Rhetorical Hashtags: #IfTheyGunnedMeDown

Rhetorical #ashtags:

If They Gunned Me Down…
…Which Photo would they use?

All of this is in response to the Mike Brown shooting and the simmering rage on Twitter about the public outcry & the police response. Some which is being channeled into tackling the issue of how African-Americans are portrayed by the media and holding them accountable. This reminds me of the #DangerousBlackKids that sprung up after the verdict for the murderer in the Jordan Davis case. Or Renisha McBride. The list is so long, and these occurrences so sad – but I’m heartened by the response of the twitterverse in reminding us that: “Representation Matters.”
