Grievances vs Grief

Last edited Thu Feb 10, 2022, 09:07 PM - Edit history (1)

Earlier today I watched a press conference with Amir Locke's family and other families representing loved ones murdered by the Minnesota police.

The legitimacy of their pain and protest is beyond justified. Our brothers and sisters of color are being murdered. White America. Are we listening?

On this same day, entitled white truck drivers used their children as HUMAN SHIELDS to block a bridge. The rightwing nuts at Newsmax are outright asking American truckers to do the same.

The absolute deaf arrogance and rage at mere inconveniences (masks, vax, etc) is such a glaring display of privilege.

As one of the grieving Minnesota mothers said, we need to take the cotton out of our ears and put it in our mouths.

People are being MURDERED IN THEIR SLEEP and nearly half of the population thinks those families have no right to protest and send MORE MEN WITH GUNS to "patrol" grieving communities.

And yet those gun patrolling goons think their inconvenient grievances give them the right to shut down two countries' trade and travel routes.

This is beyond maddening. My heart is with our black and brown communities. All lives don't matter....not until black lives matter.
