The real looters have long been destroying our society from the safety and luxury of corporate board rooms and the halls of power in America. The anger and rage in our communities is 100% justified.
We can and must understand and empathize with that anger in this moment to organize for real positive change. The whole system has to fundamentally transform to move forward. A return to pre-pandemic business as usual is a death sentence for America.
Let this moment of riots in the midst of a pandemic in a failing system with vast inequality and millions unemployed with a complete buffoon in charge be a catalyst to move this nation in a profoundly new direction.
If we don’t seize this moment to have the hard conversations we’ve been pretending don’t need to happen, we fail our children.
