A new social media tool is making it extremely and soberingly clear how racism threatens the safety of black Americans.

Mark Yourself Unsafe, a web app that Black Lives Matter organizers modeled after Facebook Safety Check, allows black social media users to symbolically mark themselves “unsafe” throughout the entire United States. The tool officially launched on Jan. 17, and it serves to highlight the current threats the black community faces across the nation – from economic inequality to police violence and countless other forms of racial bias.
