Hi @Spoutible ,
I haven't received any engagement since Oct 15. Is my account working correctly?
Thanks.

Hi everyone, I've had no engagement on my posts since Oct 15 and my followers/follow figures have changed since Oct 13 (which is unusual for me).

I'm wondering if my posts are visible. Can you indicate if you can see this post? (e.g. like and/or comment.) Thanks. 🙏

Sickening is the only word that comes to mind here... #LeonardCure had been exonerated after being wrongfully imprisoned for 16 years, only to die on Monday at the hands of a Georgia policeman.

He had just bought his first home.

The man had been wrongfully in prison for years before he was released and then fatally shot by a Georgia trooper.

"Most people still don’t know the name of an important anti-apartheid hero — a man named Dimitri Tsafendas (pronounced “Sa-fendas”); [today] October 7th marks the 24th anniversary of his death in a psychiatric hospital."

There are no reasonable explanations for this "disappearance" – other than foul play, and there are many indications that this was racially-motivated.

My mother has just published her #autobiography :

"In 'Not Belonging,' she sets out to explore her own life from early childhood through to her 70s, attempting through 're-living' her experiences, to come to terms with her past, & to see how it has shaped who she is today."

Despite the fact that Black people found hanging from trees bear all the hallmarks of a #hatecrime , it seems that the modern police have 2 default responses:

1) no reason to suspect foul play;
2) this was a suicide.
