Blackout Tuesday⬛

I stand against racism, injustice and discrimination. I stand for equality, solidarity, inclusion and human rights. Every person has feelings and every person matters.

Today, social media platforms were flooded with the message ‘Blackout Tuesday’ and ‘Black Lives Matter’ in light of the George Floyd case. It is the year 2020 and it is hurtful and frustrating to see such stories in the news. “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
