Politini Recap: The Criminalization of Black Girls

Too often in our society we forget about our Black girls.

From treating them like they’re stronger than they are when they’re young, and then tearing them down to be weak when they’re grown, does the world care about the fate of our Black girls? If not, who are our little sister’s keepers? We ask these questions and many, many more in our latest #Politini episode: School Discipline and the Criminalization of Black Girls.

This week as we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, we were also reminded our right to vote is still something we have to fight for. In this Hip-Hop infused video, we get down to the bottom of why Republicans don’t want YOU to vote.
