#CrimingWhileWhite Goes Viral

#CrimingWhileWhite Explodes On Twitter Following Eric Garner Decision

The grand jury decision not to bring charges in the chokehold death of Eric Garner, announced Wednesday, was followed with public demonstrations in cities across the nation — and the Internet. Thousands of tweeters are up in arms against racial profiling and police brutality in America, issues that have been hard to ignore amid recent protests over the police killings of Michael Brown, Ezell Ford, Akai Gurley and others.

#BlackLivesMatter and #HandsUpDontShoot have played a large role in addressing these issues on social media, but there's a new hashtag in town: #CrimingWhileWhite.

Instead of highlighting incidents of prejudice against people of color, #CrimingWhileWhite quickly zeroed in on White privilege, straight from the mouths of those who know it best.
