Another way of understanding Bland, in her own words, is through the videos she posted to Facebook as part of a series called "Sandy Speaks." There, she grapples with racism in America, police brutality, and other concerns of the Black Lives Matter movement. In one April 2015 video, she says, "being a black person in America is very, very hard." She goes on to challenge the "all lives matter" rhetoric built up in response to the Black Lives Matter movement. "Show me in American history where all lives have mattered," she says. Portentously, she adds: "We have seen as of late, you can stand there, surrender to the cops and still be killed." The videos are, among other things, poignant, sincere, funny (in the very first one announcing the series she playfully apologizes for how her hair looks), confused, and contradictory—as they should be when wrestling with issues as complex as race in America. They are transmissions that, along with her sister Sharon Cooper's words, give us a better sense of Sandra Bland, the person.
