Marches and rallies will not end violence. They are feel good spectacles that focus on blaming people who are in many instances, the victims of more types of violence than we can count.


“Marches and rallies will not end violence. They usually do not even address the root causes of violence. They are feel good spectacles that focus on blaming people who are in many instances, the victims of more types of violence than we can count. Psychic violence, economic violence, physical violence, emotional violence, state violence, ecological violence…The list goes on and on, but many of us only want to focus on interpersonal violence that occurs between black people when that is not even the bulk of violence that goes on in our society.” – Adofo Minka
