What are you seeing on the Llama That’s what I do I drink coffee I hate people and I know things Vintage retro shirt besides I will buy this ground at protests right now?. Right now, if you go to Barclays, there’s rows and rows of police. In Union Square, they’re trying to pen protestors in. Three hours of preventing protestors from simply walking. Three hours of police getting screamed at and that tension going on—and they have to be prepared to deal with it and respond professionally, but ultimately, they’re human beings—and three hours of protestors getting more, and more, and more agitated. Why? Just let them walk, let them go. I couldn’t understand for the life of me why this would be the response, particularly from this mayor. Folks are angry, they’re frustrated, and it’s all justified—just let them go. We were able to speak with officers, and they did let them go [across the Manhattan Bridge], but in those tense moments, I saw a couple of water bottles being thrown at police, and the protestors themselves started shaming the behavior.

I saw a young black woman doing an amazing job of trying to decrease the Llama That’s what I do I drink coffee I hate people and I know things Vintage retro shirt besides I will buy this tension, and this is why I tell folks who want to be white allies or be helpful: look to black women to be the moral compass, and make the decisions on how to protest. This woman was decreasing the tension, and she had protestors take a knee in front of officers and defuse a tense situation. I went to officers and said, “Let’s just take a knee right now,” and I couldn’t get them to do it, and I was disappointed by that. Not long after that, when [looting] started happening in Soho: I can’t say it would have prevented it, but maybe it could have. Maybe it could have broken down these barriers of “us against them” by showing solidarity.
