Most Powerful #BlackLivesMatter Protest Moments

11 Dec
As I discussed in the previous post, Why Protesting Matters, the demonstrations across the nations and around the world against the killings of unarmed black men and women have been powerful. And they have not stopped.
So far, people around the world have been shutting down malls, freeways, street blocks, bridges, and many other places, to let our nation know that BLACK LIVES MATTER. Take a look at some of the most inspiring protests so far:
1. Ferguson protesters in Boston shouting “we see you” to inmates in a local jail.

2. Protesters in Ferguson protecting local stores from looters

3.Wal-mart employees across the nation stage sit-ins on Black Friday

4. Protesters in Ferguson “Die-in” and shut down an entire mall in St. Louis on Black Friday

5. Protesters in New York carry mock caskets for all the black lives lost to racist police

6. #Blackout Black Friday Protesters in the Bay Area shut down Bart

I recently found a newer protest happening this Friday at movie theaters across the nation to boycott the movie Exodus. I’ve discussed the whitewashing of black history and the casting of white characters for black roles in Why I’m Not Giving Hollywood Any More Money. Movies like Exodus show that Hollywood doesn’t give a shit about black people. Our dollars are powerful and shouldn’t support blatantly racist crap like this. So check out this protest:

Finally, if you saw any protests that inspired you and did not make my list- drop a note with link in the comments section.
