Times they are a changing?

Morning Consult poll, May 29-June 1, 2020
I am astonished by what this poll seems to show. Can it be that majority of the people in this country have come to see what our heritage of white supremacy would hide from us? Not everyone, but you don't win over everyone ...

As long as the media continue to report reasonably accurately what police do -- to protesters in this moment and every day to Black and brown people -- we have a chance to recreate the terrain of struggle. And as police turn their fury at losing legitimacy against the media, some tough reporting squeezes through the conventional racist filters.

Brave people in struggle take most of the casualties -- but these same brave people are carrying the day. So much pain along the road.
