    Cops are murderers. You are not here to protect us. You are not here to look out for us. You are not here for our best interests. You are murderers.

    My heart breaks for George Floyd’s family and loved ones.

      Thank you for sharing this Nerdy. No one deserves to die this way, especially at the hands of someone sworn to serve the public.

    They won’t do this to armed white racists at the capitol. They won’t do this to Klan terrorizing Black people. They’ll do this to people protesting murder by one of their own.

    Then people want to “well actually” when we tell y’all there are no good cops. They’re all evil.

    This is where Voting LOCALLY really matters…YOU and I can have an impact on the sheriffs and local police districts and the District attorney…

    on many levels accountability has been written out of police union contracts…their contracts help shield them scrutiny of the public,,,

    Campaign Zero..written in the beginning of the #BlackLivesMatter movement is still a great tool to use..

    be a Voter who VOTES LOCAL as well

    Right On..Right ON!!

      If I were in Minneapolis, I swear I would have been out on the streets, too. We just can’t take this anymore, as humans – much less as Americans. One loss of life is too many. And yet it continues for centuries in this country and in every country – the places and names change, but it’s the same. It continues.

      In 2020, I still ask myself how can we get up every morning and act like it’s just a “regular” day, when none of this racism ever goes away. I refuse to call that “regular,” no matter the year, and no matter how old I am. I was in high school when Dr. King was assassinated. I feel the same grief today for George Floyd. Lots of things in between those dates changed, but the same grief remains, following each murder.

      God bless Mr. Floyd’s family and all who loved him. Help them through the immeasurable grief. Give us the strength to remember each loss. Picture if it were your son.

    That feeling of driving, walking, running in your neighborhood, etc, and seeing a cop car and your heart rate jumps sky high.

    It is traumatizing. Black people are being bloody terrorized everyday by people whose salary we pay.

    Once again murder was CLEARLY done and these officers must pay the price.
    btw no such thing as race…only variaion and adaptation. This is an important moment and may it be LOUD.
    What can a white person say of any value? Not much. But what I can say is there’s no such thing as race.

    I posted earlier about Campaign Zero, the campaign that Black Lives Matter developed in the early days of the movement… it is a very useful tool and strategy…..WeThePeople can use the tools of that campaign to concretely fight against the systemic police brutality that affects black folks no matter what community we live in…i saw a few comments on social media about folks feeling helpless and i understand that feeling well..but we are NOT helpless……. there are things that we can do..

      I was watching the entire thing on my cellphone, what tripped me out the most were the space suits. No more big and bulky space suits, these new suits look at though you can wear them anywhere. And the control panel inside the capsule doesn’t have joysticks and buttons anymore, the new capsule has touch screen computers. And the seats that the astronauts sit in look like seats that games sit in. Back in the day a big bus would take the astronauts to the launch site, but no, these two astronauts drove a Tesla to the launch site. I’m like WTF, that was badass. I might take off Saturday from work just to sit home and watch the launch (hopefully).

        Yep I thought it was all pretty cool too. One thing that threw me was that one of the guys was wearing eyeglasses under his helmet! I was like 🤯 — I thought astronauts had to have 20/20 vision because of how prolonged lack of gravity effects eyesight. I guess they must have relaxed that rule over the years. Maybe it only applies to rookies. Anyway, I’m looking forward to Saturday. I hope Twitler doesn’t show up.

    So, after watching Lawrence tonight, on comes BriWi. Was about to switch off, but one of guests was Dr. Irwin Rediener, who proceeded to scare all bejesus outta every fiber of my being. NOAA has done a report that this coming season is going to be BADass weather. Add that to incompetent WH management of COVID-19. How are those in disaster areas going to deal w/ shelters, evacuations, etc. Dr. R. was urging Governors to start making contingency plans. In other words, FEMA won’t (my take, not his).

    I’m hearing that tRump is “considering” moving the GOP Convention to GA. Then I see that the dumb@$$ governor made the offer. Doesn’t appear that Georgian’s for the most part are happy about that possibility. As it stands, Georgia is doing as well as it is IN SPITE OF Kemp. Local governments and citizens in general are making the common sense decisions to continue the social distancing, wearing masks, etc. [Although I did hear the beaches were overcrowded during the Memorial Day weekend. I wonder how many were from out-of-state.]

      I would love to see a healthcare ad that includes McConnell (in his own voice) talking about his bout with polio and how his family almost went bankrupt getting him treatments.
