So, here goes. I support the protests against the killing of George Floyd by the Minneapolis police. I prefer the peaceful demonstrations, and decry that such demonstrations can spiral into violence against officers and property, but overall the issue of police violence needs addressing in ways that our people and governments will pay attention to. Again, the violence instigated in protests that start out peacefully can obliterate the message, but that violence can come from any side.
I hope that I've articulated my views on this issue of today well enough. I remember feeling that my own efforts at art making and the story I wanted to tell seemed utterly irrelevant in the wake of the attacks of September 11, 2001. I tell that same "irrelevant" story in the comics I write and draw now, and events such as the protests and the injustices that fuel such protests still possess the power to dwarf what I do here and in other places to express myself. I hope that I, in my own little way, have adequately added my voice to the discourse on these events of these days.
