I don't watch videos of police brutality anymore. This story is too real and change too far off.

Patrick Lyoya’s death, like George Floyd, won’t lead to police reform

There’s not much to be gained from watching police brutality and violence against Black people. I’m waiting for some achievable legislative goals.

I try not to watch the videos anymore.

I still regret scrolling through Twitter during the spring of 2020 and unwittingly seeing the video of Ahmaud Arbery being shot down as he fled attackers through a Brunswick, Georgia, neighborhood. I think I was eating a peanut butter sandwich that I didn’t finish. I can’t unsee the image. I can’t forget the violent crack of the gunshots.
