Protests & Pandemics_Digital

THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC HAS BEEN KICKED FROM THE HEADLINES BY THE PROTESTS HAPPENING IN OVER 140 AMERICAN CITIES. DESPITE PEOPLE HAVING TO STAY INDOORS AND SHELTER IN PLACE, THE LOCKDOWN PERIOD GAVE RISE TO SEVERAL HIGH PROFILE RACIST INCIDENTS- SPREAD AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT VIA THE INTERNET. 0.25 SEN. TIM SCOTT (R-SC) (SOURCE CBS) "MR. FLOYD IS DEAD BECAUSE AN OFFICER MURDERED HIM. MR. AUBREY IS DEAD BECAUSE TWO GUYS SHOT HIM IN THE STREET AT 1PM. FOR SOMEONE TO SUGGEST THAT THERE AREN'T RACIAL CHALLENGES AND PATTERNS IS FOR SOMEONE TO BE BLIND." 0.41 SEN CORY BOOKER (D-NJ) (SOURCE MSNBC) "THIS TYPE OF RACISIM IS SO INSTITUTIONALIZED THAT IT PUTS SO MANY OF OUR COUNTRY MEN AND WOMEN AT RISK EVERY SINGLE DAY."" FOR MANY ACTIVISTS, SOCIAL MEDIA HAS BEEN KEY- NOT ONLY TO DOCUMENT INCIDENCES OF POLICE BRUTALITY BUT ALSO TO SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT HOW TO ORGANIZE AND PROTEST. BUT THAT BRINGS NEW PROBLEMS TO THE FOREFRONT. HEALTH OFFICIALS FEAR AN INCREASED SPREAD OF THE CORONA VIRUS. THE DEMONSTRATORS ARE WEARING MASKS. BUT SOCIAL DISTANCING IS OUT THE WINDOW. OVER 4000 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN TAKING INTO CUSTODY NATIONWIDE, LEADING TO CONCERNS ABOUT CONDITIONS IN ALREADY OVERCROWDED PRISONS. 1.17 ((((SOT DR. JODY ARMOUR, USC)))) "There's a real churn of people in and out of prisons. You have people who go in and spend a night or two or three or four in a confined setting with people with a lot of viruses and infections and then go right back into the community." SEVERAL FUNDS HAVE BEEN SET UP TO PAY THE BAIL OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN ARRESTED AT THE PROTESTS BUT AS THE COUNTRY FACED INTO ANOTHER DAY OF DEMONSTRATIONS, THE PRESIDENT SAID IN A CALL TO GOVERNORS THAT THEY MUST 'GET TOUGH' WITH PROTESTORS. MANY ACTIVISTS SAY THAT'S MISSING THE POINT ARGUING THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS LONG SHOWN A DISREGARD FOR THE BLACK COMMUNITY. 1.53 ((((WISDOM COLE HEAD OF YOUTH & COLLEGE ORGANISING NAACP))))) 'WE'VE SEEN HIM TIME AND TIME AGAIN USE BLACK PEOPLE FOR POLITICAL GAIN." "HE'S MADE HIS VIEWS ON BLACK AMERICA VERY VERY CLEAR. WORDS MATTER, THE MESSAGING YOU PUT OUT MATTERS." AS VIOLENCE AND LOOTING THREATENS TO OVERSHADOW THE PURPOSE OF THE PROTESTS, ACTIVISTS ARE FACED WITH A NEW CHALLENGE, HOW TO KEEP PEOPLE SAFE WHILE STILL GETTING THEIR MESSAGE OUT TO THE WORLD.
