24 Beautiful Moments From The George Floyd Protests This Weekend

Over the weekend, protests against police brutality sparked by the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin took over the country. In some places, fires were set, glass was broken, and corporate storefronts were looted. There is a lot of debate over who is responsible for the property damage, but one thing is certain: the media loves reporting on burning cop cars much more than they love reporting on peaceful protestors marching for justice.

Twitter user @tomakeupwityou started a thread for “beautiful moments during the protests that the media won’t show,” because people should see these things, too.

Many people joined in to show clips or pictures from the protests in their cities, creating a long thread of people dancing, chanting, walking peacefully, and kneeling in silent protest of police violence against Black men and women. There is a lot more of this sort of demonstration than anything else.
