After endorsing Joe Biden for president, Cindy McCain, wife of the late-Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said that the GOP has lost its way and hopes it gets back on track to being a party of “inclusion” after President Trump leaves office.

Speaking on “The View,” Cindy McCain’s daughter, Meghan, asked about the Arizona GOP’s recent talks about censuring Cindy, as well as former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Governor Doug Ducey.

“The Arizona GOP is in talks to censure you, as well as a former senator Jeff Flake and our wonderful governor Doug Ducey, and I think I’m actually included in the censuring because it said part of the McCain family. I don’t understand what’s going on. I’m was horrified and disgusted. Why do you think there’s such anger at our family and Jeff Flake and Doug Ducey?” asked Meghan McCain.

“Well, it’s the same thing. It’s about doing what’s right for the country, and certainly, Senator Flake and our Governor Ducey have made some very tough decisions lately and in the past, but it was for the good of our state and for our country,” replied Cindy McCain. “I’m in good company. Your dad was [censured] by them. I think I’m going to make t-shirts for everyone, and wear them, you know. You’ll be happy to know, Meghan, they did take the family part out. So you’re no longer included.”

When Meghan McCain expressed dismay over the censuring, Cindy McCain said that it’s indicative of the Republican Party losing its way.

“I think what we have seen here is when I began in the Republican Party officially, the Republican Party was the party of inclusion,” said Cindy McCain. “It was the party of generosity. It was the party of country first. We have lost our way. We have lost our way, and it’s time that we get back on track because we have always been the party that cared deeply, that loved what our country did and what it stood for. We have lost our way. I truly hope that as things progress on and we get further away from this mess that occurred, that we can do just that. We can get back on track and remind everyone that we are here for the country, not our party.”

Cindy McCain endorsed Biden on Twitter in September, saying that her husband “lived by a code” that put country over political party.

“My husband John lived by a code: country first. We are Republicans, yes, but Americans foremost. There’s only one candidate in this race who stands up for our values as a nation, and that is @JoeBiden,” she said.

“Joe and I don’t always agree on the issues, and I know he and John certainly had some passionate arguments, but he is a good and honest man. He will lead us with dignity,” she continued. “He will be a commander in chief that the finest fighting force in the history of the world can depend on, because he knows what it is like to send a child off to fight.”

Biden tweeted that he was “deeply honored” to have Cindy’s endorsement, saying that the election was bigger than a political party.

“Cindy — I’m deeply honored to have your support and your friendship. This election is bigger than any one political party. It requires all of us to come together as one America to restore the soul of the nation. Together, we’ll get it done.”

British superstar Rowan Atkinson, who will forever be immortalized as the iconic “Mr. Bean,” has joined Ricky Gervais and John Cleese in the fight against cancel culture.

Speaking with U.K.’s Radio Times, Atkinson said that the modern act of destroying people in an instant due to past or present sins is the “digital equivalent of the medieval mob roaming the streets looking for someone to burn.”

“The problem we have online is that an algorithm decides what we want to see, which ends up creating a simplistic, binary view of society,” he said, as reported by Variety. “It becomes a case of either you’re with us or against us. And if you’re against us, you deserve to be ‘canceled.’”

“It’s important that we’re exposed to a wide spectrum of opinion, but what we have now is the digital equivalent of the medieval mob roaming the streets looking for someone to burn,” Atkinson added. “So it is scary for anyone who’s a victim of that mob and it fills me with fear about the future.”

In the same interview, Atkinson admitted that he does not much “enjoy” playing Mr. Bean because of the immense responsibility that comes with getting him right.

“I don’t much enjoy playing him. The weight of responsibility is not pleasant. I find it stressful and exhausting, and I look forward to the end of it,” he said.

Atkinson joins the ranks of several British comedians who have condemned cancel culture, including “Monty Python” alum John Cleese and Ricky Gervais.

Speaking with Reuters this past July, Cleese said that cancel culture, often fueled by political correctness, “misunderstands the main purposes of life, which is to have fun.”

“Everything humorous is critical. If you have someone who is perfectly kind and intelligent and flexible and who always behaves appropriately, they’re not funny. Funniness is about people who don’t do that, like Trump,” he said.

