How many times will we have to say that Black Lives Matter?
Never in a million years did I think I would see what is happening now. My grandparents are probably rolling over in their graves, it’s sickening. People are lost, trying to figure out how to contribute and help. There’s not just one way.
There are so many ways that people can bring awareness to what’s going on. Some will go out and protest, and lead these demonstrations. Some will spread the word to their 10 or 10 million followers. Some will move a little more in silence and wear shirts, hats, etc. branded with what we want conveyed.
At this point, I support all of them. I saw someone say that party promoters should take those lists of all of the phone numbers they receive and send out dates/locations of protests, etc. Genius. This could be how they contribute. Even if they don’t go, they are helping to spread this information to someone who may not have known about it.
This post has no title because I’m still at a loss for words (also why this post is so short). Well, not enough to not share a portion of my opinion. There is not a short enough subject line to sum this up.
