On this blog, I don't mention holidays, birthdays, religion, or politics, but I will make an exception today. Unarmed black men have been killed in embarrassing numbers in the US, and there is a sickening concentration in Minnesota, where I live. Many names don't get published in the papers, but names like Philando Castile and George Floyd showed me that there are so many names under the proverbial rug that they're spilling out. Minneapolis has dithered on a solution. For years they promised reform and failed. They finally agreed to disband/defund the police, but they walked their answer back. I thought it was progress, but the system is too big to succeed.
The most inspiring dialogue I heard at the protest was in the first couple of minutes. The speaker said that the most important thing someone can do, is show up at the protest. I had these illusions that I needed to be some guerilla protestor with unassailable logic. It turns out, I just had to agree that it is wrong to abuse black people.
