Whiteness is a scourge on humanity. Voting for Obama that one time is not a get out of being a racist card

So Revolution really was brought about by a need for Social Justice.

Remember those debates? The claim that economic justice would automatically bring in social justice?

We have neither.

But the fact that Black lives mattered less than other lives, repeatedly and chronically, this born out out reliably, by social science and statistics, and also born out by countless anecdotal accounts, finally brought to a crescendo by one more murder of a Black man by someone who who vowed to serve and protect, (and perhaps, a pandemic being a catalyst in some way) brought revolutionary action, with real change being proposed, well. Damn.

Black Lives Matter. Social Justice is a challenging, painful process and I still see people resisting it. Waiting for the anger to die down. Waiting for things to “go back to normal”

I just don’t see that happening.
