May is Mental Health Awareness month! On this episode I mention some alarming statistics of how black americans struggle with mental health issues. In 2018, 58% of Black American young adults 18-25 and 50% of adults 26-49 with serious mental illness did not recieve treatment. These statistics are closely associated with the common stigma among black culture that mental health is taboo. We wear a mask because we have to be strong even when we don't want to. It is important to find a healthy space to let it all out. It is ok to cry but it is bad to hold it in.

On this episode I talk about the unique testimonies during the Derek Chauvin trial. Testimonies from other officers, children young as 10 years old, 911 dispatchers, and others played a major part in the trial and conviction. Does Derek Chauvin's conviction represent a changing of the times when it comes to law enforce and accountability? As of May 2020 Derek Chauvin became the first white police officer in Minnesota to be charged in the death of a black civilian. Officers rarely testify against other officers, due to the culture of backlash they get from their peers when doing so.Are testimonies similar to this trial the secret to greater accountability with law enforcement?The shooting of Ma'Khia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio has left people with a lot of mixed emotions. The story behind her shooting has conflicted one another and the body camera footage released shows her attacking another girl with a knife. Though this evidence paints her as an aggressor there are mentions that she came from an abusive environment with her foster parents and she contacted the police because her life was in danger.No matter the source or the situation, Ma'Khia Bryant's life mattered.Black Lives Matter!Follow me on Instagram @CheeseburgerLive
