at the protests the news reporters keep coming up to me, asking my thoughts and why i’m there. i keep telling them there are better people to talk to and that i can put them in touch with some of the young black people leading this march. i might refuse to do the interviews from now on, but i’m a sucker for the camera. here i am on news channel 8 last night as we shut down DC to raise our voices for justice for Eric Garner, Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.
i stopped myself from saying something about a fucked up world we live in because i knew it was live. i shouldn’t have been so respectful. should’ve let my passions continue, but i was trying to sound intelligent and make some cogent points. i should’ve cussed. should’ve chanted. should’ve directly addressed the viewers. meh. ima just follow the chants, link up, and march in the streets again tonight, and probably tomorrow too.
