" I am with you
But the history walks
With me too!"
Quote from Jean Michelle Basquiat
appearance of something,' how could Basquiat have been more blatant in this title?! That this was happening
because of the color of Michael Stewart's skin?! This painting is not often shown, you question the racism of
this?! Why did it take hundreds, more likely thousands of African Americans killed before it was believed?
Why did it take the graphic murder of George Floyd, taking his last breath for 8 minutes and 46 seconds,
before the white man could understand the inhumanity there?!The inhumane killing of George Floyd was the tip of the iceberg! What affects one, affects all. We can no
longer stand idly by. WHITE PEOPLE DO SOMETHING!!
