How Safe Is It For Kids Going Back To School Coronavirus And News

Capitol Building Riot, Censorship, News, Politics, Black People
As Americans watched Wednesday, an angry mob of mostly white people stormed the U.S. Capitol, seeming to overwhelm Capitol Police, who struggled to contain the violence.

Many people saw in the images and videos that poured out of the Capitol more than a disturbing breach of security by people who believe Trump's baseless claims of election fraud. They said they saw white privilege and double standards and questioned whether the police response would have been the same had the rioters been Black or brown people or their allies.

His naked, enthusiastic appeal to the promoters of white racism and white nationalism has been front and center from the very beginning. So how can we truly be surprised when the chicken came home to roost on the Capitol steps?
