I meet plenty of anti black Asian American racists, specially the older generation. I also read about all the armed white people who counter protest and claim the cops need protection, the moderates who decry the few and inevitable lootings, store burnings etc as “violence” without stopping to think that it is the state that defines violence, and the constantly right shifting Democratic politicians whose “tough on crime” bills have kept us on this path from slavery and colonialism to US state sponsored terrorism both domestic and international.

We might have the luxury of feeling different, but has the annual rate of police killings of citizens changed? Are there fewer black parents losing their children to police murder?

I stop to miau to cats.
