Congratulations to Ivy Taylor, who was elected this week and made history as the first ever African American mayor of San Antonio, Texas! On Tuesday Taylor announced her plans to improve the city, and said, “I’ve always been committed to working with everyone in our community, even though we may not always agree on every issue.”

Eric Garner was killed by officers after he broke up a fight. He was put in chokehold after being accused of selling untaxed cigarettes…. His MURDER was recorded and has been circulating the internet. In the video he cried out, ” I can’t breathe.” When will the harassment end? Why are the officers involved on desk duty and not behind bars? Our deepest condolences go out to Mr. Garner’s family. #share #ripericgarner
