Recy Taylor never stopped fighting for racial justice

Get to know Recy Taylor: Raped at 24, her assailants weren't prosecuted and her family was terrorized, but she never stopped fighting for justice and was instrumental in the Civil Rights movement.

    If she was a white gal then justice would have prevailed

    They did the same thing to the Hawaiian people. They did the same thing to the Indians. Money creates an evil power. But in the long run their money and evilness feeds their own fire

    The long road to justice even in present dispensation is pretty far off.

    Somebody out there saying this is race-baiting. Now they need to sit back and try to Define that word for a second like for instance does it mean you want the shut the past up so it doesn't piss off certain people? Or does it mean you know what has transpired to make people so angry and bitter because you know it was your race that perpetrated such violent acts and say get over it . Hell no!! Just like we should never get over 9/11 we definitely shouldn't get over this.

    Thank you, Brut. I'm so proud to have made a video with you about my life earlier this year. You provide the best video content -- period. This woman's story must be heard. We must confront misogyny, violence and systemic racism. We must recognize Racy's courage to speak the truth.
