Four years ago, Lizzie Widdicombe profiled then-fourteen-year-old Tavi Gevinson, writing: 

"Though the fashion world is accustomed to both youth and eccentricity, Tavi is a rare spectacle. Seeing her moving through the scrum backstage at a fashion show, elaborately costumed and surrounded by paparazzi, brings to mind a religious procession involving a Buddhist child deity."

Good morning Fam:

I’m so sorry to hit you with horrific news so early in the morning, and on a Saturday no less, but this is too egregious to ignore.

The police officer who raped EIGHT BLACK WOMEN is free on bond today.

The question that is burning a whole in my mind is: WHY WAS THERE BOND IN THE FIRST PLACE?

This man is a CLEAR menace to society. He is CLEARLY a danger to black women.

And yet—the judge REDUCED his bond from $5 million to $500,000 even though the prosecutor argued how much of a lit stick of dynamite this man is JUST so this shit puddle can go free.

This is irrefutable proof of how white supremacy operates when it has perceived that one of its own is evil and might be held accountable for that evil. All sense it thrown out of the window and innocence, which is to say Whiteness, circles in on itself.

This is proof how little the suffering of black women matters in this country.

If nothing else this year deserves a march, we need to march to have the judge on this case removed from the bench and have this rapist’s (and possible murderer) bond revoked.

PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION TO HAVE HIS BAIL REVOKED:
