if you look back at your history books you’ll see that this period of time starting in may of 2020 a lot of weird wild shit went down after an otherwise unknown man, George Floyd, was murdered by a group of police in Minneapolis.
it’s really fascinating how some movements start and how others dwindle quickly.
but the perfect storm of so many of us being holed up due to the coronavirus lockdown and the fact that Floyd’s death was documented on handheld video while several yelled at the cops to stop, became the last straw for people… around the world, to say that racism is fucked up, the power of police is fucked up, and the fact that rarely do cops get punished is fucked up.
meanwhile theres a perfectly good quarterback being shunned from his job because he dared to peacefully protest about these very same issues.
here’s some good news though, today the LA Times said they will start capitalizing B in Black.
