The illegal statue of Jen Reid for #BLM has been removed.

The designer #marcquinnart designed this with Jen.

But as it was an illegal installation by @mtec0 in the early hours in the morning.

Unfortunately It had to be pulled down.

The sculpture’s title comes from Jen’s powerful description of her experience of standing on the plinth:

“It was like an electrical charge of power was running through me. My immediate thoughts were for the enslaved people who died at the hands of Colston and to give them power. I wanted to give George Floyd power, I wanted to give power to Black people like me who have suffered injustices and inequality. A surge of power out to them all.”


Whats your opinion on this?

So, this week Motogp is back as well and I need to say this.

Motogp, one of the most important motorsports, didn’t say or do absolutely anything in regards of the black lives matter movement.

nothing on their social medias, nothing planned during the Gps to show support to the movement. 

And this makes me think how important it is that a black driver is in F1. How important it is to have diversity everywhere, especially in power roles. Lewis, being the champion and probably the most influential driver right now, spoke up and I think that is (also) thanks to him if F1 and the teams took action and showed full support to the BLM movement (who more, who less, I know… its not been ideal but at least is something).

Motogp did nothing. NOTHING. and the teams either (at least that i know of, but correct me if I’m wrong). and to be honest I’ve only seen an handful of riders showing support to the movement (my baby Joe Roberts especially).

So this is it. Do you think that if Lewis didn’t urge F1 to do something, didn’t call out his colleagues… do you really think they would have done something? I think not. Why would they care? they’re a predominately white people sport 🤷🏻‍♀️ but thanks to Lewis they did, maybe thanks to Lewis they even “understood” the problem and they will do something about it.

but for a sport where there isn’t a single black rider, where there isn’t someone fighting for the BLM movement because they’re living it on their own skin… do nothing is easy and its exactly what they’re doing.

I find people who complain about PC culture and how it’s AlWaYs ChAnGiNg wHaT’s AcCePTaBLe really funny bc, hunny, I know. I’m a white gen Z kid and I saw it change from African American to black too, you’re not special for living longer, it’s called adapting :) it’s a survival skill :) apparently some of us lost it :) idk how to teach you this, but, to use a Boomer quote, “you learn something new everyday!” So use it, hun. Idk maybe it’s just cuz I’m the type of person who thinks it’s healthy to check yourself sometimes and reexamine your morality and views to grow as a person, even after the age they become “cemented.” Tbh, I’m more scared of becoming intolerant than changing, but maybe that’s just bc my life has already been uprooted at least twice in my short childhood. So, suck it up, sn**flakes ;) call people what they ask to be called and try not to be offended if they deviate from their identities’ norm. They’re called individuals, sweaty

On today’s news! The sky forgot what blue is and now is acting grey. I am still waiting for another tropical storm because Fay was way too easy on the East Coast and I do not trust in you, 2020. With Corona Di Virus, people are pissed at their government for their late reply to the situation. This is why, instead of counting in the supposed leaders, institutions and corporations are making the decisions to protect themselves; places like Walmart who require customers to wear masks all over their stores and the same goes for the shops of the United Kingdom. In the Dominican Republic, president Danilus Vicorius was probably in depression with a couple of drinks and bachata until he decided it was a good idea to suggest a state of emergency was necessary. So far, 45 days. In Minneapolis, Floyd’s family filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city and what is worse, a new body cam shows George’s last moments with officers cursing and forcibly pulling him out of his car while Floyd pleaded with them. In Louisville, Kentucky they will investigate Greg Fischer’s handling of Breonna’s case. Protests are still happening, outside and from home. Keep posting, sharing, and telling others. The list of lives lost due to police brutality is far too great, there is no real freedom if only a portion of the nation can enjoy it. Remember, racism is another disease affecting the world. On the tech-panel Huawei is facing international challenges after the UK announced it will ban the company’s equipment from its network. Same with The U.S. that considers Huawei a national security risk. Are you part of the Twitter family? Well, let me tell you, that some accounts were taken over by strangers to post tweets that appeared to promote a cryptocurrency scam. The accounts belonged to Joe Biden, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Kim Kardashian West, Warren Buffett, Jeff Bezos, former President Obama, and others. And if Covid19 deaths are not enough, the Supreme Court just cleared the way for another execution. This time it was Wesley Ira Purkey’s turn. People killing people isn’t that just hardcore eye-rolling material. Let me tell you something better. To eliminate plastic, Holly Grounds, graduate from Ravensbourne University London, designed ramen packaging that dissolves into hot water. She calls it “dissolvable noodle packaging”. In Kenya, a 9-year-old Stephen Wamukota is honored for inventing a handwashing machine that prevents the spread of the virus. Honestly, if it were not for these kids, the future of the world would be utopic. Today is Thursday, July 16, 2020. Day unknown of quarantine.

A statue honoring Black Lives Matter protester Jen Reid was removed by council workers in Bristol, UK, on Thursday, just one day after it was secretly put up by British artist Marc Quinn and his team.

The Bristol City Council had the statue removed by truck and is storing it until Quinn can pick it up.