Cleese added that political correctness creates a problem for comedians because they “have to set the bar according to what we are told by the most touchy, most emotionally unstable and fragile, and least stoic people in the country.”

Comedian Ricky Gervais has long been an opponent of cancel culture and the excesses of political correctness in general. During an episode of the podcast “SmartLess” with Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett, Gervais said that being woke in today’s environment could be taboo in the next 10 years based on cultural shifts.

“The scary thing is being canceled if you say the wrong thing and suddenly Netflix can take you off their platform,” Gervais said.

“You could be the most woke, politically correct stand-up in the world at the moment, but you don’t know what it’s going to be like in 10 years time. You can get canceled for things you said 10 years ago,” he added.

Some might argue that cancel culture holds public figures accountable for transgressions, but Gervais said they are mistaken. For instance, if a comedian, celebrity, or anyone else expressed views that offended someone, the person can always choose to boycott them; with cancel culture, however, people are bullied into deplatforming and blacklisting others, something entirely different.

“The misunderstanding about cancel culture is some people think you should be able to say anything you want without consequences and that’s not true because we’re members of society and people are allowed to criticize you,” he said. “They’re allowed to not buy your things, they’re allowed to burn your DVDs and they’re allowed to turn the telly off. What they’re not allowed to do is to bully other people into not going to see you.”

Famed tattoo artist Kat Von D announced that she will be leaving Los Angeles for a small town in Indiana due to tyrannical government overreach.

In a Facebook post last week, the former “LA Ink” star said that even though she will not be selling her Los Angeles home, she will be relocating with her son part-time, citing California’s corruption.

“Definitely not ever selling our beautiful home in LA, but with all that’s been taking place in California, with terrible policies, tyrannical government overreach, ridiculous taxing, amongst so much more corruption, we just felt the need to plant roots in a small town where my son can be free to play, and where we can eventually retire one day,” she said.

Kat Von D also clarified that she will not be closing her shop in Los Angeles. “We will eventually be spending more time in beautiful Indiana once I finish doing some remodeling on our new historic house.”

Reaction from fans of the famed tattoo artists ranged from enthusiastic to condescending.

“I left the sheltered, depressing area you’re moving to, so did most everyone I knew. I also lived in Cali. More expensive, but more opportunities in every aspect. A lot of people there never left the state. Tyrannical overreach? That’s hilarious because you guys never would be successful without ‘worldly’ /Cali attitudes,” said one fan.

“Welcome to Indiana Kat. I love it here. Married a Hoosier and we moved back to his hometown 23 yrs ago when he got out of the Military,” said another fan.

“How wonderful for you to take the time to address the concerns and questions of your fans, and what an amazing mom you are Kat! I admire your soul, and yours is truly a beautiful heart! All the best wishes for you and your family,” said another.

Kat Von D’s exodus from California follows a string of celebrities and high-profile business names that have left the once Golden State due to horrific policies. Billionaire Elon Musk, for instance, recently announced his move to Texas after repeatedly criticizing the COVID-19 lockdown policies.

“Tesla and SpaceX obviously have mass operations in California. In fact, it’s worth noting that Tesla is the last car company still manufacturing cars in California,” Musk said during a virtual conference hosted by the Wall Street Journal. “Space X is the last aerospace company still doing significant manufacturing in California. There used to be over a dozen car plants in California, and California used to be the center of aerospace manufacturing. My companies are the last two left.”

“For myself, yes, I have moved to Texas. We’ve got the Starship development here in South Texas where I am right now. We’re hopefully going to do a launch later today. And then we’ve got big factory developments just outside of Austin for Giga Texas,” he added.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, blamed America’s tradition of individualism and independence for making the COVID-19 pandemic much worse.

Speaking with the Washington Post this week, Fauci said that “independent spirit in the United States of people not wanting to comply with public health measures has certainly hurt us a bit.”

“There are people in various parts of the country who still believe that [coronavirus] is a hoax, that it’s fake — even when in their own state the hospitals have been overrun with patients in the hospital beds and in the intensive care unit,” Fauci lamented.

Fauci’s comments echo what he said in early November, admonishing Americans for not doing what the government tells them to do.

“I was talking with my U.K. colleagues who are saying the U.K. is similar to where we are now, because each of our countries have that independent spirit,” he said at the Washington National Cathedral. “I can understand that, but now is the time to do what you’re told.”

