The Southwest Globe Times supports the people protesting for Black lives, equality, and justice.
Protests in all 50 states have forced changes all across the United States. Officials have charged all four officers in the murder of George Floyd. Breonna Taylor’s death is being reexamined. Even in our own city, the controversial Frank Rizzo statue has been removed from a prominent place in Center City. The large scale outcry from voices across the nation are forcing discussions about how rigged the systems are to hurt minorities and benefit whites. It’s also forcing discussions on race relations and encouraging whites to be anti-racist not just being not racist.
We are hopeful that these changes will lead to new attitudes and policies, and a more equitable society.
