Too many Black Americans whose names we haven’t learned have died in custody. The Andrew Kearse Act is just one step to hold police officers accountable. I’ll keep working with my colleagues for an overhaul of our policing and justice systems.
By destroying the police, you are ensuring more dead innocent black Americans. It's not about saving black lives. It's about destroying the police, at the cost of black lives.
(2/2) Trevor on George Floyd and the Minneapolis protests: “If you felt unease watching that Target being looted, try to imagine how it must feel for black Americans when they watch themselves being looted every single day. Police in America are looting black bodies.”
Peaceful protests in Los Angeles and across America continue to demand justice for George Floyd and so many other Black Americans who have died at the hands of police. We must all work to dismantle systemic racism, and build a more just and equitable nation. Black Lives Matter.
Black Lives Matter. The murder of George Floyd once again displays the harsh reality of racial bias and police brutality that black Americans confront in our country. As millions take to the streets to demand justice, I had some reflections I wanted to share:
Black Americans shouldn't be killed in routine traffic stops, & police shouldn't be killed while protecting & serving their communities.