In the same interview with the Washington Post, Fauci advised Americans to cancel Christmas, noting that he and his wife would not be hosting their daughters this year.

“They are not going to come home … That’s painful. We don’t like that,” he said. “But that’s just one of the things you’re going to have to accept as we go through this unprecedented challenging time.”

Fauci simply advised people to look forward to future Christmases.

“You try to explain: you’re going to have many more Christmases ahead of you. You’ve enjoyed many more Christmases before. Maybe this is a time to just say, ‘This is an unusual situation, it’s not going to last forever,’” he said.

“So make the choice and keep yourself and your family healthy so that you’ll have many more Christmases ahead of you,” he added. “That’s the way I would try to reason with them.”

Fauci was recently included among PEOPLE magazine’s “People of the Year” list where he was praised for being the “doctor America needed in 2020.”

“Dr. Anthony Fauci stepped up to be the doctor America needed in 2020, providing steady guidance during the pandemic,” said PEOPLE. “Even though he and his family were getting death threats, he continued to be out front, reassuring us during turbulent times with his devoted public service, unflappable common sense, and life-saving leadership”

“A hard year? Yes. But we’re coming out stronger,” the magazine added.

Fauci told PEOPLE that he stayed focus during the pandemic by grabbing himself by the “bootstraps” and just doing it.

“You stay focused because you just do it. You dig deep, you grab yourself by the bootstraps and you say you’ve got to do it,” he said. “There’s no other alternative because if you don’t do it you’re going to fail, and failure isn’t an option. So there’s no room at all to get distracted, and there’s no room at all to give up. You just have to keep going.”

Fauci also lamented how the “divisiveness” among Americans “makes it much more difficult to address a public health outbreak.”

“When you have an outbreak, everyone needs to pull together because everyone is in it together. When you have obvious sharp differences, politically and otherwise, that gets in the way of a unified response,” he said. “I mean I’ve been doing this for 36 years as director of the institute. I’ve seen disagreements. I’ve seen political issues get in the way over the 36 years, but I’ve never seen the extent of the divisiveness which leads to hostility against public health measures.”

During a time when multiple cop shows and even sit-coms are adopting Black Lives Matter sloganeering, CBS’ “Blue Bloods” bucked that trend by choosing to side with the police for once.

According to Newsbusters, the show’s December 4 episode “Triumph Over Trauma” went as far to reject the charge of “systemic racism” in the NYPD.

“The December 4 season premiere ‘Triumph Over Trauma’ sees Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) arguing with City Council Speaker Regina Thomas (Whoopi Goldberg) over ‘systemic racism and oppression’ in the police,” reported the outlet. “Rather than roll over and take it like every other network show, Frank stands up for his officers and shows no fear in telling the Speaker to stop disparaging the police.”

As the episode unfolds, Frank and Regina continually spar over the merits of police in the city while he routinely rejects the charge that his officers are overwhelmingly racist or that bad cops go undisciplined. As the episode closes, Frank even considers resigning from his position until Deputy Commissioner Garrett Moore (Gregory Jbara) extolls him for having the courage to “speak the unpopular or inconvenient truth.”

In the wake of George Floyd’s death, shows have been under pressure to push more content promoting the messaging of Black Lives Matter, especially cop shows. Last month, rapper Ice-T told TMZ that “Law & Order: SVU” will tackle police brutality and racial profiling.

“In the season finale, I killed a black man. So now you’ve got Fin, going through the mental dilemma, like can he be a police officer in these times. And the last thing he ever wanted to do was to be a cop that shot a black man and killed him in front of his family. So, you’ll see my character go through that and question whether he can continue to be a police officer,” he said.

Simultaneously, the character of Olivia Benson, played by Mariska Hargitay, will be dealing with internal questions of her own racial bias.

“You’re gonna see Mariska deal with the challenge of, ‘Is she racist?’” he said. “We have this ‘Karen’ situation where we pick up this black guy, but did we profile him? Was implicit bias involved? Why didn’t we question the white lady?”

In an op-ed for The Washington Post earlier this year, Alyssa Rosenberg argued that such shows should be canceled entirely.

