I do agree that yelling at the top of our lungs from both sides of a huge divide isn't going to get us to real change. And further it's pretty apparent that some of the media amplifies only the extremes because those get most views. Usually exposing only the most extreme views of the opposition in order to reinforce the narrative that they are the crazy ones unwilling to cooperate.

But we've also really failed to make real change through elections or "proper" channels either. One thing jimmy will regularly push is local involvement. I've been attending local meetings in my city (virtually) and we've managed to create among other things a dedicated diversity/anit-racism position at the local high school, with teeth at the local government level. Increased police oversight and confidence in and AWARENESS of the oversight board so hopefully more infractions get reported. These are some successes that can exist between what we're often shown on some media outlets as EITHER "fire all police" vs "teargas and arrest all protesters". reallocation of funding from police is achievable locally!

Still important that protests continue to raise awareness and maintain urgency and expose the flaws in aggressive policing and reiterate without question that it cannot be tolerated.

And to the broader goal, dismantling the pillars which perpetuate racial injustice, including intentional voter suppression as bas rightfully condemns
