This is unsurprising bullshit.
The grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case is not justice. To only bring three charges of wanton endangerment, none of them directly related to the death of Breonna Taylor, is just plain bullshit.
While this decision is terrible, it is unsurprising. The problem is not that one officer or one grand juror is racist. The problem is that the entire system, top to bottom, is racist. This is the expected outcome of a criminal justice system which is rooted in white supremacy.
In response to this decision, the Louisville Pride Foundation is immediately giving $1,000 in unrestricted funding from our Social Justice Fund to each of the following organizations:
- Black Lives Matter Louisville
- The Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression
- The Bail Project
- Change Today, Change Tomorrow
We invite you to donate to our Social Justice Fund, or directly to the organizations above. The Louisville Pride Foundation established the Social Justice Fund in June 2020 to support social justice and human dignity, with a focus on anti-racist work.
