Protests, Police Brutality, and Systemic Racism

Jun 09, 02:00 PM
We've been on hiatus for a while, and we'll be back to regular episodes soon, but there are more important things going on in the world right now.

People are gathering worldwide to protest the murder of George Floyd, and the ingrained, systemic racism that led to it. In response, these protesters have been met with police brutality on an unprecedented scale.

We're here to offer our support and solidarity to people protesting the virulent racism, and disgusting acts of police brutality, that our BIPOC citizens are met with on a daily basis.

We also recognize there are more important voices in this fight than a couple of cishet white doofusses from the midwest. Here are some places to educate yourself on the issues:
