Gardening While Black

DETROIT, MI. What happens when a couple racist Anglo-American (i,e, white women) move in the neighborhood, get together deciding they don't want you there? They call the police on an innocent black man for no reason and HE GETS ARRESTED ON FRAUDULENT CHARGES WITH ABSOLUTELY NO PROOF!!!

Deborah Nash, Jennifer Morris and Martha Callahan told officers a local urban gardener was a pedophile, was threatening them and even pulled a gun out on them (police footage shows that when the THREE squad cars arrived he was raking leaves)! In court they CRIED and LIED their asses off. These white women with self inflated egos thought they could send this man to jail for NO REASON to get their way. After fumbling multiple lies on the stand, discrediting one another and explaining how RBG colors are offensive and gang related, they tucked their tails and ran. Not even watching for the verdict of NOT GUILTY after dealing with their harassment for OVER A YEAR. They wasted EVERYONES time, money and resources to falsely discredit this mans name.

This man has lost wages, contracts, business opportunities etc. He has spent thousands on bonds, fee and lawyers. These women have taken farm supplies and done everything in their power to prevent this community garden from happening. We appreciate all donations to improve the farm (that has been sitting idle for SEVEN MONTHS as this man fought for his rights). These women harassed this man for over  a year, it should have never even made it this far, but it did and we are moving forward rebuilding our community.

NOTE: As stated in the update, I am a close friend of Mr. Peeples (who has been added as a team member on this GoFundMe) and reside in Detroit, MI. I am an avid volunteer at his garden site, even tending to the site as much as possible during the trial when he was unable to be on the premises. I have been a witness to this entire ordeal since day one and started this donation page because he deserves better. The kind words and support is very much appreciated and these donations will go directly to Mr. Peeples to be used at his discretion.
