Black Lives Matter

The unjustifiable murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many more have inspired uprisings not just in the United States but across the globe. The world is grieving, and we grieve with them, but the world is also angry, and rightfully so. For far too long, innocent people, especially minorities and persons of color, have been slaughtered by police with utter impunity, and now police are committing outright acts of terrorism against people protesting this injustice. Furthermore, state and federal officials up to and including the White House are using this as an excuse to implement the most egregiously fascist authoritarianism ever in US history.

This must end now. We must demand justice and accountability and we cannot stop until police officers, their unions, and their departments are held to the highest possible standards by being mercilessly and unconditionally punished when they brutalize the citizens they are sworn to protect, and when they shield the countless violent officers among their ranks. Anything less is entirely unacceptable - period.

Black Lives Matter. It's not just a movement, it's an indisputable fact. However, because of the racism that has been a cornerstone of the US since its inception (and still is to this day), Black Lives Matter remains controversial. The only thing that will destroy that cornerstone once and for all is education, acceptance, humility, equity (not just equality), and actively tearing down all institutions that reinforce this toxic and deadly culture. Now is the time not only to educate yourself and others, but to actively fight back against racism and its supporting institutions until they are permanently eradicated. Here is how you can do that:
