Their Names

Michael Brown. Sandra Bland. Trayvon Martin. Tamir Rice. Eric Gardner. Alton Sterling. Philando Castile. Korryn Gaines. Breonna Taylor. George Floyd. Rayshard Brooks. Stephon Clark. These are the names that are forever burned in our brains; but the forgotten names are the ones that have suffered the most tragically. This page will aim to remember those names.

I would like to add that certain groups like the NAACP, Black Lives Matter, ACLU, and their supporters, seem to cry the loudest when a black person meets an unfortunate end at the hands of a white person (most likely a police officer), but are strangely silent about the reports of black folks who meet an untimely end at the hands of another black person or the lives of children and others whose lives are cut down by senseless violence.

This list will be populated with those names. Help us to remember Their Names.
