i may not be updating for a while, it doesn’t quite feel right to promote my stories/graphics/writing when everyone needs to be focusing on BLM right now. I have personal things I need to focus on as well, but that’s not really important in the grand scheme of things. 
          	The cop who murdered George Floyd was arrested on the charge of third degree murder, but the degree needs to be raised. It was intentional. He knew what he was doing. Protests are still happening. Fundraisers are still going. Protesters are being arrested. This is not something that will be ignored, this time right now, will be in history books. 
          	If you continue to write/update/post graphics, I hold nothing against you. My respect for people will only be affected if you continue day to day life without acknowledging the fight to end brutality against POC, and specifically African Americans,  and to end systematic racism that still goes in the United States today. 
          	Stay safe, do what you can, and do not stand by. Do not stay silent. 
          	If you are silent, you are on the wrong side.

          If there is a protest in your area, attend. If you have a platform, use it. If you have extra money, donate it. If you have a second, sign a petition. 
          I'm not here to preach about Black Lives Matter, because it is not my experience to talk about. I'm white, and I will never have to experience anything even close to what POC do. So I am not here to talk over the voices of those who this movement is for, I am simply here to support it and use whatever platforms I have to do that. Here are some links where you can help from home:
          
          PETITIONS:
          http://chng.it/tWGXsvpCBs
          https://act.colorofchange.org/sign/justiceforfloyd_george_floyd_minneapolis (OR TEXT 'FLOYD' TO 55156 TO SIGN THIS PETITION)
          
          DONATE:
          https://www.gofundme.com/f/georgefloyd (George Floyd memorial fund, created by Philonise Floyd, his brother.)
          https://minnesotafreedomfund.org/donate (use donations to bail out arrested protestors and to supply those on the field)
