Let's work Together... Shall we?

Q

So here I am sitting in a bar with folks who actually care about social justice issues. We're talking and it gets heated. 

Here's what we chat about: In Toronto the Black Lives Matter group interrupted the Pride Parade by essentially putting their issues ahead of other minorities. Black Lives Matter in Toronto demanded that police floats of LGBTQ not be allowed to participate and they then interrupted the parade.

Here's my one thought: not cool.

It's the job of activists to support each other, not interrupt what was intended as a day to recognize the challenges of the LGBTQ community. Even police officers can be discriminated against when they belong to a community that has historically faced discrimination.

Shame.
