Demonstrators held a silent sit-in at The Fashion Mall in Keystone in solidarity with employees who walked out of work. They called attention to ongoing issues of police brutality and what some say are unsafe conditions for those working in stores during the pandemic.
"The violence and destruction that have followed Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality in Black neighborhoods are extremely disheartening. It’s disheartening to me. It’s disheartening to Black leaders everywhere."
While protesting against police brutality and racism is surely legitimate, can riots also be defended? | @PeterSinger & Katarzyna de Lazari-Radek.
Can we all just admit this: The transformational changes that covid, the economic crisis, police brutality and racial turbulence will force are precisely some of the things Bernie Sanders was talking about but may have sounded too extreme to some just months ago.
Thousands of people in Philadelphia continue to protest racism and police brutality following the death of George Floyd. Crowds in Center City stretched from the steps of the Art Museum and past the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul.
Police have arrested at least 1,669 people across the U.S. during protests over police brutality, according to an @AP tally. They have not arrested: 3 of the 4 officers involved in the killing of #GeorgeFloyd . Any officers involved in the killing of #BreonnaTaylor .
We don’t have to share a Black person’s positive attributes when conveying that they died unjustly at the hands of police. A criminal background is no excuse for police brutality. Neither is sagging pants or a short skirt. Or a “bad attitude.” Black people deserve to live.
We want everyone to understand that #BlackLivesMatter and we will signal boost all efforts to underscore that the BLM campaign is the main FOCUS. THIS isn't about Anonymous hacking; it's about police brutality, it's about an unjust racist system.
