In another case of no black person is safe doing anything anywhere, Martese Johnson, a black student at the University of Virginia, was thrown to the ground and beaten in public by law enforcement because he tried to use a fake ID. Onlookers filmed the incident and noted that Johnson did not try to resist arrest.
.Graduate student Maya Hislop told [Jezebel], “Black students on grounds are highly familiar with this kind of abuse (denied access to places, checking IDs of black students and not checking IDs of white students), but I do not know that it has ever been this violent.
Ever hear of this kind of treatment of a cute white girl trying to get into a club? Yeah, we didn’t think so. Students are outraged and have been protesting and speaking out on campus.
Team Blackness also discussed an update to the strange San Diego case of a gang conspiracy law, where gang members can be charged with a crime even if they weren’t involved but somehow indirectly benefited from it in some way.
