Morbid reminders of America’s racist past pops up on one of the country’s most prestigious centers for secondary education
While the majority of the country had their eyes on the protests going on around the nation in disapproval of the no indictment decisions rendered by Missouri and New York grand juries in regards to the deaths of Mike Brown and Eric Garner this past weekend, the University of California At Berkeley’s campus had a racial incident that reminds us all that to some, it’s still about race.
Three cardboard effigies of Black people, one man and two women, were found hanging in “prominent locations” around the UC Berkeley campus this weekend. The cardboard cutouts were printed with the victims’ images, date of their deaths, and the “I Can’t Breathe” slogan, which has become an iconic statement since the surge of police killings in 2014.
Authorities have no suspects and have yet to connect anyone to the lynching images. TheSource.com will keep you updated on this story as it develops.
