What local organizers get and that columnists don’t is that “reform” of the police isn’t tenable because of the union and the entrenched power structure. “Defund” is actually the more pragmatic approach, because it’s what elected officials can actually do.

@mattwilstein @MeghanMcCain @KamalaHarris Answer me this: Why does my mom, a public school teacher for 25+ years need to spend her own money on school supplies when the police can afford tanks? My mom can barley afford her bills, but puts her students first. Students need supplies. Police don’t need tanks.

Meghan’s co-host @sunny ultimately had to step in with an even simpler explanation: “Defunding the police doesn’t mean abolishing the police.” thedailybeast.com/kamala-harris-…

Thank you to all who marched for racial justice and equality for Black Americans this weekend. This is a pivotal moment. Here in L.A., we're starting by identifying $250M, including cuts to LAPD budget, to further invest in communities of color and confront structural racism. twitter.com/NBCLA/status/1…

The president is who he is. He has not changed. He will not change. The question that remains unanswered is: who are we as Americans?

Normalize saying "I didn't think of it that way, I'll delete it"

It’s probably hard out there right now for a lot of you... finding out you’re racist and all. But have no fear, you can change! All you need to say is “I’m willing to hear a different perspective” and be open to potentially becoming a better person.

Asking not to get killed is not asking for very much.

WHY DID YOU BLUR THEIR FACES, @ABC7Chicago? These are grown-ass white adults who chose to intimidate Black protestors by open carrying semiautomatic rifles - totally legal in Indiana. #inlegis twitter.com/ABC7Chicago/st…

“We must get to children earlier to teach civics and the broader history of all people so that when kids grow up, they know what our government is supposed to look like and how it should function so they don’t get broadsided by an imposter who thinks he can change the rules.”

What I think President Trump can’t quite understand is that these protests are not partisan… They are American.

We're facing a full-scale assault on our constitutional right to speak out against police brutality. Attempts to harm and silence Black protest and people will not go unchecked. Here's how we're fighting back:

“Brittany King, Brown's fiancée, who is 18 weeks pregnant, was hit in the abdomen with at least three pepper ball rounds.” She was out delivering food before the curfew. Her fiancée begged them not to shoot. The police did it anyway. twitter.com/nbcnews/status…

"diversity and inclusion" needs to be upgraded to "anti-racism and dismantling white supremacy"
Retweeted by Amber Stevens West
Every video of a protestor that’s been injured — INCLUDING ELDERLY PEOPLE BEING SHOVED TO THE GROUND, YES PLURAL — results in comments like “listen to the police and that won’t happen” which really says a lot about what some people think a cop’s job actually is

I've stood alongside @KamalaHarris in attempt after attempt to finally pass anti-lynching legislation. On the day of George Floyd's memorial, today would've been a symbolic day to come together and do it. But one person stands in the way. politico.com/news/2020/06/0…

Sir, my attorney, @kaplanrobbie, asked you to submit your DNA sample to be tested against the dress I was wearing when you attacked me. You replied to my request by TWICE seeking to DELAY my lawsuit. What are you afraid of? The Law? Or the Order? twitter.com/realDonaldTrum…

The fact that MLK has to exist at all should be considered. A black man who probably had other aspirations spent his LIFE trying to convince white people that black lives matter and was murdered for it.

Nickelodeon blacked out their network in honor of #GeorgeFloyd for 8 minutes and people are really screaming at them for traumatizing their children. Black children are being shot and killed by police and YOUR children should know and be taught anti-racism. Also you’re racist

Has the Bible ever been used in a more disingenuous and exploitative way?
Retweeted by Amber Stevens West
Let me be clear. This is revolting. The Bible is not a prop. A church is not a photo op. Religion is not a political tool. God is not your plaything.

The President of the United States just tear gassed peaceful protestors for a photo opportunity. He must be replaced.

This is a terrible headline that doesn’t reflect what happened or what the paper’s reporters wrote. Headline writing is not easy but it is nowhere near as hard as the NYT makes it twitter.com/TomJolly/statu…

The President of the United States tear-gassed peaceful protestors in order to clear the way for a useless photo-op outside the White House—just after vowing to activate the military against our own people. Lives and our democracy are in danger.
Retweeted by Amber Stevens West
Newspaper editors have a choice: They don't have to use the photo that President used tear gas on his citizens to generate.
