Viewpoint: Story From People the Crypto Community Needs to Stand up and Fight Racism

By Robert Greenfield

Here we are again. Another unarmed, defenseless black man killed by the police.

Another wave of protests against police brutality and systemic racism.

Another wave of actionless, apologetic cries, willfully ignorant excuses and political re-directs about the real problem.

Since the 2012 lynching of Trayvon Martin, we have been in a cycle of videoed black murder porn, criminal immunity and corporate cowardice. In America today, being black can get you killed for driving, jogging, sleeping, yelling, parking, baby-sitting, sitting in a van, selling CDs, even eating ice cream in your own house.
