“I am here tonight to say to you, ‘do not be discouraged, do not feel hopeless’ because you cannot build a house in a day. And you certainly cannot rebuild a country in a month or two. But we will rebuild this country, block by block. And right now, what we’re doing is digging the foundation. We are digging the foundation of this new America that we will construct. A lot of people get really scared when they hear us say things like ‘defund and abolish the police.’ But what they don’t understand is that perhaps for them, police in America gives a sense of safety. What they see, if you are a part of the privilege, that when you see the presence of police officers it makes you feel safe and secure, but when black men, when black women, when black children, when black queers, when black trans folk see police, what we see, what we feel, is we feel as though death is on the horizon.” - @jamaicanwriterchick
“This country runs on the backs of minorities and it most certainly works because black women show up, brown women show up for all of you. When do you show up for us?” - @mhsexpert
“This is Our country. These are Our streets.” Proclaimed @theluxof. “It is up to Us to change the country. It is up to Us to change the norm.”
