“When someone resists arrest and they attempt to walk away, which happens often... that, in and of itself, is not carte blanche to use deadly physical force, period.” — Prof Kirk Burkhalter, New York Law School

“We’re here to demand an end to police violence and systemic racism in Kenosha. No more piecemeal reforms and useless committees. No more Band-Aid solutions over the bullet wounds. The time for transformational change is now.” — Tanya McLean, friend of Blake family

“The image of Jacob Blake being shot seven times in the back provided a reminder that this is not a branding opportunity. The result is a group of predominantly Black men and women who have decided to tie the rhetoric into a primary demand: They will be allowed to be admired for their wondrous athletic gifts, but accompanying those gifts is their humanity. They do not exist solely for the entertainment of the public, especially a white public that often seems to thrive on diminishing Black pain.” — Howard Bryant, senior writer, ESPN

“Much of California was on fire. An awesome hurricane was ravaging the Louisiana coast. The coronavirus, which has killed 180,000 people in the United States, was not contained. The streets seemed overrun with armed militiamen. The police were still targeting Black people. In North Carolina, at the Republican National Convention, the president and his supporters – whose job is to take these crises seriously – were instead playing a kind of game, trying to frighten people with fake emergencies while running away from the real ones. In Florida, a group of professional basketball players – whose job is to play a game – looked at the state of the country and responded seriously. If they couldn’t solve the real emergency, they could do more than the country’s leaders seem willing to do: They could ask you to see it.” — Brian Phillips, staff writer, The Ringer

“Hell yeah, I’m mad. But understand: When you get angry, you lose control of your nature. We need to capitalise with love, baby. Because they can’t beat us. They can’t defeat us.” — Jacob Blake Sr, father of Jacob Blake
