Wake Up, White People: This Week Is Why Colin Kaepernick Is Protesting

One sentence in one email makes it click.

I got the Blavity email newsletter this morning, and was struck with this oh wow, connect-the-dots statement:

The day we learned no charges would be brought against the officer who shot Korryn Gaines, Charlotte Police killed a disabled black man named Keith Lamont Scott. This is exactly why Colin Kaepernick is protesting.

It's that simple.

And it's why we should ALL be protesting.

Black. Lives. Matter.
