Black Lives Matter: Black Lives Matter

As many may know, recently there was a terrible incident involving African American George Floyd; he was innocently killed by a white police officer for a crime he didn’t commit on May 25, 2020. This event has been brought to the attention of many all over the world and resulted in many empowering actions including protests, fundraisers, petitions, and many more. “Black Lives Matter” is the important statement of today, and people throughout the globe are trying to do whatever they can to spread awareness and help the cause. Some steps have been taken near us too in order to help; the Jacksonville Jaguars marched to support black lives matter from the TIAA Bank Field to JSO headquarters downtown on June 5th. They did it for George Floyd and the delayed arrests of the three police officers involved in the incident responsible for his death. https://www.news4jax.com/ says, “Jaguars players, front office staff, their family, and friends joined their voices with others across the nation Friday when they marched in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.” It was about 300 people in total who joined the march. In Nocatee, there was a peaceful protest held to honor George Floyd’s death that occurred on June 2nd, https://www.staugustine.com/ says, “Protesters chanted ‘Black Lives Matter, When black lives are under attack, what do we do? Stand up, fight back’…there was a conscious effort…to recognize that demonstrations about Floyd’s death — and other instances of police brutality…” They held up signs, chanted phrases, and did whatever they could to honor all black lives including George Floyd’s. On Tuesday June 2nd, there was a social media movement called “Blackout Tuesday” where a black screen was posted on social media with the hashtag “blackouttuesday.” People worldwide including celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Kevin Hart, and Dwayne Johnson participated in this act. Blackout Tuesday was meant to bring awareness to the cause and make people mindful of what was happening and ways they can help. There was a controversy about this because many people did not know whether or not the act was actually going to benefit the movement in any way, but at the end of the day, any effort made is valuable. Every penny, signature, and speech counts. Your voice is your biggest aid right now.   There are many ways you can help the cause including:   Signing a petition (here are some available to sign) https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/ https://www.change.org/p/national-action-against-police-brutality-and-murder https://www.change.org/p/mayor-jacob-frey-justice-for-george-floyd   Donate to a cause or fund   Show up to a peaceful protest   Spread the word on social media   Educate yourself   There are many resources online and on social media to help you conduct your own research   Watch a BLM film on Netflix (there is a whole genre for BLM on Netflix right now), here are some films: 13th Malcom X or Who Killed Malcom X? Dear White People When They See Us Seven Seconds This is a serious topic and something African Americans have been struggling with since the beginning of time. It is about time we stand with them, protect them, and help them. We are all people who belong here and matter equally to everyone else. Black Lives matter today, tomorrow, and forever.

The Usefulness Of School

By: Mary Vega (Web Editor)
Every student has had the moment in class when they think “Why do I need to know this?” or “I’m never going to use this when I’m an adult” and while school is important, it is true that very often the things we learn in school aren’t going to be useful to us outside of class.
