arrest unwarranted


 
On a day when I’m proud to say the mayor of Vancouver declared this will be a Day of Action Against Racism, this is America today, May 29th 2020, a day on which Omar Jimenez a black Latino CNN reporter was arrested with three other members of his team for simply doing their job. To quote the words of Marcellus in Shakespeare’s Hamlet “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”.

  1. Thank you for expressing this through your art. Many things are rotten here. The country is moving backwards. If there’s anything productive to come of it, it’s the awareness of just how bad things are. I wish more Americans would travel, experience and find in themselves compassion for fellow human beings, and understand how deeply connected we are in the things we all desire ~ a better life, a way to make a living, a roof over our heads, the ability to care for our families and put food on the table. As Maya Angelou so perfectly said, “We are more alike, my friends, than we are unalike.”
