Did not like the blanket statement by Ava DuVernay: that when "people" saw the looting they stopped the compassion for George Floyd's death. "I was with them but now..."- I was in NYC during the protests - which were mostly positive (the first night of burning police cars and throwing bottles of urine at the heads of police NOT humane but were"outside" agitators)- I saw powerful protests and yes, once it got dark- "other people arrived"- these were not the protestors (even though they were disguised to blend in: BLM shirts) they were just there to loot the stores of lower Fifth Avenue. My friends and I did not "conflate" the two groups-and whatever "news" outlets did conflate these groups -were not listened to. Very important & Good series.
I am sorry Black people have to continually have these conversations. With that said, it is vital for white people to listen to Black voices during our current nationwide civil unrest. The voices of this series are able to uncover the layers of complex issues within our society and point us in the right direction.
This was an excellent conversation and I'm glad Oprah organized it. I wish it had been longer, there is so much to discuss. It was good to hear experts discuss the issues from many points of view, and I am glad they included things people can do to help.
What I didn’t like is Amazon considering this one and done free viewing an order. Regardless that there is no cost I have to remain hyper vigilant that there will be one in the future as more episodes are added. This is predatory.
