What do America’s mass shootings have in common? Guns, yes. But also, boys.
The scale and darkness of this epidemic is a sign of a civilization in a more acute crisis than we knew.

From Zerlina Maxwell

And as @jacksontkatz aptly pointed out, if mental health was to blame then 50% of mass shootings would be committed by girls but they aren’t.

Toxic masculinity + easy access to weapons of war are to blame.


Let’s get with the program and start discussing this like adults.

Rest well, Gwendolyn.

We remember the columnist, doctor, advocate, and friend of ESSENCE.
The evaporation of long-term psychiatric facilities in the U.S. has escalated over the past decade, sparked by a trend toward deinstitutionalization of mental h
“A sick, demented man.” That was Donald Trump’s assessment of Stephen Paddock, who shot nearly 600 people, leaving 58 dead, during a concert in Las Vegas earlier this month.

Like lunch counter racism during Civil Rights, whatever. The young lady losing it is a typical feeling and behavior after encountering that bigotry.

Hey facebook friends and family I need your help reposting this. Especially in black history month black people cannot continue to be treated this way. My frien...d and I were shopping at the independence center in independence, Missouri(Near Kansas City), when we were done we decided to get a bite to eat at Applebee’s. About an hour into out dinner we were approached by a Independence police officer, a mall cop, and the restaurant manager. We were told that we were accused of eating and not paying for CHICKEN the day before (dining and dashing). Mind you that we have proof that can show our whereabouts and it’s not even in our character to steal. After being mocked, humiliated, and embarrassed we were asked to pay for our food, leave, and not come back. After leaving, calls were made to the restaurant and the manager stated that our accuser remembered that there was a SKINNY girl and a girl who wore MAKEUP. In 2018 is this really what we’re debased to? Our weight and whether or not we wore makeup. She could not recognize any facial features or any defining characteristics . This is a clear example of RACIAL PROFILING that should not be stood for. Just because we are black does not mean we are all criminals and I will not be treated as such. #repost Applebee's Grill & Bar
