At a protest scheduled today in LA, People were literally just going to sit at an intersection to peacefully protest. And the national guard has been called in and rumored to use lethal/ excessive force.
I echo “who are they protecting?” #BLM
Australians in the US. You may be on a visa and scared of being arrested and being forced to leave the US if you attend protests. But it is clear as day that we’re needed to unite with our american brothers and sisters against this evil. #BLM. Do not be afraid to stand together.
Strategic thinking and push back on racial oppressors is more important than ever. From behind your screens or active protests please be apart of the conversation that is happening in the USA Today. Fact check, think critically and fight for black rights rights.
I’m apprehensive to share this video, I think I’ve censored myself fairly well, I feel fearful to speak up about the albums that went out early for fear or loosing partnership with media outlets... but here’s some thought’s... https://t.co/yWHfpZtIT9
Lost for words, you’ve brightened up the world today, thank you to England, Scotland and Ireland for the #1 / #3 albums. You and I both know albums are everything for this band,
You’re real fans. For life 🖤 https://t.co/ObTbVkIktZ
As I reflect on the last few days I’ve been out here on the front lines, from facing hate to a car purposely almost striking me, my heart is filled w gratitude but also sadness bc I am still here fighting. Almost 7 years later. I can’t remember a time where I was just ‘a kid’ 1/2 https://t.co/9v0wZw4W2q
DEAR NON-BLACK ALLY,
WHAT CAN YOU DO TODAY?
IN SOLIDARITY, AMPLIFY THE VOICES OF BLACK PEOPLE DURING #BLACKOUTTUESDAY
SHARE IN THE OUTRAGE
SUPPORT A BLACK BUSINESS TODAY
Please don’t leave MY voice out. I get that white allies with bigger platforms are speaking out and standing with us but please don’t forget to amplify the black voices who’ve been on the ground doing the work for years! LIFT US UP TOO while you stand with us. ✊🏽
Today marks the beginning of Pride month. As we seek to commemorate 50 years of our history, we must remember that the first Pride started as a riot led by people of color who sought an end to police brutality and oppression. We stand with #BlackLivesMatter - https://t.co/OY0xz9AWYM
I wrote out some thoughts on how to make this moment a real turning point to bring about real change––and pulled together some resources to help young activists sustain the momentum by channeling their energy into concrete action. https://t.co/jEczrOeFdv
Here is a thread put together in which helped me pinpoint and isolate my privilege from a white & socioeconomic standpoint. To gain more knowledge on the root of ingrained systemic racism. Better helping one understand how they can use their voice and actions more effectively--
We need real police department reform. Every police officer involved in a killing must be held accountable, and those found guilty must be punished with the full force of the law. Every killing of a person held in police custody must be investigated by the Department of Justice.
George Floyd’s murder is not only an outrage. It is the latest manifestation of a system that callously devalues the lives of Black people. Our struggle is and always has been about justice—not justice on paper, but real justice in the real lives of real people. https://t.co/03LHnirfHq
“you always told me it takes time. it’s taken my father’s time, my mother’s time. my uncle’s time, my brother’s and my sister’s time. my niece’s and my nephew’s time. how much time do you want, for your progress?” - james baldwin https://t.co/JkE8w7up9Y