“There’s no question that it would be costly for networks and studios to walk away from the police genre entirely,” Rosenberg wrote. “Canceling Dick Wolf’s ‘Chicago’ franchise of shows would wipe out an entire night of NBC’s prime-time programming; dropping ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ and a planned spinoff would cut even further into the lineup.”

Rosenberg went on to argue how Hollywood and police departments have been collaborating on projects throughout the years, leading the industry to show police only in a positive light.

“For a century, Hollywood has been collaborating with police departments, telling stories that whitewash police shootings and valorizing an action-hero style of policing over the harder, less dramatic work of building relationships with the communities cops are meant to serve and protect,” she writes. “There’s a reason for that beyond a reactionary streak hiding below the industry’s surface liberalism.”

Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore urged Trump supporters to wear masks, arguing that it would lead to fewer Republicans for future elections.

In an Instagram post on Wednesday, the “Bowling for Columbine” director said that love and loyalty for Trump is not worth facing death.

“I have two words for MAGA Nation: Don’t Die,” he said.

“Your love of and loyalty to Trump isn’t worth your life,” he added. “With 73 million of you refusing to wear a mask and to social distance, there’ll be no way to eradicate this disease. And a lot of you are going to die.”

As he went on, Michael Moore likened the death rate to al-Qaeda killing Americans every 37 seconds.

“Why do you want to infect your spouse, your parents, your children? By now, despite your bluster and anger, I KNOW that YOU know that this pandemic is real,” he said. “One person is dying every 37 seconds? What do you think that is? If al-Qaeda started killing one American every 37 seconds, what would you want to do about that? Why are you doing NOTHING to stop this slaughter? What will it take for you and I to join, arm in arm, to kill Covid-19? The death of your mother? Your son? Where’s the exact line where you’ll say enough is enough?”

Moore then cited the many long-term disabilities that some people infected with COVID-19 suffer, including a loss of taste and smell as well as a loss of balance.

“Those are the long term disabilities that many people who don’t die from the virus end up with. At what point will you just say, ‘to hell with politics and politicians — I want my family to live!’” he implored.

Moore then assured those Trump supporters that he was reaching out from a concerted desire to see those people live.

“So today I am reaching my hand out to you, my neighbor, my fellow American. I do so out of love and respect and the deep desire to see you live,” he said. “Let’s agree to wear a mask. Let’s agree to keep our physical distance. This isn’t forever! We can lick this thing!”

Finally, in an appeal to self-interest, Moore asserted that “millions” of Republican voters will die off if they flout social distancing.

“Look at it this way — if millions of you die off, that’s a lot less Republican voters — and that means we win every election from here on out! Do you want your loved ones who are left behind to be ruled by US?” he asked. “Because when you’re gone, we’re gonna make sure every single one of them has free health care, free college, a middle class wage, and living in a neighborhood with all kinds of people — and in cities and states being run by women! And I’m going to see that that all happens — all because you wouldn’t wear a 50-cent mask!”

Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has now called for the release of cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted for the 1981 murder of police officer and U.S. Army veteran Daniel Faulkner.

During a virtual news conference on Monday, Kaepernick called upon the Philadelphia district attorney’s office to release Abu-Jamal, claiming that he was framed after falling prey to police brutality.

“Mumia has been in prison longer than I’ve been alive,” Kaepernick said in the press conference, later adding: “Since 1981, Mumia has maintained his innocence. His story has not changed.”

“Mumia was shot, brutalized, arrested, and chained to a hospital bed,” the former football player added.

Kaepernick emphasized that the Black Lives Matter movement demands that Abu-Jamal be released from prison so that his legacy matters.

“We’re in the midst of a movement that says Black Lives Matter, and if that’s truly the case, then it means that Mumia’s life and legacy must matter,” he said. “And the causes that he sacrificed his life and freedom for must matter as well.”

As reported by Newsbusters, Abu-Jamal was a former member of the Black Panthers who had as many as four witnesses testify that he murdered Officer Faulkner.

“Employed by a radio station, Abu-Jamal was a member of the Black Panthers. During a routine traffic stop in Philadelphia in 1981, Faulkner stopped a vehicle belonging to Abu-Jamal’s younger brother William Cook,” the outlet reported. “A physical confrontation ensued, and Abu-Jamal, who was nearby at the time, shot Faulkner in the back and in the face, the latter shot while the officer lay bleeding on the ground. Four witnesses testified to this.”

