If you stop caring now then you never really cared in the first place. If you stop caring now then you only cared before because that’s what made you look good. Black lives always have and always will matter and your help is still needed to put an end to racism. No matter how long it takes we can and will do this.
Taron Egerton posts on his Instagram referring to the murder of George Floyd and the necessity to learn more about white privilege
We are watching every motherfucking move you make. Play it back on cameras so no one can mistake. The order of events that lead to prove another life you take. And if the verdict come back less than murder. Don’t be surprised when your streets are burnin’. This anger ain’t misplaced it is turning cop cars to bonfires til you learn.

Donald Trump is a white supremacist, full stop. If you vote for him again you’re a white supremacist, full stop. Call it like it is and then let the rims spin til’ they full stop. Put one up for Big Floyd, the march is not goin’ to stop.

BLM JUNE 2020
George Soros, W. H. O sterilized African girls and young women with ‘tetanus vaccines’ also birthed and funded Black Lives Matter. One HELL of a philanthropist!
And now we learn that as George Floyd pleaded for his life, Derek Chauvin told him that he was wasting his breath. Isn’t that the very definition of a monster?
All lives do matter.
But when this is your response to Black Lives Matter, it means you are hearing the voices of black Americans screaming for help. And you are looking the other way.
Y'all plllssss do NOT wear Che Guevara tees at BLM protests
First off it’s ironic af bc the man was a commie. like come on the man despised capitalism and yet youre parading his face for $15 on Amazon
Most importantly the guy was notoriously racist and homophobic. Not to mention his countless tactical failures, ruthless aggression, and flimsy leadership. Che was used as a figure to propagate communism in Cuba, but that doesn’t mean he was a good man, or the ideal revolutionary.
Che Guevara is just not your hero.
Empaths in 2020
This post is derivative of personal experience, the experiences of my peers, and experiences I’ve read of. I’m an empath. I’ve always been an empath. Growing up, in my middle school years, I couldn’t see someone go through something traumatic, or even remotely emotional, and let them go through it alone. Not because I simply felt morally obligated to be there for them, but because I felt their sadness. When my best friend’s parents divorced when we were 12, I was devastated. I had absolutely no emotional connection to her parents, but I saw that she was going through a major life event, and I felt that for her.
Now, the entire country is going through multiple traumas. When life became virtual, I had no idea what to do. People would disappear for days on end, and I didn’t know if they were okay. Had they been diagnosed with Covid? Had they been claimed by Covid? Were they dealing with mental health issues as a result of quarantine? Why couldn’t I help?
Secondly, it’s virtually impossible to read one’s emotions over the internet. If someone tells you they’re okay, are they really okay? You’re not there to read their body language and facial expressions, so how can you really know?
In the midst of the pandemic, we’re also experiencing a civil rights movement. Personally, I’m sad and angry. Not that protests are happening. But that they HAVE to happen. That we have reached a point in this country, this “land of the free”, where the only way the government will listen, is with protests. That the president shows absolutely no regards to those who have lost their lives at the hands of officers. That the officers who killed Breonna Taylor haven’t been held accountable. That the officers who killed Elijah McClain are still working. That Tony McDade was misgendered when his death was spoken about, and that his name isn’t being spoken more. I’m so angry and I’m so sad.
And, people are still experiencing personal trauma and personal life issues on top of everything. Because life is still happening. So I’m feeling empathy for all of that.
There’s very little happy in the world right now. And that’s difficult on empaths. We pretend to be okay, but we’re balancing the weight of everyone’s emotions. We feel it. We feel it all.
