JUSTICE MALALA: In this black republic black lives don't matter
'No one said a word. They starved to death. The carers said not a single truthful word. They stayed silent about their deaths and their reasons for them'
“I CAN'T breathe.” These words haunt me. They were uttered 11 times by Eric Garner on July 17 2014. A New York City police officer confronted Garner and accused him of selling “loosies” [illegally-acquired loose cigarettes]. Garner told him he had enough of constant harassment about this when he was in fact not selling cigarettes.