“Abu-Jamal was also shot in the confrontation and, while recovering in a hospital, admitted he shot the policeman and said he hoped Faulkner would die,” the report added.

Back in 2016, Kaepernick launched a protest movement when he said that America has been allowing cops to “murder” black people and demanded that police officers undergo further training.

“People of color have been targeted by police,” Kaepernick said. “So that’s a large part of it, and they’re government officials. They are put in place by the government. So that’s something that this country has to change. There’s things we can do to hold them more accountable. Make those standards higher. You have people that practice law and are lawyers and go to school for eight years, but you can become a cop in six months and don’t have to have the same amount of training as a cosmetologist.”

Following the violent protests and riots in response to George Floyd’s death at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, Colin Kaepernick opposed civil protests, arguing that civility “leads to death.”

“When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction,” Kaepernick tweeted. “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance. We have the right to fight back!”

Now that President Donald Trump has smashed the media’s characterization of him as a racist after garnering more black and Latino votes than he did in 2016, commentators are now scrambling to figure out how it happened.

On Thursday, Al Sharpton of MSNBC said that Trump successfully appealed to the entrepreneurial spirit in those communities, admonishing Democrats for not doing the same.

“He has done better than, in my judgment, he should have with Black men and Hispanics, which means that we’ve got to really look in the civil rights community, both on the Latino and the African American side, on a real conversation in our communities on what it is to be different in terms of being entrepreneurial aspirants and being fair in terms of how we look from the whole,” Sharpton said on “Morning Joe.”

“I think he appealed to some that wanted to feel that they had to be a certain kind of way to be aspirational and that you can be that and still be centrists,” he continued.

On the issue of Joe Biden’s involvement in the 1994 crime bill, Sharpton said that too many did not understand that the former vice president was simply going along with what the leadership said at the time.

“I think that a lot of them bought into the false view they were putting out on Joe Biden with the crime bill rather than dealing with the fact that Joe Biden was going along with the majority of people, even in the Black leadership with the Black crime bill,” said Sharpton.

Going forward, Sharpton said that Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) are going to have to work to capture those communities if they win the White House.

“I really believe there is going to be a lot of work in those areas,” he said. “If we ignore it, or act like it doesn’t matter, I think is not wise and I think if Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, if they’re successful, are going to have to really work.”

As noted by Fox News, Charles Blow of The New York Times was distraught over Trump’s gains with minorities.

“This is so personally devastating to me: the Black male vote for Trump INCREASED from 13% in 2016 to 18% this year. The Black female vote for Trump doubled from 4% in 2016 to 8% this year,” Blow tweeted. “Also, once again, exit polls show a majority of White women voting for Trump.”

“Also, the percentage of LGBT voting for Trump doubled from 2016. DOUBLED!!! This is why LGBT people of color don’t really trust the White gays. Yes, I said what I said. Period,” he continued. “Also, the percentage of Latinos and Asians voting for Trump INCREASED from 2016, according to exit polls. Yet more evidence that we can’t depend on the “browning of America” to dismantle White supremacy and erase anti-Blackness.”

The Girl Scouts were not the only organization to issue a non-partisan tweet congratulating Amy Coney Barrett only to delete it after a woke mob descended upon their Twitter page. Apparently, the Kappa Delta sorority, of which Amy Coney Barrett was a member, also deleted their congratulatory post.

“To our sisters and others who were hurt by yesterday social media post or subsequent removal, we are deeply sorry,” the sorority said in a statement. “Our approach was disappointing and hurtful to many. We do not intend to enter into a political debate, take a stand on the supreme court nomination, caused division among our sisters, or alienate any of our members. We now understand that was the impact.”

“Earlier this year, we began an intentional journey for the betterment of our organization, with a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion,” it continued. “Part of this process is recognizing we always need to have a more diverse group at all tables to make decisions in a more holistic, inclusive manner. Going forward, we will.”

“Our mission encourages members to be responsible, engaged citizens who act on issues that are important to them. Your voices help us recognize the impact of our communications and how we can do better moving forward thank you for holding us accountable,” it concluded.

