If you can alter your behavior, open your eyes and make actual change - then we on to something. Otherwise it's just more fake ass attempts to pose as if you understand what's going on.

"At first I thought I should just shut up and listen to black people about this issue.

 

But why would I do that? It's not their problem, it's mine.

 

People of colour are being failed by the system. The white system. Like a broken pipe flooding the apartment of the people living downstairs. The faulty system is making their life a misery, but it's not their job to fix it. They can't - no-one will let them in the apartment upstairs.

 

This is a white problem. And if white people don't fix it, someone will have to come upstairs and kick the door in."

Hey, guys!

 

I'm not american, but I do live in US since 2018 (my husband is american and I moved here after we got married). This is crazy and I feel embarrassed to say this, but today was the first time I heard about Juneteenth. Thanks to the movement #blacklivesmatter, now the date June 19th is getting more visibility on social media and giving me the chance to learn a little bit more about history and slavery in US.

 

If you don't know about Juneteenth, this date celebrates the abolition of slavery in US. In June 19th, 1865, enslaved people in Galveston - TX first learned of their freedom.

“Only way we can really achieve freedom is to somehow hunker the fear of death. But if a man has not discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live. Deep down in our nonviolent creed is the conviction – that there are some things so dear, some things so precious, some things so eternally true, that they’re worth dying for. And if a man happens to be 36 years-old, as I happen to be, some great truth stands before the door of his life – some great opportunity to stand for that which is right and that which is just. And he refuses to stand up because he wants to live a little longer, and he’s afraid his home will get bombed, or he’s afraid that he will lose his job, or he’s afraid that he will get shot, or beat down by state troopers. He may go to live on until he’s 80. He’s just as dead at 36 as he would be at 80. And the cessation of breathing in his life is merely the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit. He died. A man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right. A man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice. A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true. So we’re going to stand up amid horses. We’re going to stand up right here, amid billy-clubs. We’re going to stand up right here amid police dogs, if they have them. We’re going to stand up amid tear gas! We’re going to stand up amid anything they can muster up, letting the world know that we are determined to be free.” -- Martin Luther King Jr., March 1965, Selma (Alabama)

"WORK HARD TO DISCOVER YOUR GIFT AND

YOU WILL NEVER ENVY OR HATE ANOTHER

HUMAN BEING WHO IS MANIFESTING THEIRS."

- LOUIS FARRAKHAN

A Real Life friend of ours lives in San Jose, California. She had recently visited Salt Lake City, Utah with a female work colleague. Our friend was driving and the colleague asked her if she could slow down a bit. Why, asked our friend?

 

"Because I don't want the car to be stopped by the police while I am black in Utah," was the reply.

A Change is Gonna Come - Aretha Franklin

It's been a long time coming,

But I know a change is gonna come.

You may tread me in the very dirt

But still, like dust, I'll rise" Maya Angelou

What we got to say (yeah)

Power to the people no delay

Make everybody see

In order to fight the powers that be

Fight the power

Fight the power

Fight the power

Fight the power

We've got to fight the powers that be

A simple thunderstorm over Oklahoma I spotted out the window on a flyover to California in 2019, looks positively apocalyptic when lit up by the setting sun. Love the window seat and I'm sure I annoy the other passengers around me by frequently opening my window blind to check out the landscape.

 

I can't help but draw an analogy with the current climate of instability in the US. It seems clear to many (myself included) that much needs to change to create a more equal and just society. As with changing weather, that change can often seem abrupt and dramatic, sometimes even violent, when the differentials are too extreme. It is scary to watch. But it is also difficult to explain the status quo to my children. But once the storm has passed, I am hopeful that meaningful change will take place, and the air may be cleaner and more peaceful than ever before.

 

Frighteningly, it may even become more difficult to voice one's opinion and change the status quo, as the tools the state can bring to bear now to suppress instability can have serious repercussions on even the most innocent and well-meaning. It's not the sixties any more. Without trying to be overly ominous or conspiratorial, we have to keep a very careful watch on the use of digital recording, autonomous surveillance and facial recognition for the purposes of identifying and harassing or even charging non-violent protestors.

 

These are effectively weapons of mass destruction against democracy, as just showing up to a peaceful protest could result in serious economic consequences. If that threat is realized, people will become fearful of speaking out. The first amendment is *essential* to a functioning democracy. I urge you to research and consider how your local, state and federal governments employ facial recognition to potentially interfere with the ability to express yourself. I do not know whether any agency of government in the US is misusing these tools right now, and I'm not claiming they do. But they have certainly been used to suppress free speech in other countries, and the potential is certainly there unless we as a society remain hyper vigilant, and this is true regardless of which political party is in power.

 

Stay safe, but speak up for your rights as well as those of the many whose rights and freedoms are more fragile.

Black lives matter. Full stop.
