#JusticeForBenKeita: Black Muslim teen found hanged near Seattle

In November, 18 yo Ben Keita's family reported him missing. His body was found in January in the woods. A medical examiner initially ruled that his death was a suicide. but the rope was tied 50 feet up the tree where his body was found.

Just about to graduate high school. Had so much of life ahead of him. All of it cut short. WE DEMAND FULL INVESTIGATION.

Being black and Muslim you face double-edged system racism. This child's death was almost immediately ruled as suicide.
