Peaceful protest in Tacoma
Smoke billows as protesters burn a police cruiser outside Nordstrom’s Flagship store

because some people decide be not nice to people . 😞 my city was burning .
For all y’all planning to protest/riot, please keep yourselves safe.
Cheesecake Factory in Downtown #Seattle was looted. Video caught someone walking away with the cheesecake…
I have to go to sleep. I’m too heated.
2:48 am and I still hear police sirens. Today has been very heavy. I’m not talking about the rain that’s been pouring. I’m talking about the march, turned protest, turned riot that’s been fueled in Seattle for the past 24 hours. The downtown of my city has been burnt. Smashed. Watch where you walk because there might be glass and police brutality on the ground. My friends joined the protest, after being tear gassed, one said he cried more yesterday morning from the reality of the situation than the tear gas itself. Light and love, Seattle. I’m sorry it took the light of fire to turn necks.
The protests in Seattle didn’t have to end up the way they did. The same day a protest was going on in Tacoma where the police were there to protect the protesters and keep them safe. Seattle police started the violence, and the people responded to it.
Same state, different city
I wrote my last post on the brink of historical protests in America and the past few days have put several things on my mind. One of those things is revolution.
Generation Z has been given the tools and the power to change this country for the better. Whether that be through peace or any means necessary.
Revolution will come. Think back to the French revolution, the Haitian revolution, for christ’s sake the American revolution. Look to Robespierre, Toussaint Louverture, Hamilton, Simon Bolivar.
Young people have always had the power to evoke change. Power that now stems from the anger and frustration of 400 years of oppression. And if you choose to ignore that power or even condemn it, you are on the wrong side of history. And you better believe that this time THE REVOLUTION WILL BE TELEVISED.
I was at the Seattle, WA protest. After 4 hours of peaceful protesting, the Seattle PD fires flash grenades and tear gas into the dense crowd.
White supremacists led the looting, riots, and fires. A police officer maced an 8 year old walking home with her mom.
Peaceful protests are being welcomed with violence.
Hi how’re my other Seattleites doing
Is everyone okay
