This is going to be a long one:
These are only a few of so many lives lost to police brutality and systemic racism. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tamir Rice, Tony McDade, Sandra Bland. But the message is hopefully clear. Black lives matter. A system that consistently shows it does not value the lives of its black and brown people can not be tolerated. We must do better.
Everyone please be careful. Be aware. Please take care of each other. Do what you can. Do not underestimate the ignorance, malice and manipulative behavior of those in power. The very pandemic that has killed so many has been weaponized to punish those who are able to protest. Wash your hands, wear your masks, quarantine when able.
If you can use your power, use your privilege, lift up the voices of others then do so. Don’t expect to be patted on the back for doing what is right.
Thank you for sticking it out till the end of this post. If you are in need of resources in LA please reach out to me and I will help research for you. If you need photos from protests to be edited to censor identifiable protesters reach out and I will work my photoshop magic. If you have links or info to share please drop it in the comments. Stay safe. Much love.
