Thursday/ Minneapolis is burning

‘White people, by and large, do not know what it is like to be occupied by a police force. They don’t understand it because it is not the type of policing they experience. Because they are treated like individuals, they believe that if ‘I am not breaking the law, I will never be abused.’
– Khalil Muhammad, author of The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime, and the Making of Modern Urban America

There is a lot of trouble in Minneapolis over the police brutality that led to George Floyd’s death on Monday.
