Yet another opportunity for a Black person to get justice did not happen.
I wish I could say I’m surprised, but I’m not.
As long as the comfort of those in power is valued over the pain of the global majority, racism will continue.
BIPOC people are the majority, hence the need for white supremacy to historically keep us out of power.
If you center white comfort over black lives, don’t tell me: “We are all one”.
What do we do? Get uncomfortable, folks. Back your “oneness” up with actions that benefit all humanity.
Breonna Taylor’s life matters and she deserves justice.
