Minneapolis

Felt compelled to draw Mr. Floyd last night.

Empathy means imagining myself as a black man, never feeling completely safe while out in public.

Empathy means imagining myself as a black parent, having the heartbreaking task of educating my children that they, because of their skin color, have to be extra careful with their words and their actions, that they are second-class citizens in land of the free and the home of the brave.

Black Lives Matter is a thing because we keep acting as if black lives don’t matter. Find your empathy.
