In many American households people are wringing their hands and wondering, "what's going on?" They see the fires, the damage, the looting, and wonder how the death of one man, George Floyd, could cause all of this. Maybe some of them are a little more up on the news cycle, and they know the tragedy of Breonna Taylor's death.Or how Amy Cooper, when requested to leash her dog in the Ramble in NYC's Central Park, told former Marvel editor and avid bird watcher Christian Cooper (no relation) that she was going to call the cops and "tell them that an African American man is threatening me and my dog," as she strangled said dog.They might agree that these videos are tragic, they might have voted for Democrats, but they think that "rioting and protesting like this isn't the way" or "this isn't something Martin Luther King would have agreed with" and "the looting drowns out any positive message that was to be had." Maybe this picture of the average American is your liberal uncle, your coworker, your well-meaning friend who shuts down at the first sign of confrontation.
As working class radicals, we know that it is not just this handful of incidents, but decades of violence against Black bodies in the form of laws, policies, unspoke
