You may be wondering why your social media feeds were been engulfed by black squares yesterday. 

 

Celebrities, corporations, music labels and sports stars vowed not to post on their accounts on what is being called Blackout Tuesday following the death of George Floyd.

 

Demonstrations have broken out across the US following the death of Mr Floyd and other allegations of police brutality against people of colour.

 

Amid a febrile atmosphere, police have clashed with protesters in cities including New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis, while Donald Trump has threatened to deploy the country's military unless state authorities stop ongoing violent demonstrations.

As I look at it, it´s not necessary a black square. It would be as right calling it a white square. Depends on if you like the color of the line or if you look at the content of the square.

Dude Rhodesia was back in the Ian Smith and Mad Mike Hore days. A few changes since then, especially its correct name.

Your above sentence seems like something out of a 1970's newspaper.

Especially his correct name. Thomas Michael Hoare.

It´s also very confusing. When did Instagram start to make commercial for Twitter?

White  lives  dont  matter as for the American fiasco theyd  be  better  off saying  stop  killing their  own.

It is quite surreal to watch Tik-Tok right now ...  About 50% is the 'normal' girls doing what they do on Tik-Tok, sexy wiggles etc ... .. The rest is from looting and demonstrations going on in US right now ... mixed in with a fair bit of Thai military personnel clips as well ...

Regardless of what currently occurs in South Africa, police are murdering black folk in America, and THAT is the point!
