Krip-Hop Nation’s Youtube new (12/16) slideshow series on Police Brutality Against People with Disabilities is a visual awareness of victims with disabilities from youth to elders of all colors, all types of disabilities, of all genders/nonbinary gender.
The reason why Krip-Hop Nation started this ongoing Youtube slideshow series is because people with all types of disabilities make up 70% of police brutality cases however society, media, movements, some families, some lawyers/activists and the courts continue to overlook or hush hush the disability angle of many police brutality cases and we don’t see full picture of this issue and ourselves as activists in movements against police brutality especially people of color with disabilities who are poor. Of course we can’t highlight every case but we try our best to give you many pictures of disabled victims of police brutality. So far we have focus on the victims however we hope to also do a slideshow on activists with disabilities who have been not only protesting on this issues but also have created cultural outlets, have created media on it and have supported families.
A lot of us, people, mainstream media, activists and so on think when there are cases of police brutality and people with disabilities it’s only people with mental health disability and are ambulatory, NOT TURE AS THIS SERIES POINTS OUT!! No, mainstream media and some activists, autism is not a mental health disability yes any individual can have multiple disabilities however we must correct people when they erase and mislabel us & that includes the media.
Each slideshow has a list of names of the victims and some slideshows have their age. So far we have created 4 slideshows and we are looking to do many more.
First slideshow on Youtube is focusing on Krip-Hop Nation’s work with visuals of Krip-Hop art, flyers and CD around the issue, protests that happened and pics of Black & Brown men with disabilities who were victims of police brutality. The second slideshow is on Police Brutality Against Black Disabled Trans/Non-Trans women & girls. Krip-Hop Nation’s 3rd Slideshow is on Police Brutality Against People with Disabilities focusing on people who are/were wheelchair users. Krip-Hop Nation’s 4th slideshow on Police Brutality Against People with Disabilities is on Autistic people from adults to youth. We are creating a slideshow on Deaf people & police brutality in early 2017.
