I’ll probably keep adding to this, but here’s some resources to help understand the situation so you can help more effectively as well as some links to directly help with the George Floyd case. I know this might be triggering for some (and maybe that’s the point), but it’s needed if we are to go forward.
- Official George Floyd Memorial Fund
- The Petition to the Minneapolis District Attorney on behalf of George Floyd
Some learning for further understand how we got here:
- Anti-racism resources for white people
- In Defense of Looting - The New Inquiry explains why this happens.
- Trigger Warning with Killer Mike on Netflix - Though this is laced with humor throughout, Mike hits on some good points about food deserts, Black owned businesses, and how the American Dollar circulates through the Black community (or how it doesn’t).
