Where is the justice for all in the land of the free? Why can federal forces marshall riot gear and violence on their own people faster than PPE and Covid tests for the people? We cannot ignore this country’s violent origins unleashed on the backs of Black people and those who stand with them in protest. Expressing our very real experiences is not low vibrational, judgmental, or negative. We are courageously sharing what clearly is, with no room to look away. See and stay with the truth. We practice yoga to be well — not to be retraumatized. Hear yoga teacher Andre Coles alongside the voice of Tamika Mallory.
