THE BASICS: Stacey Patton of the Washington Post argues we should stop forgiving white racists because forgiveness serves as a form of protecting whiteness due to the fact that black people are already rushed to forgive white people after they commit horrendous atrocities against the black community. Amde Mengitsu of Vice pleads for a less cynical view of protesting because civil disobedience had the power to spread love and acceptance. Steven W. Thrasher of The Guardian writes that defunding the police is instrumental in supporting black lives since that money could be redirected towards investing in supporting the futures of black Americans.
