Honestly, between Iyanna Dior and Oluwatoyin Salau, we really can’t be anything but 110% understanding when a Black woman decides to just stay home anytime something happens to a Black man (esp a Black cis-hetero man)

She was 19! Oluwatoyin Salau DESERVED TO LIVE! She was speaking and supporting ALL BLACK LIVES! She was young and should’ve never had to experience what happened to her. My heart hurts. She was a sister, a friend, a daughter. We must not forget her. SAY HER NAME! Broken heart✊

Oluwatoyin Salau could have been fuckin saved. She could have been protected. At the end of those protests who was out here offering her shelter? Y’all recording her face and listening to her pain but nobody asked “after this where are you staying? Do you have food are you ok?”

RIP Oluwatoyin Salau Crying face

Black women do not deserve this. Imagine being 19 protesting for the lives of black men only to be assaulted and killed.

Toyin was literally betrayed by those who were supposed to protect her. Shit is devastating.

Some of Oluwatoyin Salau’s last moments were protesting in support of Black lives, just to be sexually assaulted by a Black man & now she’s dead.

It shouldn’t take something like this to learn not to negate Black women’s experiences BUT this is a teachable moment.

This beautiful young woman was found dead today after going missing, and the police are hiding why. She was a prominent protestor, often photographed.

Stop taking pictures of people at protests. Stop taking selfies at protests. Facial recognition is real, and this isn’t your moment to start your activist or photographer rebrand. Moving forward, anyone who takes pictures at this point at a protest without any care in the world of how the subjects in the pictures look should not be trusted because they do not care about you or your life.

Just so you guys know, we’ve lost a sister just yesterday. Her name was Oluwatoyin Salau. She was 19 guys. 19 years old, literally a teen like me. She was an activist and she spent her final days fighting for our community just for it to be taken by one of our own. She was sexually abused by a black man and after speaking out about it on twitter, hours later she went missing and now she’s dead. WE NEED TO PROTECT BLACK WOMEN AND GIRLS. We are the most disrespected, unprotected in the world. please protect us. RIP Oluwatoyin ❤️ #justiceforToyin
