Angry about looters? Redirect rage toward discriminatory system

-

You’ve most likely seen the images of people running out of stores with whatever they can carry in Oakland, San Francisco, Richmond, San Leandro and other cities in the United States.

That’s all our president wants you to see. He doesn’t want you to see the largely peaceful, nationwide demonstrations against police violence in the wake of George Floyd’s death in police custody in Minneapolis for what they really are: people rallying because they’re fed up with a system that disadvantages communities of color.

Sadly, the brutalization of black and brown people doesn’t get the same attention as looting does. But when cities burn, elected officials listen.

3. I wish every time there was a looting, they would be identified as "they were NOT peaceful

protesters."