The Girl Scouts of America caved into the pressure after a cadre of woke scolds excoriated them for daring to congratulate Justice Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the 5th woman on the Supreme Court.

“Congratulations Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the 5th woman appointed to the Supreme Court since its inception in 1789,” the Girl Scouts stated as they shared an image of the other women who served on the court, both Left and Right: Justices Elena Kagen and Sonia Sotomayor; former Justice Sandra Day O’Connor; and the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

For that, the woke mob came fast and fierce, demanding that the Girl Scouts remove the post at once.

“Girl Scouts, this tweet is really disappointing and won’t age well when access to safe abortion and the healthcare needs of millions of women and girls is gutted in this country because of Barrett’s addition to the court,” tweeted left-wing actress/activist Amber Tamblyn.

“What kind of patch does one earn for uplifting a woman who is the antithesis of justice?” tweeted Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).

After enough backlash, the organization finally deleted the tweet and released a statement.

“Earlier today, we shared a post highlighting the five women who have been appointed to the Supreme Court. It was quickly viewed as a political and partisan statement which was not our intent and we have removed the post,” the organization. “Girl Scouts of the USA is a non-political, nonpartisan organization. We are neither red nor blue, but Girl Scout GREEN. We are here to lift up girls and women.”

Reporter Megyn Kelly and other media figures were forceful in their criticisms of the Girl Scouts.

“This is pathetic @girlscouts. It’s not “partisan” to generically congratulate the 5th woman ever to join the High Court. It’s patriotic. Taking your tweet down *is* partisan, however, and a real disappointment,” she tweeted.

As noted by Fox News, critics of the Girl Scouts’ decision were outraged over the hypocrisy, given that they previously engaged with former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in a non-partisan exchange.

“Why is it so important to have female political #leadership in the United States? @HillaryClinton explains,” the organization tweeted in 2013.

President Trump gets a roasting in a new song released by Demi Lovato on Tuesday called “Commander in Chief.”

The cover art for the song, released on Vevo and Lovato’s social media, feature’s Lovato wearing a mask with the word “Vote” emblazoned across her mouth. According to Fox News, she originally performed the song at the Billboard Music Awards on October 14.

The lyrics for the song are standard fare, characterizing the president as some kind of evil, power-hungry sociopath while encouraging his opponents to fight for justice. Essentially, nothing particularly original.

“We were taught when we were young/ If we fight for what’s right there won’t be justice for just some/ We won’t give up, stand our ground/ We’ll be in the streets while you’re bunkering down. Loud and proud, best believe/ We’ll still take knee/ while you’re Commander in Chief,” she sings.

“Commander in Chief, honestly/ If I did the things you do, I couldn’t sleep/ Seriously, do you even know the truth?/ We’re in a state of crisis, people are dying/ While you line your pockets deep/ Commander in Chief /How does it feel to still be able to breathe?” goes the chorus.

Though the Left will inarguably celebrate Lovato’s new anthem, her more right-of-center followers were not so enthusiastic.

“I hope you realize this makes people that don’t have the same political views feel like they can’t listen to you anymore. We could care less what you post about politics but this song is going to at to [sic] far especially when the majority of your family is Republican,” said one Instagram user. “I’m personally ashamed to be a Lovatic right now but no matter how hard it is I’m not letting this song change my feelings about you especially after everything you have helped me with. I really hope this doesn’t ruin your career Demetria.”

The singer responded to the critic, arguing that she still has a right to express her political opinions as a celebrity.

“You do understand as a celebrity, I have a right to political views as well? Or did you forget that we aren’t just around to entertain people for our entire lives.. that we are citizens of the same country and we are humans with opinions as well?”

Demi Lovato jumped into the political fray over the summer when she wrote in a Vogue op-ed that she hated knowing that she shared the same skin color as those who have been accused of killing black people.

“All I knew was that I hated that I shared the same skin color as the people accused of committing heinous crimes against Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and many, many other Black lives,” she wrote. “After taking some time to educate myself, what I’ve learned is that to be a good ally, you need to be willing to protect people at all costs. You have to step in if you see something happening that’s not right: a racist act, a racist comment, a racist joke. And it’s not just with Black Lives Matter. It’s also with the Me Too movement. Finally, the world is waking up and it’s beautiful to witness.”
