My name is Alex & I'm a college student currently located in Austin, TX. I'm interested in books, horror films, indie comics, gaming, cute animals & smashing the capitalist patriarchy.
I am a light-skinned WOC, able-bodied, cis.
The only feminism that matters is intersectional.
Some Ground Rules:
- This blog is racist, ableist, sexist, fatphobic, queerphobic, and transphobic free and I will tolerate no one who brings these things into my space
- I don't mind answering questions or asks about social justice topics but please remember that I am not here specifically to educate you or anybody else
- I will gladly tag all of my posts if anybody feels triggered or uncomfortable by what I blog but again please remember that this is my blog and I will always put my own safety and mental health first
- This is my space and if you respect me then I will respect you. Simple as that.
Bronx community mourns man shot dead by NYPD September 8, 2012
Earlier today, 20-year-old Bronx Resident, Reynaldo Cuevas was shot and killed by an NYPD officer outside the bodega where he works. According to witnesses, Cuevas had tripped while attempting to escape an armed robbery inside the bodega. Immediately after, a 42nd precinct officer shot his gun, killing Cuevas, who was later dragged by the officer some 20-feet along the sidewalk.
Afterwards community members took to the streets in anger, later marching to the nearby precinct and ending the evening on the corner where Cuevas was shot.
The shooting occurred just one block away from where unarmed 19-year-old Jateik Reed was recently beaten by 42nd precinct officers.
