Protesters call for justice for Jacob Blake in 38-mile march between Kenosha and Milwaukee
Group of marchers has made it from Kenosha to Milwaukee (they started just after midnight)... currently about to head through Walker’s Point. This is a Justice for Jacob Blake and Early voting rally that will end at Red Arrow Park in MKE. @tmj4
Jacob Blake’s sister: ‘I’m not sad. I’m not sorry. I’m angry. And I’m tired. I haven’t cried one time. I stopped crying years ago. I am numb. I have been watching police murder people that look like me for years.’ (warning: distressing)
Jacob Blake's uncle on President Trump: "Our nephew was shot seven times in the back. Nothing could justify that...We don't have any words for the orange man. All I ask is that he keep is disrespectful foul language far away from our family."
Interesting. Thinking about Jacob Blake right now. Sure seems like white people get the benefit of the doubt when engaged with the police...
I strongly support the NBA, WNBA and MLB players who are striking for racial justice. Real change takes place when people come together and demand it. It is time for the police who shot Jacob Blake seven times in the back to be fired, arrested and prosecuted. Now.
