The photos included Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, Botham Jean, Ahmaud Arbery, Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin.
Thankfully, Original Black Panthers took down photos of six African American victims found hanging from a tree in Milwaukee’s Riverside Park.
The laminated photos were tied with nooses. smh.
Saturday evening these photos were removed.
Four of the six died at the hands of police.
The Original Black Panthers called the photos racist.
“Historically, African Americans have been hung and lynched,” activist King Rick said. “I don’t care what anybody says, they can justify it all they want to. It was disrespectful not only to the memories of these individuals — our beloved individuals — but also to the African American community, so I’m not hearing it.”
They said the act was intolerable and unacceptable.
It’s not clear who hung the photos from the tree or why.
Police have not said whether they are investigating.
