There is no such thing as a pointless protest, if you are passionate about what you are protesting. I love that people have banned together. It’s about time people are standing up and speaking out. It’s refreshing. It’s a beautiful and refreshing thing that is helping to restore my faith in humanity. Or it would if I believed you were protesting for the right reasons.
Can we talk for a second about what exactly we are protesting? Police brutality, check. Race inequality, check. I get it. It’s sickening and hurts all the way to my core. It makes me angry, but we will not fix this issue through anger. We need to start showing each other more love. We need to care for one another and be friendly. Lend a helping hand, in fact, help yourself. We need everyone on board to make a point to the people who control us. We need to be protesting big businesses and the government. These are the people who are failing us, what is it about these recent acts of racism and police brutality that are motivating people? This shits been happening for years, am I the only one who wonders why the media is allowing us to be upset about these ones? I wish the death of the 12 year old boy would have motivated people more…or maybe the school shootings, but what do I know. How do we take the power back? We run for office, we vote, we get off our asses and make a difference. The system is failing. When the old system stops working, it’s time to get a new one. Get your shit together people.
Educate yourself. Be better. Do better. Let’s do it together.
That’s just my opinion.
