This Is Why They Protest

****

What separates the police from burglars, murderers, etc., who do innocent citizens harm? At this point, they are one and the same

****

Violent actions by the police sent a Black protester to the hospital but the white protesters breaking curfew get pleaded with. Welcome to America

****

****

For those saying “technically, it could happen.” Because you know, Black people are supermen and superwomen who can break our spines in two places, crush our larynx, break our leg, and cause a brain bleed all while handcuffed (arms behind our backs) and lying face down in a van. Miss me with that BS

****

****

To protect and serve? Yeah, right

****

A curfew can’t even be applied as intended…*Sigh*

Chuck Todd is a scumbag

Nancy LeTourneau: What Can We Do?

Leonard Pitts is going to start writing a series of columns to answer the question posed to him by a 55 year-old white woman from Austin, TX who said she was heartsick about the police violence against unarmed African Americans and wanted to know what she could do. Today he reports what Rev. Tony Lee said in response. “Protests,” Lee told me in a telephone interview, “are one way that pushes people’s feet to the fire. Whatever the issue is, it’s brought to the forefront. But…there’s still need for people to do legislative advocacy, dealing with policy, whether it’s from the national to the local, showing people how to be engaged and [affecting] the policies that have such direct impact.”
