50 Black women have been killed by the police since 2015. Most of the officers who shot them didn’t face consequences.

For years, activists and researchers have called out how often people overlook Black women killed by the police in the United States.

of campaigns at Color Of Change, a nonprofit civil-rights group.

Adam Sandler Is a Fashion Sensation on TikTok

Everyone knows that trends are cyclical. Styles come in—we buy them, get sick of them, and they live in our closets, untouched and mildew-y, until we finally work up the courage to get rid of them.
