👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 to NBA players decision to boycott games and the league decision to reschedule all of today’s game in response to the shooting of Jacob Blake.
The disgusting Laura Ingraham once told her audience on FOX, likely to their glee, that LeBron James should shut up and dribble. Well today the players told America NO we are not just going to move on from yet another incident of perceived misconduct by police against a black man, another incident where Black Lives Don’t Matter. Today we are raising our voices by not dribbling.
While the morally repugnant President who has hijacked our country with his hate, tweets in all caps law and order, ignoring the anger so many feel because of the continued threat of living while black in this country. We are screaming America this is unacceptable! We will no longer stand for it. We will not simply whisper it so you feel comfortable we will scream it to make you uncomfortable and if you choose to continue to ignore us you will see just how comfortable we can make you.
As Thomas Jefferson said:
What country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? let them take arms. the remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. what signify a few lives lost in a century or two? the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.
