Another post simply read, “If you aren’t uncomfortable then you aren’t listening.”

Turners highlighted the story of Emerald Black, a pregnant woman who just filed a lawsuit against the police for allegedly pushing her to the ground and stomping on her belly, causing her to have a miscarriage, according to The Mercury News.

“Swipe up to sign the petition calling for an investigation into the police officers responsible,” she added.

“I mean they’ve been arrested and charge [sic] with murder so there justice sooooo can we have peace now?” commented one person.

Turner responded, “This isn’t just about those 4 caps, this is about Breonna Taylor, this is about Trayvon Martin, this is about Eric Garner, this is about the systemic racism that Black people have faced for hundreds and hundreds of years. This is about changing the system. Justice will be done when society reflects our beliefs that we are all equal. Until then there should be no peace.”
