Every day, African-Americans in law enforcement maintain the balance of advocating for justice in their community while promoting the well-being of fellow officers. Timothy Knight, a retired sergeant with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD), realized this when he noticed two sub groups among other African-American officers. One sub group, he stated, assimilates into the “dominant discourse” or culture in order to grow and move up in rank and opportunities.
Media outlets across the country have been filled with coverage of the aftermath of police-action shootings, especially those that have led to the deaths of unarmed African-Americans, such as the June shooting of Indianapolis resident Aaron Bailey.Activists have demanded justice for the victims and their families to protect “Black lives,” while others have called for more understanding of police officers who face daily threats to “blue lives.” Seeing both sides of the issue are Black police...
Sometimes we have to wait decades to see justice. At other times, it comes almost immediately. Many people would say that justice prevailed in 1967, exactly 50 years ago, when Richard G. Hatcher was elected mayor of Gary, Indiana. He made history that day by becoming Indiana’s first African-American mayor. Hatcher also became one of the first Black mayors of a major U.S. city, since Gary was Indiana’s second largest city at the time and the hub of a major industrial area.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
