Going to get a little serious here people.
I actually think that social media is great, I really do…WHEN it is used properly. It gives you access to your loved ones, and for some people it allows them to stalk “non-loved” ones. You can message them for free, anytime of the day or night. A lot have free video/phone services. In theory social media is actually really great.
Humans beings just ruin everything, don’t they? I’ve started to realise that people don’t read and they don’t listen, because of these George Floyd riots. So many people keep saying that they should have tried peaceful protesting first. What did these “people” think take a knee and blm was about? Oh, Kapernick got really tired one day? That POC couldn’t find a good hairdresser? WHERE HAVE THESE “PEOPLE” BEEN?
I have seen people literally say that looting is on the same level a murder? That they were disgusted with people like me, because I think looting is okay. (Which I technically have never said) That they don’t want to be told they’re on the wrong side because they don’t think throwing a brick at a wall is the “right thing to do” As I told them, they’re on the wrong side, because they didn’t listen and they consider a building worth MORE than the continual murder of POC by people supposed to protect them.
You know who can never walk into the building where they work? The building where the lived? The building where their children lived, they can never walk into that building and hug them again. When they’re children grow up and move out one building, into another building. They can’t walk into their children new home buildings. George Floyd, and you know why?
