…as promised in our intro, a very specific list of ways to support the #BlackLivesMatter movement:
1. Order from a BLACK-OWNED RESTAURANT
You can find one near you on this list of lists.
3. EDUCATE yourself by watching 13TH
Ava DuVernay’s documentary reveals the historical relationship of race, economics, and mass incarceration in the United States, and Netflix has made it available FOR FREE on YouTube. (Spoiler: Police abuse against America’s Black citizenry is not by accident, but by design.)
John Oliver’s “Police” episode of LAST WEEK TONIGHT is also informative and also free on YouTube.
4. Read up on #DEFUNDPOLICE
