I decided today to use my voice and platform to share my experience and thoughts as a Queer, Black American. I’d heard buzz of the podcast blackout that would be taking place and decided I wasn’t going to be quiet. I have a responsibility to share my experience and reflect where others can hopefully see and feel what I’m experiencing.
All of the activity surrounding the murder of George Floyd and the riots is heartbreaking to see. I quoted it and I’ll quote it again: “I don’t have to condone it to understand it.” Colin Kaepernick protested peacefully and look at how riled up racists became.
Police brutality must stop. It’s not safe for black boys and men in our streets; streets we pay you with our tax dollars every year to protect. It’s not safe for me. You can’t protect me if you’re scared of me. I can’t breathe. I really can’t…
Thank you for taking the time to watch my insta-session. All I can do is share my experiences and continue to speak up. I hope you’ll join me.
