Grand Rising

Do you feel the current protests in response to George Floyd’s killing have exposed systemic racism in a new way? Do you think there will be real change?

I don’t think systemic racism was exposed more this time than in recent years. I just think we as Black people have had enough of the bullshit. We’ve reached that breaking point. Our ancestors dealt with inequality, slavery, segregation, lynching, etc., and now we have so many instances where what we knew existed is in our faces on camera, and there are never any repercussions or remorse shown. It’s always “justified” somehow. As far as real change, I think the unity being shown across the nation and in other countries is delivering a strong message and applying true pressure. There are also more people in search of ways to take true action toward change and not just be a part of the outcry. So I think now, more than any other time, we are moving in the direction of change.-Damian Lillard
