Cities across the country are seeing protests, but that sadly results in looting. Those people who are looting do not represent the mission that this movement is trying to accomplish. Lilian Garcia made sure that message was clear.
Garcia posted a passionate message to the looters that it is not okay to do this at all. Looting is hurting business owners who were already suffering due to a pandemic. George Floyd’s death sparked a movement in America, but hate never repairs hate.
“Yesterday, I was supporting the protest to say that change had to take place and I understood the pain some of my friends were experiencing from the George Floyd death, BUT looting and vandalism is NOT ok and NOT the answer!!! Especially businesses that had NOTHING to do with Floyd’s death. They were already having a hard time due to the pandemic and now don’t even have businesses to come back to because someone felt like their agenda was more important.
HATE NEVER REPAIRS HATE!! And putting a blanket statement that all cops are bad is NOT true and NOT productive. We NEED police officers or there wouldn’t be any order in this world. And I TRULY believe there are some good cops that REALLY want to be of service.
I will ALWAYS choose to spread light in this world! That is the ONLY way to make REAL change. I hope you will be just as sad today to see what the negative actions of some have caused and choose to turn your hate and anger into something productive by spreading love. This could sound corny to some but I don’t care. It IS the ONLY way to truly make change!
Titus O’Neil spoke out about the looters and he said he can not condone it, nor can he understand. He doesn’t condone violence either, but he does understand that.
This is a frustrating time for a lot of people, but as MVP wisely said there might be people who don’t want this change so they further incite problems for the movement.
