If @espn  called me to talk the #GeorgeFloyd  story, I would ask if Howard@hbryant42  has been called first. I don’t want to see any other non-ESPN Black talking heads before I see Howard FIRST. He is an underutilized asset at @espn . EVERY show should book him ASAP! 1/2

“The president seems to think dominating black people, dominating peaceful protestors is law and order. It's not. He calls them thugs? Who is the thug here? Hiding in a bunker? Hiding behind a suit? Who is the thug?"

From @devrafirst : Support Boston’s Black-owned restaurants. Here are 40+ local food and beverage businesses to consider backing with your dining dollars.

I just returned from a candlelight vigil in Queens where hundreds gathered to decry the murder of George Floyd. There were moments of silence and moments of song. Peaceful protests to remember Floyd and other black men and women who have been murdered are a first step. 1/2

I’ve already told my booker that I want Howard@hbryant42  on #RolandMartinUnfiltered  to talk all of these statements from sports teams, especially the @NFL  ; as well as how Black and white players are reacting. He’s a SPORTS JOURNALIST. 2/2

We stand in solidarity with our fellow Chicagoans peacefully rising up to insist on justice and an end to violence against people of color. We know that we all have a part to play in ensuring progress is made and that black lives are safe and valued. #BlackLivesMatter

If this is true, there is something truly evil about leaving piles of bricks the day before Pride starts when the first brick at Stonewall was thrown by a black trans woman. I don’t want to spread misinformation, but be smart and don’t get played.

White people talking to white people. More of this please. If you’re white and you believe yourself not to be racist, yet you don’t talk to your white friends like this or stand up beyond tweets for Black people... you simply aren’t who you think you are.

To be silent is to be complicit. Black lives matter. We have a platform, and we have a duty to our Black members, employees, creators and talent to speak up.

And fucking listen to the black people speaking. You are not there to speak over them. If they are venting their pain and anguish out loud do not speak over them. Allies are there to help when help is needed. Not take control of the narrative. there’s enough of that already.

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.

So let me get this straight: Black Lives Matter protesters are tear gassed for protesting the murder of George Floyd, but MAGA protesters are left alone for bringing AR-15s inside state capitols?

If you’re unbothered or mildly bothered by the 1st knee, but outraged by the 2nd, then, in my father’s words, you’re “more devoted to order than to justice.” And more passionate about an anthem that supposedly symbolizes freedom than you are about a Black man’s freedom to live.

“If you, as a White person, would be happy to receive the same treatment that our Black citizens do in this society, please stand.”

SCIENTISTS: “We’ve produced the first-ever image of a supermassive Black Hole, 55-million light years away” RESPONSE: “Oooh!” SCIENTISTS: “We’ve concluded that humans are catastrophically warming Earth” RESPONSE: “That conflicts with what I want to be true, so it must be false”
