is anyone watching “time: the kalief browder story”?
it comes on spike tv at 10pm on wednesdays,
but it also re-broadcasts after “the quad” on bet at 11pm.
it’s a 6 part documentary produced by jay z and harvey weinstein.
it’s a must watch,
in my honest opinion…
so kalief browder from the bx.
that’s the bronx in new yawk.
he was 16 years old when he was snatched up by the nypd,
falsely accused of stealing someone’s backpack,
and sent to riker’s island where he spent 3 years.
riker’s island is a maximum security prison.
it’s no fuckin’ joke over there.
why is a sixteen year old even there to begin with?
hardcore criminals are sent there to serve their sentences.
well he was continuously jumped and assaulted by guards and prisoners.
he was basically tortured in there.
the worst part is he spent most of his sentence in solitary confinement.
that played a part in how he lost his mind.
well kalief committed suicide after being released due to his ordeal.
his last words to his mother was:
i can’t take it anymore.”
the documentary takes us through his life,
and the injustice that he faced.
shit like this happens every day to black males across the country.
i really NEED you to watch this documentary.
i’m going to post the 2 episodes courtesy of mr world premiere:
i would love to read your thoughts about it.
don’t think because you’re gay/bi/attentionisto that it can’t happen to you.
i love you all.
