So, in general I would say that protests have been massive with some cities having intense protests that shut them down and rocked whole regions but most have been normal protests happening in places where they don't usually happen. Though, with the rabid police response that typified many city's experience we could hardly describe them as "peaceful." As intense of the Uprising in Minneapolis is I do think, though I can't believe I'm saying this, it is dwarf by the massive overreaction of the cops before and after. Many journalist are pointing out that the past two weeks could be best described as a police riot.
Because the truth is, there is no going back to before and we should be thankful for that. Whether the path forward is full of destruction and devastation or the ashes of the old system become the fertilizer for a new and better world for Black people rests on whether we respond to what the youth are saying with healing and humble wisdom or condemnation and condescension.
