“Wake up, America!” #BLM protests & other antiracist, anti-fascist & pro-democratic things to do…

May 12 – We have so much work to do & nobody’s slowing down…

Say what you will, Senator Scott, but America’s racism is public policy set in wood and concrete, built into our homes, our streets and our neighborhoods. If the short video below inspires you to look further, there are lectures with Richard Rothstein, author of “The Color of Law” here (with EPI) and here (with Ta-Nehisi Coates).

New video with some truth in jest. Another good video here with Joy Reid, 1619 Project creator Nikola Hannah Jones and trans activist Charollot Clymer.

For all of you who took the time to sign the petition below and make calls and emails to protest this injustice, thank you. We shouldn’t have to ring phones off the desks, but we will.

73 days ago, Ahmaud Arbery, a 25 year-old black man, left his mom’s home for his daily jog. He was chased down and killed by well-armed two white men, a retired police office and his son. Because of the lockdown constraints on local protests, Ahmaud’s family and friends worried that his brutal murder would go unnoticed and that no one would be held to account. But we have phones and computers and we, along with many others, have noticed. (Warning – the video below shows an innocent person being murdered.
