So while folks are telling us how the Chauvin verdict proves change is here, please note: the Columbus PD killed a 15 yr old girl #MakiyahBryant today. But they didn't even arrest any of the OSU students who were flipping cars and tearing shit up after a damned exhibition game.
it took 11 months, clear-as-day video footage, worldwide protests built on a foundation of decades of activism, and a painful trial for history to officially record george floyd's death for what it always was: murder https://t.co/uLZtCSVybT
@AlexNBCNews@SpeakerPelosi Speaker Pelosi: "Thank you George Floyd for sacrificing your life for justice ... Because of you and because of thousands, millions of people around the world who came out for justice, your name will always be synonymous with justice."
Thinking of Trayvon Martin.
Thinking of Sandra Bland.
Thinking of Eric Garner.
Thinking of Breonna Taylor.
Thinking of all beautiful souls lost to police brutality. My heartaches.
My prayers are with George Floyd's family.
