These Black Women Died In Police Encounters, And May Never Get Justice

In all likelihood, Sandra Bland would still be alive today if she’d been a white woman.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders no indictments regarding Bland’s deathin a Texas jail cell this summer.

Bland was found dead in her jail cell in Waller County, Texas, on July 13 after she was arrested, ostensibly for a traffic violation. Authorities said her death was a suicide, but her family — and black activists everywhere — vehemently disputed the finding at the time, and many remain dubious.
