The Los Angeles Times pays tribute to the many characters he played on the silver screen.
…you can murder, rape, and disenfranchise a people for so long before they fight back.
People calling for “peaceful, nonviolent” means of protest: ask yourself, what does ‘peace’ mean to you?
Does ‘peace’ mean that people of color should *quietly* protest systemic racism that enables the continuous murder of our children?
Does ‘peace’ mean “go to the voter booth to change the laws!” when laws are being rewritten to prevent people of color from voting?
Does ‘peace’ mean “educate yourself” in crumbling schools, while we send money overseas for meaningless wars that our children fight?
I have an idea of what ‘peace' is. And sitting idly as our children die at the hands of merciless cops ain't it.
