Hey Tanisha, what do you think we should do next? What are some practical things we can do?
To my sisters and brothers, and my allies too. This is for us. I'm no expert but I love us and I will do what I can for us.
Last night, Donald Trump, the PRESIDENT OF THE U.S. tweeted: "....These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won't let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!"
We must take action. (Everything ain't for everybody. Find your role and go with it. We need someone in every single role, no role can be cancelled).

I know we need a real life discussion on how to break down the system as a whole so that they can STOP KILLING US. I think that discussion needs to happen offline so I have not included suggestions for that here.
This is all I have right now. I love y’all. I love us!
