I don't know if anyone else reads Existential Comics, but their Twitter account has been consistently wonderful.
I'm tempted to share a bunch of tweets, but I'll just share the one and you can click their Twitter link if you want to see more.
If I woke up tomorrow and my boss told me that today at my job I had to shoot rubber bullets and throw tear gas at people protesting racism because one of my coworkers killed someone in cold blood, I would simply quit that job and do something useful like stock grocery shelves.
Thanks for sharing this perspective, I hadn't considered how dangerous these horses might be to other protestors. I'm biased in that I'm bummed that people continue to ride horses in general, but this makes a lot of sense.

I'm on the fence about this. I'd prefer that firearms didn't exist, but since they do exist then it seems irresponsible to be in a situation where they're overwhelmingly owned by people who lean toward [or embrace] fascism.
Or, phrased a bit spicier:
Any unarmed people are slaves, or are subject to slavery at any given moment.
