via UPDATE: #BlackOutTuesday Uncovered to be a Form of Digital Suppression by Activist Brittany Packnett Cunningham — Diva Chronicles Magazine
So I reshared this . I think its legit and understand the need to still have dialogue on Social Media about racism , support for the protests and why the support of the protests matter . I’m in a wierd way , I still have some friends on my personal FB that just don’t understand . They think its just chaos for chaos sake . But its so much more . We as a nation and even on a world wide level have to stop the senseless killing of black lives . This is not just America’s fight but also people in Brazil that are dealing with similar plights . Please keep these people in your thoughts and if you have family or friends try to talk to them . I had to explain to family living in Mexico just exactly what is going on and why there is so much outrage . I had to tell my cousin how not even Mexican Americans or latinos are immune . Even if it doesn’t affect you , and you think you live in a nice place , you should care about your neighbor , people you may never meet or people you may pass on the street . I’m certainly impressed that other countries are taking notice and supporting the protests as well .
For people taking part in protests , please stay safe, do a buddy system , bring water , and look out for your fellow people . Be aware of people trying to make you look bad and always look out for suspicious activity . America needs you and I support you with all my heart🖤
