Erica Garner, activist and daughter of Eric Garner, has passed away. She was the mother of two and only 27 years old.

The New York Daily News reported she suffered an asthma attack on December 23, which caused a heart attack. Erica did not know she had heart issues until her last pregnancy in August, “after that pregnancy, Erica suffered a first cardiac arrest a few months ago, her mother said. The pregnancy had put a strain on her heart, which doctors discovered was enlarged — a condition Erica had not been aware of.” Sadly, Erica never fully recovered and passed away this morning. Her family confirmed the news on Twitter:

Erica Garner was the daughter of Eric Garner, who was killed on July 17, 2014, when an NYPD officer restrained him with an illegal chokehold. The killing was caught on camera with Garner repeatedly saying, “I can’t breathe.” The officer was never indicted.

Erica was an activist for social justice. She even campaigned for Senator Bernie Sanders‘ run for president and blasted the Clinton campaign when leaked emails revealed her father’s death was being considered as a talking point. Here is one of Erica’s most famous tweets:

Our condolences go out to Erica Garner’s friends, family and supporters.

  1. The pregnancy had put a strain on her heart, which doctors discovered was enlarged — a condition Erica had not been aware of.

    Erica was also unaware that smoking Crack, would cause an enlarged heart.

    Like her father before her, Erica’s last words to the Police was, “I can’t breathe.”

    Martin Luther Pig jr was neither a dr nor a reverend. This is 100 TRUE! HE was a communist fraud
    *****
    And still the most admired, celebrated icon on earth who has a street name after him in every state, a nobel prize, a statue & his own holiday a black man. In just a matter of 2 weeks Republikkkan politicians your racist POS president included all will be bowing down paying homage to the Great Dr. Martin Luther King jr.

  3. Blacks have been artificially pumped through the the caste system for 50 years now. Affirmative action, sharpton all crucial pieces of the caste system used to discriminate against white people. Martin Luther Pig jr was neither a dr nor a reverend. This is 100 TRUE! HE was a communist fraud who routinely picked up white prostitutes. 200 points on sats, lowest iq of any race by far.

    • I can neither confirm or deny the white prostitutes, so I will avoid that topic, but there is empirical data that confirm our IQ standing among other races, and it ain’t pretty. 200 points for being black on SAT, also true. It appears that we don’t want to follow King’s teaching and be judged by the content of our character.

    • So a Nubian Princess is defined by a single black mother, unemployed, and a product of criminal parents? Wow, has our bar been lowered

    • RIP Angel march with your father and we will not stop fighting. For you racist pigs with the nasty comment Kiss our Black asses you pink face ugly pigs. Black Live Matter they are just mad we are coming together and are not afraid of them anymore we are not going back we don’t give a fuck who’s in the White House. Black Power
