Columbia University Student Will Drag Her Mattress Around Campus Until Her Rapist Is Gone

"I think the act of carrying something that is normally found in our bedroom out into the light is supposed to mirror the way I’ve talked to the media and talked to different news channels, etc," Emma continues in the full video which you can watch here. 

So, I just want to go into HOW MUCH Columbia and the NYPD has failed, and revictimized, Emma Sulkowitz.

In her school hearing, Sulkowitz ” had to explain to the three administrators on the panel how anal rape worked. She told them she had been hit across the face, choked and pinned down, but, she said, one still seemed confused about how it was possible for someone to penetrate her there without lubricant. Sulkowicz said she had to draw them a diagram.”

"Her best friend was meant to be at the hearing; Sulkowicz had chosen her as her one “supporter.” But her friend was kicked out of that role for talking about the case, according to Sulkowicz, in violation of the university’s confidentiality policy. As punishment, her friend was also put on probation and made to write two reflection papers: one from the perspective of Sulkowicz and another from the accused."

FROM THE PERSPECTIVE
OF HER FRIEND’S RAPIST

- Two other women at Columbia have accused this guy of sexual assault/rape. But he’s been found not responsible in all instances, and is still on campus

- When she went to the police, one officer said: “”You invited him into your room. That’s not the legal definition of rape.”

- Another officer told her friends, who came with her: ““For every single rape I’ve had, I’ve had 20 that are total bull——,” he added. “It’s also my type of job to get to the truth. If that means being harsh about it, that’s what I do.”

And that’s.
Why.
People.
Don’t.
REPORT.

I want to set literally everything on fire.

Also, it’s so so so so so important that people know that this happens ALL THE FUCKING TIME. This isn’t some rare singular or extreme case of injustice. We live in rape culture. This is considered acceptable in the system we live in. People make jokes about it. How could someone think this is funny?

Me on #FERGUSON at school

I cant even watch this. If a white person would have been shot by a black person in the same circumstances, there would never have been a problem. And why tf are you throwing bottles at cops? Stop rioting and destroying your town.

You just don’t get it do you white girl? And you never will you’re just sad

We want to step out of the racial bubble & yet black people want to be anti ALL white people, due to the actions caused by a group of ignorant fools.

Look here you pasty white heathen. Just cause YOU aren’t racist doesn’t mean That gives you an excuse to try to blame us for the subconscious Racist tendencies of white America

I’m gonna use a phrase white people LOVE using for black people

"One bad apple spoils the bunch"

Don’t try to tell us to be anti-white, when this country is ANTI-BLACK!

White-On-Black Murder In The New Millennium Is Rampan

By Terrell Jermaine Starr

While the election of a Black president was perhaps America’s best watershed moment of the new millennium, it has been an ruthlessly cruel period for African-American men killed at the hands of White men, be they police officers or regular citizens.

Most recently, 17-year-old unarmedTrayvon Martin was ruthlessly shot dead by George Zimmerman, a so-called neighborhood safety captain, in his gated community in Sanford, Fla. For now, Zimmerman is a free man because he has been neither charged nor arrested for the killing.

Unfortunately, this incident isn’t rarity.

There are many other stories of White-on-Black murder. For example, the New York Times ran a story about seven Black men killed by Miami Police within an eight-month time span in 2011.

The Federal Bureau Of Investigation (FBI)investigated 385 cases in 2009, in which law enforcement officials were accused of abusing their authority.

NewsOne has complied a list of video stories of Black men who have died at the hands of cops or men pretending to be them.  It is rare for a police officer to be convicted of killing an innocent victim, and sadly enough, these victims are almost always Black or Latino men.

Warning: Some of the videos show the actually killing of Black men.

1) Trayvon Martin was killed by George Zimmerman several weeks ago for apparently no real reason. (we are still trying to determine Zimmerman’s ethnicity)

2) Aaron Campbell was shot dead by police in January of 2010. Mother Jones magazinehas more:

The Oregonian reports that police say Campbell ignored their orders to put his hands up. At which point one officer fired six bean bag shots at his back. Witnesses say they saw Campbell reach his arm around his back, where the beanbag struck him. Officer Ronald Frashour says he saw Campbell reach both hands around his waistband to get a gun, and so he shot Campbell in the back with an assault rifle. “We feel that his death resulted from flawed police policies, incomplete or inappropriate training, incomplete communication and other issues with the police effort,” a jury wroteafter charging the police officer with no criminal wrongdoing.

3) Victor Steen was tazed and killed by a Pensacola police officer in October of 2009. Below is the video of the officer tazing and running over Steen with his car.

4) Los Angeles police shoot and kill 27-year-old Steven Eugene Washington in March of 2010. Family members say he is autistic, and it was confirmed that the young man was unarmed.

5) Oscar Grant was shot to death by a Bay Area Rapid Transit officer on January 1st of 2009. Mother Jones has more:

On New Years morning, three Bay Area Rapid Transit officers pull 22-year-old Oscar Grantand four other black men off a train in Oakland. You can view what happened afterwards in this Youtube video. In it, now former-transit officer Johannes Mehserlecan be seen shooting Grant in the back. During the trial, Mehserleargued that he thought Grant was reaching for a gun near his waistband. To stop this from happening, Mehserle said he intended to Tase him, but shot him with a pistol instead. He sentencedto two years of prison for the killing.Below is the actual video of the killing.

6) In January of 2012, Monterey Park, Calif., police shoot to death a man walking out of Carl J’s restaurant with a pipe. First, they taze him, but when that doesn’t work, they shoot him repeatedly, killing him instantly. Had this gentleman been a White man in a “well-to-do community,” would the officers have even drawn their weapons? Below is video of the killing.

7) On June 26th of 2011, James Craig Anderson is run over by white teenagers in Mississippi for no reason. CNN has more on the story:

On a recent Sunday morning just before dawn, two carloads of white teenagers drove to Jackson, Mississippi, on what the county district attorney says was a mission of hate: to find and hurt a black person. In a parking lot on the western side of town they found their victim. James Craig Anderson, a 49-year-old auto plant worker, was standing in a parking lot, near his car. The teens allegedly beat Anderson repeatedly, yelled racial epithets, including “White Power!” according to witnesses. Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith says a group of the teens then climbed into their large Ford F250 green pickup truck, floored the gas, and drove the truck right over Anderson, killing him instantly.

Below is video of the murder.

Of course, black-on-black violence is also unacceptable. But the problem with so many black men dying at the hands of police officers and white men is that it gives the impression that black life has no value. It is as if the police officers and white people who carry out these violent acts against black people feel they are living in Jim Crow-era Alabama, a time when whites felt free to enforce their own system of “justice.”

NewsOne is committed to bringing this senseless to the limelight. We are currently researching statistics and instances of black men being unjustly handled by law enforcement and by white men who feel their skintone is, in fact, the law.

Please stay tuned!
