I am having trouble tonight. I don’t believe Derek Chauvin will be convicted. At it’s core is that this country since 1619 has said that Black lives, especially Black male lives don’t matter. I was brought up believing in justice, justice for all, yet I’m losing faith. I want to believe, yet it keeps kicking me in the teeth, and I can’t.
If he gets off? We have to burn it all down. All of it. Not buildings, not cities. Rather our beliefs, our system of hate and injustice.
