More from Friday’s BLM rally. Five minutes ago, I saw the girl in the middle right outside my front door. She was on the phone, so I said “Excuse me, forgive me, but did I not see you at the Black Lives Matter rally the other day? I just wanted to express my appreciation for you speaking there. I know it takes a lot of courage. Thanks so much.” My roommate has pointed out to me that our apartment was once the San Diego headquarters of the Black Panthers, and I’ll be damned if I don’t live up to the legacy of those residents that came before me.
