Black Lives Matter Why We Kneel Mission Viejo Ca June 8 2020
Wow! A lot has changed in the 2 weeks since George Floyd was murdered by Minneapolis police. There have been daily demonstrations across the country and around the world, 4 police officers have been arrested, a national dialogue has begun questioning the role of police and demanding major changes, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has apologized to players for not supporting them and their right to protest. It's a start. Arrests need to be made in the Breonna Taylor case and Collin Kaepernick should receive his own apology from the league and job offers. Until there is action, words are just platitudes to assuage the guilt.
Following are images from Monday June 8, 2020 as more than 1,000 residents of South Orange County marched for Black Lives Matter, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and an end to systemic racism and police brutality in America. The marchers were supported by 100's of honking arms and neighbors along the parade route chanting and shouting.... and, of course, 2 detractors, just 2. There are many poignant images from that day but, in light of Goodell's apology, the one that stands out for me is "Why We Kneel".
