A Week to be Angry, Not “Weird”

Untitled design (4)

The one year anniversary for my column, “Tea’s Weird Week” is coming up in just a few weeks. Over the last 12 months I’ve enjoyed entertaining and informing with random musings, stories from my life, and reports about all sorts of strange things, like UFOs, conspiracy theories, ghosts, music urban legends, and much more.

There will be plenty of time for those things, but not this week. I sat down to work on this week’s scheduled column and I could not.

Black lives matter. This racist system is broken and has failed. The people have the right to protest and have their voices heard.

On Monday I watched in shock as peaceful protesters were tear-gassed and shoved out of the street in front of the White House, all so Trump and his crew could stroll across the street and pose for a photo-op with a Bible in front of St. John’s church. I will never forget those images or of the images of George Floyd being murdered.

All across the country (and the world) millions of people are crying out in the street that they’ve had enough. Listen to them.

Here’s some links I’d like to share:

Petitions, donation links, more resources: Black Lives Matter

Tips and Resources for Protesters

Op-ed by Kareem Abdul-Jabar: “Don’t understand the protests? What you’re seeing is people pushed to the edge,” Los Angeles Times

Local Milwaukee resources: Milwaukee Freedom Fund

Frontline independent reporting: Unicorn Riot

If you have appropriate links to share, post them in the comments. Be safe and be good to each other.
