Those of us who call ourselves allies need to do everything in our power to stand with the black community right NOW. BLACK people are regularly being murdered unjustly by police. We have seen it. Over and over again. This has gone on in America for too long, and it’s NEVER been okay. We have to take action, we have to make noise.⠀
For seven whole minutes, #GeorgeFloyd
pleaded for his life, while Derek Chauvin, one of Minneapolis cops involved, kneeled on his neck and ignored those pleas for help.⠀
Allies... this is the time for us all to take a hard look in the mirror, share responsibility and ask our family and friends what can we do to educate our own communities. ⠀
I stand with @ColorOfChange
and countless others across the country to raise my voice alongside you, and demand that all FOUR officers involved are arrested and charged with murder now. Text FLOYD to 55156. Sign the petition. Don’t stop.
