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.

I dont know how to articulate the horrors of today. NG + officers firing rounds into kneeling crowds. We dont have enough medics on the ground on our side. I was treating injuries I am not qualified to. So much blood spilled. If you have med training pls go + standby outskirts.

And if you’re a white ally who is gonna stand and shout and antagonize the officers and NG and then hide behind black bodies when the shots start firing, fuck you. You couldnt understand a shred of the bravery of the black folks at the front line. Thank you to everyone who stayed

And a big personal thank you to @iamdomharrison  who literally ran exposed in front of rounds being shot to drag wounded people to safety without even thinking twice.

If they popped up on my timeline talkin bout black businesses before they were talking about black bodies. I took a mental note of that.

Every time I watch this I cry, NO ONE should ever have to feel this way. #blacklivesmatter
