Mayor Frey: "What we've seen over last 2 days...is result of not just 5 minutes but 400 yrs"

"What we've seen over the last two days ... is the result of so much built-up anger and sadness. Anger and sadness that has been ingrained in our black community, not just because of five minutes of horror, but 400 years."

1. Frey is a very good mayor.

I think he's doing as good a job as he can under the circumstances.

3. Right, brought me to this:

Saw final segment of Grant last night,
on History channel, and the coincidence of that with events in Minneapolis bring me to this conclusion: It is who 'we' are, and likely never to 'go away.'

6. 401 years of white knees on black necks.

From slavery to redeemer states to the KKK to Jim Crow to lynching and each and every day since and in between.

Every right gained has met the resistance of a white knee.

Be calm?

Be patient?

Change takes time?

After a while, incremental sounds like never. Especially when you're the ones struggling to breathe under those white knees.
