We are done with Martin, we need Malcolm right now.
Black people are playing a game of ethics with an unethical person.. a devil’s wager if you will. Violence is a byproduct of the CONSTANT “beating” people are taking (sometimes literal, most often psychological/emotional/financial/educational/societal). When someone speaks out, they are silenced and drowned out by the…

Look, I want to bang Idris Elba like a screen door in a hurricane as much as everyone else on the planet but... why tf is he able to get tested with NO SYMPTOMS when my friends in the UK say there's a shortage of tests?
