Edit: I first wrote this post when I searched "black lives matter" on the NS searchbar and didn't find the discussions, but I hear that they're happening. I'm gonna go find them manually, and sorry if I'm covering ground that's already been covered, but here's my 2 cents.
Right now I'm seeing pros supporting BLM left and right, and there is no shortage of rap in our edits though, or black slang in our posts, so I'm just asking real quick if some more folks on here want to get involved too.
If you're already fully down, let me just say fuck yeah, and if you haven't already, please seek out some local protests, get out in the streets, and/or donate. If you're overwhelmed with choosing options to donate to, this link will let you split a donation between 70+ of the bail funds, mutual aid funds, and activist organizations. And if you think you can be a positive influence, please talk to your friends & family who aren't involved yet.
If you consider yourself on the fence, somewhere in the middle ground, "I'm not political", or even if you're for the cause/educated/woke/whatever, but you're not sure why you see all this BLM stuff popping up all over the place all of a sudden...that is to say, if you're open minded and you're anywhere except 100% for (or 100% against) BLM, maybe you could take the 18 minutes to watch this really solid breakdown of the moment we're currently living in by Trevor Noah. It is legit, and to me not preachy at all.
Feel free to reply or dm me if you wanna talk civilly about any of this shit going down right now.
However I'm not here to reply to trolls or racists, but by all means, put your shittyness on record if you want to.
Black lives matter.
