      It’s important to coordinate using the work they have already done, the data, the networking, because starting from scratch is putting people back to square one. Just like the pandemic response, sane people learn and apply those lessons forward. Trump and those like minded want to erase what had been accomplished. I agree that we should not let them.

    Loved President Obama’s talk. I wish that the networks could have stayed with and broadcast the discussion that followed his initial remaks. I am listening and noting so many useful practical solutions.

    • June 3, 2020 at 8:36 pm

      hi gcl,
      PBO spoke 5 times, marvelous to hear his thoughts and see him looking so vibrant.
      Hope everyone sees the Obama Foundation video today…such an informative and practical discussion with stunning young activists who really know their stuff. Knocked out inspired by their insight, years of commitment, vision. Fmr AG Holder’s participation reminded me that he and PBO (and a few others!) reduced incarceration and lowered the crime rate. Improving relations while still keeping us safe, bringing people together. Holder said it was the highlight of his work to effect positive change. Judging people on their deeds, not stereotypes. PBO said how AG Holder rebuilt the Civil Rights Division in the DOJ and how hard he worked listening to communities. I saw him here in our community probably to attend a meeting traveling with agents, was struck by the gravitas. PBO and Holder such a great duo…love that photo you know the one.

    We need a lot more of this from highly regarded officials and military leaders that still care about the promise of our constitution and our democracy. Too bad it had to get this bad before he couldn’t stand it anymore.

    A conversation with President Obama: Reimagining Policing in the Wake of Continued Police Violence:
    President Obama’s closing remarks:
    “Just keep working, and stay hopeful!
    As I said, this is a moment and we’ve had moments like this before, where people are paying attention. And that doesn’t mean that everything will get solved, and so don’t get disheartened because this is a marathon not a sprint. But the fact that people are paying attention provides an opportunity to educate, activate, mobilize, and act. And I hope that we are able to seize this moment. I hope the mayors across the country who have either been watching, or hear about this, take that pledge to start immediately implementing some steps that can make a difference. And I hope all the young people who’ve been inspired, and engaged, and involved, they keep at it. Because that’s what ultimately is gonna create the kind of country we want.
    And for those who have been talking about protests, just remember, this country was founded on protest.
    It is called “The American Revolution”. And every step of progress in this country, every expansion of freedom, every expression of our deepest ideals, has been won through after it has made the status quo uncomfortable. And we should all be thankful for folks who are willing in a peaceful, disciplined way to be out there making a difference.”

      I guess it’s not newsworthy unless there’s fire, shooting, or looting. I definitely didn’t see this in the main stream media.

      It’s soooo good to see people coming TOGETHER PEACEFULLY and in song. This is what we know America IS.

    Just heard on Lawrence’s show that Seattle cancelled its curfew for tonight, mid evening, because today’s protests have been so peaceful.

    I hope to see that spread – even more than it already has – across the country.

      And, by the way, everybody needs to return home for social distancing! We must return to take more care to rid ourselves of the spread of the coronavirus, even though the protests broke through that other serious issue.

        Seeing the crowds of protesters brings me mixed emotions. I am proud of them for being so strong and determined to right a wrong to even risk their lives. However, we need them to VOTE Trump out. We need to flatten this virus count

    Denéa Buckingham

    “I have been at a loss for what I can possibly say on social media in the light of protests and marches all over the world after the latest in a long line of race-based murders. The death of #GeorgeFloyd has thrown gas on a fire that has never actually stopped burning. Racism has been smoldering beneath our societies for eons. No social media post, protest, nor even murder in cold blood will change that.

    There is only one thing that will end racism…

    Many people think ‘I am not racist, I don’t see colour’ but that too is a part of the problem. Colour exists, and it is how you react to it that determines who you are and what you stand for.
    Do you see colour, of course, we all do. To say we do not is to feign ignorance and ignorance is the same as guilt in this situation. The question is HOW you CELEBRATE colour, how you SUPPORT colour, how you APPRECIATE colour, how do you RESPECT and PROTECT colour?

    I grew up with a multi-cultural circle of best friends; we were a rainbow and I found our differences so beautiful; my Taiwanese friend’s thick, black hair, my Iranian friend’s huge, bright eyes, and my Ghanan friend’s stunning, dark skin. We were all beautiful in our different colours. Yet as we played and laughed and grew up together I could never have imagined or understood what these beautiful women would grow up to face – things I never would, because of the colour of my skin. And now I look at them, my friends, these successful, powerful women they have become, along with my myriad of friends of all shades from all over the world and I understand something – we must NOT be colourblind, we must be colour-united.

    We must see colour, we must see the prejudice that colour creates in some people, in schools, in workplaces, in travels. We must see these prejudices and racism and we must empathise with the people who are their victims. We must stand by those people and speak up when we witness racism, we must seek to integrate people of differing heritage in our companies, in our circles of friends, in our lives.

    It is only when everyone recognises, acknowledges and APPRECIATES colour and the rich heritage and cultural backgrounds that this diversity signifies can things change. Only when each and every one of us starts to treat people of all colours with the dignity and respect that they deserve, only then can we move forward from these backward prejudices that do not serve anyone.

    Children do not hate one another for their differences, they unite through discovery of their similarities – prejudice and hatred are learned behaviours. These are things that parents and adults, whether intentionally or unconsciously, teach their children.

    If you are an adult with influence over a child, teach them acceptance of all humans, teach them kindness, teach them about diversity, teach them unity.

    If you are a human, reach out to other humans, more than by just posting online, go out and speak with people from all over the world, of all colours, shapes and sizes. Speak with each other, learn about each other, respect each other, understand one another.

    All lives matter, but right now we all need to stand behind one group of lives and change the way they are treated.

    We are all human and as humans right now we need to stand together with our black brothers, sisters, friends and communities – we must agree and support and shout and demand and prove with our ACTIONS that #blacklivesmatter and that all people of colour deserve each and every equal right in this world. We must unite through colour, now and for always.

    ✊🏿✊🏻✊🏾✊🏼✊🏽
