2020 is soul shattering. i’ve been on many boats. dive boats. whale watching boats. speedboats. sailboats. boats where I’m not just the only Black passenger, but the only woman. i’m alive. but they’re people on this app blaming Elijah Weatherspoon for his death. death shaming…this 18 year old kid thought he was safe. safe among people he thought were friends. he didn’t willingly march towards death. something happened on that boat. long before he ended up in the water.

    I hope you are able to find the truth and justice for Elijah. If somebody beside Elijah has been negligent there must be a real investigation not a blank report with no witnesses. All lives matter?
