
This is Ahmaud Arbery. He was 25-years-old. He went jogging. A white man and his son, hunted him down and murdered him. Once again for those in the back, 25-years-old and exercising when two white men hunted him down like an animal and murdered him.

African American Ahmaud Arbery Executed While Jogging in Georgia.
IF AHMAUD ARBERY WAS WHITE HIS MURDERS WOULD VE BEEN CAUGHT, CONSIDERED ARMED & DANGEROUS, TERRORISTS! Like WHAT IS TAKING SO LONG!?
Incidents such as the one in GA involving Ahmaud Arbery a black man are how I make the majority of my enemies on social media because I refuse to engage in the kind of subjective partiality in which "justice" is defined through the spectrum of the skin color of the victim.

In some ways, since the perpetrators had no way to know about his past, suspicion was part of Arbery s very existence. on the death of Ahmaud Arbery.
To my surprise, the best, detailed account Ive seen so far of the shooting is on a conservative blog, . Their final sentence: "Indict them.".
3rd suspect - the guy who filmed the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery has been identified. His name is William Roddie Bryan .
My heart hurts for Ahmaud Arbery and Sean Reed s family. Both videos are horrific, sad, cruel, and I just can t make sense of it. Praying both families get justice that leads to peace.
REST IN POWER, Ahmaud Arbery. You re more than a hashtag.
Ahmaud Arbery was murdered three days before the anniversary of the 2012 killing of Trayvon Martin. Both situations show that white supremacy leads to the targeting of Black lives during even the most mundane activities.

Join and sign this petition. Demand justice for Ahmad Arbery!


What You Really Think

The coverup is similar to . The South Georgia teen found rolled up in a gym mat.

America needs to demand these killers are brought to justice.

This is a lynching.

Who yall gonna use as your Rachel Jeantel to get an arrest? Benjamin Crump is being sued for $100 million for his Trayvon hoax - he sbould be disbarred. Get a decent attorney ffs.

I ll condense: Black man murdered in cold blood.

This looks worse than the Martin case. At least George Zimmerman called 9-11. It doesnt look like these guys had any interest in police support.

Blacks are believed to be inherently bad. That there is no goodness in us. We are not the wicked ones. We are the ones continuing to stand in love. The ones accepting of others because we know what abject hate feels like. We are the ones who will be vindicated one sweet day.

Lets wait until all the facts come out. Does not sound good, but I still want all the facts.

As a former prosecutor and having represented many victims--mostly Black--in police brutality claims, I dont think this case will go well for Arbery. The footage is not as unambiguous as one would like. I had a civil jury hang where the cop plead guilty to recklessly shooting.

What s even worse about this one (Trayvon s is horrific) is that there is video evidence. This evidence clearly shows Ahmaud out for a jog & the truck parked & waiting. The fact that the DA needs a grand jury to figure out whether to charge these murderers is criminal in itself.

Tragic! The sad part is that it gives ideas to other white racists to do the same without repercussions! The white people who committed this atrocity are sitting at home laughing and waiting to do it again! White privilege is what s wrong with our beautiful country!!!!
