Packed crowds in front of the White House. No major police or military presence. Everyone packed in and sweaty. Lots of incidental contact. From a coronavirus perspective, this is the most dangerous day of the protests I’ve seen. pic.twitter.com/Ev3Bkba4xu

This is to give you a sense of what a 1.5-mile stretch of 16th street looks like today. This is by far the biggest crowd I’ve seen since I started covering these protests last Saturday. pic.twitter.com/HXLdUEw8MY

7:42 PM: Brittany Brees: ‘We Are Sorry.’

View this post on Instagram

WE ARE THE PROBLEM . I write this with tears in my eyes and I hope you all hear our hearts. I have read these quotes and scripture 1000 times and every time I read it and the words sink into my heart. I think yes this is what it’s all about…Only until the last few days ,until we experienced the death threats we experienced the hate… Did I realize that these words were speaking directly to us.. how could anyone who knows us or has had interactions with us think that Drew or I have a racist bone in our body? But that’s the whole point . Somehow we as white America, we can feel good about not being racist, feel good about loving one an another as God loves us. We can feel good about educating our children about the horrors of slavery and history. We can read books to our children about Martin Luther King, Malcolm X., Hank Aaron, Barack Obama, Rosa parks, Harriet Tubman.. and feel like we are doing our part to raise our children to love , be unbiased and with no prejudice. To teach them about all of the African Americans that have fought for and risked their lives against racial injustice. Somehow as white Americans we feel like that checks the box of doing the right thing. Not until this week did Drew and I realize THAT THIS IS THE PROBLEM. To say “I don’t agree with disrespecting the flag “.. I now understand was also saying I don’t understand what the problem really is, I don’t understand what you’re fighting for, and I’m not willing to hear you because of our preconceived notion‘s of what that flag means to us. That’s the problem we are not listening, white America is not hearing. We’re not actively LOOKING for racial prejudice. We have heard stories from men and women we have known and loved for years about the racism that occurred in their lives .. stories that were never shared or talked about because somehow they were considered normal. To all of our friends and anyone we hurt …we will do better.. We want to do better , we want to HEAR you, and we will fight for you because thinking we are not part of the problem…is checking the box it means we are are not doing enough. It’s our job to educate ourselves. We are sorry 🙏🏻 -Brittany Brees

1/ There’s been a lot on Twitter about how protests could spread coronavirus.

I recently talked to black protesters in DC. They KNOW about coronavirus. They especially know it’s killing black Americans at double the rate of others.

It’s part of why they’re out here (THREAD)
