I support them and have supported them for many years prior to this recent wave of protests. We have a canadian version in my city and I would argue with wyte supremacists that would come to their page and have donated to their community fund. I have not marched with them these weeks because their rallies are too early in the day for my night owl lifestyle. I think if they are still around and active when I am better situated in life, I will attend their rallies/protests/demonstrations in the future.
I support BLM but I don't wish to expose myself to a large, dense crowd as I am high-risk for covid complications. The temptation to join in grows stronger every day though. Maybe if I can find a smallish crowd . . .
I am so heartened to see the activity and the momentum, but every time I see those teeming crowds, I worry about all the new cases of covid that are sure to arise.
There have been several in my area during the last several days, but I won't go. Between my age and my heart condition, it is too much risk for me. I am also not going to dine in a restaurant, even outdoors. I also won't go to a music concert, indoors or outdoors, for the forseeable future. Same with going out to sing karaoke, my main hobby. I will go see a movie at a theater, but only if everyone has to wear a mask and the theater closes off every other or every two rows out of three.
I support BLM. I would have joined the protestors in Omaha, but I'm not moving all that well now, and I still have to go to my day job. I can't take the risk of being hurt or gassed. And they did use gas in Omaha. So I support from the sidelines.
Every ones life matters. In these times especially those who have been on the short end for so long. We talk like white people have an advantage, which they have for centuries. We white have only had this privilege since the rich need someone to lie to that can be made and treated as privileged. I think what we are seeing now is the deterioration of this. Given the leadership in this country, when the shit hits it will not matter what color one is, all who stand against the orange one will parish, unless the military takes the side of the people. The orange one will not treat anyone who is against him differently, he would kill them all as they are not people only the opposition. He is after all King.
