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.

Can you help us out?
