Saw this on the way to class and had to fix it. 🖌 the problem is things like “blue lives matter” and “all lives matter” are direct responses to black people saying “my life matters”. we cannot examine our own worth without being met with hostility. if all lives truly mattered we would not have to declare our existence in such a way. this is what it is. don’t comment because i’m not explaining it. #allblacklivesmatter

the hough riots were race riots in the predominantly african american community of hough (pronounced "huff") in cleveland, ohio that took place over a 6 -night period from july 18 to july 23, 1966.
during the riots, 4 african americans were killed and 30 people were critically injured. in addition, there were 275 arrests, while more than 240 fires were reported.
the riots caused more people (and jobs) to leave the area, which suffered decades of disinvestment. since the late 1990s, there has been some redevelopment.
start of the riots:
on july 18, 1966, during the evening, someone posted a sign outside the 79'ers bar, situated on the southeast corner of e.79th street and hough avenue. the sign read, "no water for niggers". adding to the volatility of the situation, the bar manager and a hired hand, both white, patrolled the front of the bar, armed with shotguns. an african american woman described as a "prostitute" was seeking money for charity. an altercation occurred and she was told to leave. later, an african american man entered the building and bought a bottle of wine. when he asked for a glass of water, he was told that blacks were not being served.
soon after, a crowd of about fifty people gathered outside. the cleveland police department arrived, in force, to defuse the situation. the presence of the cpd only intensified the crowd's anger.
as angry crowds gathered over a 23-block area, chants of "black power" were followed by the throwing of rocks and molotov cocktails, bringing more than 300 police and firemen.
racial tension was high between cleveland's police and african american community. the arrival of police precipitated gunfire, as well as brick-throwing by angry residents. the police shot out some street lights and asked drivers to turn off their car lights to limit possible targets by snipers.
joyce arnett, a black 26-year-old mother of three, was shot dead when she called from a window, as she was trying to get permission to go home and check on her children.

July 17, 2014: #ericgarner is murdered by nypd officers using an illegal chokehold.
at approximately 3:30 p.m., garner was approached by a plainclothes police officer, justin damico, in front of a beauty supply store at 202 bay street in tompkinsville, staten island.
according to bystanders, including ramsey orta, a friend of garner's who recorded the incident on his cell phone, garner had just broken up a fight, which may have drawn the attention of the police—although garner may also have been selling "loosies" (single cigarettes without a tax stamp) in violation of new york state law.
garner is heard on the video saying, "get away for what? every time you see me, you want to mess with me. i'm tired of it. it stops today. why would you...? everyone standing here will tell you i didn't do nothing. i did not sell nothing. because every time you see me, you want to harass me. you want to stop me selling cigarettes. i'm minding my business, officer, i'm minding my business. please just leave me alone. i told you the last time, please just leave me alone." when pantaleo approached garner from behind and attempted to handcuff him, garner swatted his arms away, saying "don't touch me, please." pantaleo then put garner in a chokehold—which is prohibited by nypd regulations—from behind.
pantaleo then pulled garner backward in an attempt to bring him to the ground; in the process, pantaleo and garner slammed into a glass window, which did not break.
as garner was being brought to the ground, other uniformed officers surrounded him, and garner went to his knees and forearms and did not say anything for a few seconds. at that point, 3 uniformed officers and the two plainclothes officers had surrounded him.
after 15 seconds, the video showed pantaleo had removed his arm from around garner's neck; pantaleo then used his hands to push garner's face into the sidewalk.
garner is heard saying "i can't breathe" 11 times while lying facedown on the sidewalk.
the arrest was supervised by a female african american nypd sergeant, kizzy adoni, who did not intercede.
adoni was quoted in the original police report as stating, "the perpetrator's condition did not seem
