    Hundreds of people gather in a vigil to honour and remember Tina Fontaine and Faron Hall; both are first nations who were recently found deceased. Tina Fontaine was found in a bag in the river, murdered.

    Media reports have come in saying that those marching have filled Portage and Main in Winnipeg.

    We need to combat racism and prevent further violence and death to first nations people, but especially women. Canadians should not forget about this.

Watch: Enraging Craigslist experiment finds people are cool with racism for cheap rent  

Are people okay with housing discrimination if it doesn’t directly affect them? Or, going one step further, if it benefits them?
YouTube comedy duo the Lie Guys explore this matter in a telling, five-minute video. The pair set up their experiment by offering up a cheap apartment rental on Craigslist. In a series of Skype interviews, they then ask four potential tenants — two white and two Latino — if they’d be fine moving into the attractively priced $400 room in Hollywood, Calif. under the following rules: “No cats, no dogs, no black people” and “just make sure that you take your shoes off when you walk in” (Italics added for emphasis).
This symbolizes a much bigger problem

African-American Girls &amp; Women Killed By Police: Speak Their Names. See Their Faces. Know Their Stories.
There is this false myth going around that Black women are not victims of police violence. I believe the myth exists because quite frankly the media, social justice organizations and we the public tend not to focus on it. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy. I hope this post will make all of us change our minds. Here are the stories of some of the Black women and girls killed by law enforcement:
Adaisha Miller, Detroit Woman, Hugged Cop From Behind
LAPD cop charged with assault in death of Alesia Thomas
7-year- old Aiyana Stanley-Jones – Detroit Free Press
