Five Years On, Community Remembers Philando Castile
Racial Reckoning: The Arc of Justice
On July 5, 2016 a police officer shot and killed Philando Castile during a traffic stop in Falcon Heights. A jury failed to convict the officer. Still, Castile’s legacy lives on in the people he inspired. --Feven Gerezgiher reports:Five years ago today, a police officer shot and killed Philando Castile during a traffic stop in Falcon Heights. A jury failed to convict the officer. Still, Castile’s legacy lives on in the people he inspired.On Sunday, activists with Visual Black Justice led a theatrical performance created in response to his death. Participants marched along University Ave to the state capitol. They carried mock coffins, body bags, and tombstones engraved with names of victims of police brutality. Founder Athena Papagiannopoulos (Papa-gin-ah-polis) wants people to keep talking about policing, even when it’s not on the news.“Don't wait until it's someone you love or someone you know, or someone you kind of knew,” said Papagiannopoulos. “We have to come out here in the streets for these families and make sure we're preventing this situation from happening to more of our loved ones.”After Philando’s death, the Castile family created a foundation to support victims of gun and police violence. This evening, the family is hosting a candlelight vigil in his honor. To Castile’s former classmate Adrian Perryman, the commemoration serves to keep public safety on people’s minds.“I think doing something on the anniversary is a reminder, even if nothing has happened in the last week, last month, just keep that same energy that you had five years ago, and keep fighting until nothing happens like this, like what happened to George Floyd and other individuals in the community,” said Perryman.Castile was beloved by students in Saint Paul schools, where he was known to pay for their lunches when they couldn’t afford it.In 2016, Perryman and other Central High School alumni created a college scholarship in Castile’s name that has since funded four students. The scholarship is geared towards encouraging black men to pursue careers in education.

The Breakdown with Shaun King
On today's episode of @TheBreakdown I unpack and explain how police brutality is a math problem. African Americans are forced to interact with police FAR too much. And by drastically reducing these number of forced interactions, we will, by default, reduce the incidents of police brutality as well. Racism is deeply baked into the fiber of America. It's full embedded in our systems and structures of policing. And it's not a bug, but a key feature. So much so that I don't think it will ever be extracted from these systems. So, one sure fire way to reduce police violence in America is to reduce the number of times people interact with police altogether. As it is in the rest of the world. This podcast is produced by The North Star, a Black-owned and operated independent media platform for liberation-journalism.

BONUS: Breonna Taylor, Philando Castile, Maj Toure and Black Guns Matter
Once we finished speaking about relationship anarchy, Candace Owens, and the 20 Senators' letter demanding the FDA ban the abortion pill for Episode 6 and with the mics still live, our conversation turned to Justice for Breonna Taylor, gun culture in working and middle class white families, Maj Toure and his organization Black Guns Matter, and how legally carrying a gun did not protect Philando Castile. It didn't make it into episode 6 because it was off topic and very conversational which is not in line with our vision. We just don't want to be a "two people sitting around having a conversation for an hour" type of show. There are lots out there & we even listen to a few of them! We're here for women who have plenty of demands on their time already. We want to stick to the topic and deliver a to-the-point, succinct show that doesn't waste any of your precious time. But the conversation was real, authentic, and might even be a challenge to listen to so we're releasing it as a bonus. You might want to give us a piece of your mind after listening in and we're here for it. If you've got something to say in response to this bonus, call and leave us a voicemail at 512-766-4744. #JusticeForBreonna #BlackLivesMatter #BlackGunsMatter #2A --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/jusaposition/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jusaposition/support
