The United States has two pandemics, COVID-19 and Racism.
The Uprising in Minneapolis has inspired protests across the nation. Our communities are frustrated and taking their grief to a new level. People are condemning the riots for burning down businesses but the provocateur tactics of undercover cops are being recorded and shared as they find excuses to escalate a peaceful protest into a riot. We must be weary of any media sources claiming protesters are antagonizers. Property can be replaced, human lives can’t.
This is the year many people join the front line and really stand shoulder to shoulder with their fellow neighbors. We must organize for the South Bronx and every hood terrorized by systematic racism.
We must find more direct means of communicating and organizing beforehand. In this modern era your cell phone can lead the police back to you. Blurring the faces and features of protesters is a must and wearing a mask for your protection is even more important.
We must defund and demilitarize the police.
We need a system to hold the police accountable as a community and bring families restorative justice. The United States must apologize for the atrocities committed to minorities over the centuries.
