I have been falling behind on my content. I had a post scheduled for today to make up for my lack of activity.
But with news that once again, another black person is denied justice in face of state violence, I cannot in good conscience share my originally scheduled post.
Instead I will use this weeks post to say only this:
Breonna Taylor was sleeping, and they shot her eight times. No one is being charged for shooting a woman in her bed eight times. Think about that.
Do not, I repeat, DO NOT, tell black people how they should feel, react, or protest. If you say "don't protest, VOTW!" You're an asshole and you should be barred from speaking in public. No I'm not using hyperbole, I genuinely think you're on Trumps side if you say that, no matter what your intentions are. Also, if you are more bothered by people's reactions to a black woman being murdered in her sleep than you are about a black woman being murdered in her sleep, you need to rethink your priorities.
Breanna Taylor mattered, Black Lives Matter.
