Agreed, I love that it was done, but there are problems with it if it were to be permanent. Road lanes are hard to see, expensive maintenance, and there’s probably gonna be someone complaining about it. But if they erect a statue that’d be great and I’d personally donate to have it done. Also, protesting itself is a performative action, since they don’t actually control policy. More restrictive state and local policies governing police use of Vegeta The Fresh Prince Of All Saiyans Shirt force are associated with significantly lower rates of police shootings/killings by police.

Here’s a revolutionary concept: you can appreciate the move of solidarity AND still push for the changes needed. You don’t have to go “fuck this ‘performative distraction’”, more like “We appreciate this public display of solidarity, but we will not rest until the public displays turn into actual policy for reforming and bringing accountability to the police”. The problem is that is DOES distract. If you praise the action the white moderates will say, “Everyone’s coming together! Racism is solved!” and they’ll think the problems are over. If you come out against it the Vegeta The Fresh Prince Of All Saiyans Shirt white moderates will say, “You’re never happy. There are no pleasing you people” and they’ll focus on that instead.

RIP my inbox. I’ll leave everyone with this: A year or two or more from now (maybe even in a few months), there will be a candidate who will say they want to restore “law and order” after these protests and resulting reforms. For the love of God, vote the fuck against that candidate, tell your friends and family to do so as well, volunteer for candidates that will not only preserve police reforms but push them further. Then repeat that for every election until someone saying they’re the “law and order” candidate is as disqualifying as one saying they’re the Vegeta The Fresh Prince Of All Saiyans Shirt “pro-segregation” candidate. Same with rainbow sidewalks in Capitol Hill in Seattle. It’s small, but it’s a symbol that LGBTQ+ communities are part of the city, not guests or outsiders or trespassers. Cultural reform is important, and this is a quick, easy, cheap thing they can do.
