Let's have a White People Organize This Time march, so we can, as a culture, stop using police as a Caucasian cleanup committee. Every cop who's "here to crack skulls" is encouraged by thousands of people expecting to use 911 as their personal get-off-my-street hotline to eradicate undesirables from white neighborhoods.

As a part of a group that has fought against the vicious police sweeps against the most vulnerable people, the unhoused, we are fully aware of the crypto fascist mayor’s terrorism against the poorest of the poor.

“Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. We can choose to walk through it dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world. And ready to fight for it.”
Author Arundhati Roy.
We have begun.
