Maybe this isn't relevant to a Queen fan board. In which case, my apologies. But I happened upon this video just after reading these posts by people who don't live in the US, and seem confused by why "Black Lives Matter" is important -- and why the corresponding phrase "All Lives Matter" is so counter to that statement.



I think Amber Ruffin explains it in a way that makes clear why journalists emphasized George Floyd being a man of color. The skin color of the police men who killed him is less important -- what was important was the uniform they wore while doing it.

Good post! The moral of the story is if you get stopped by a cop, whether you are black or white, just cry! Just kidding sort of! The last time I got stopped I was in an unfamiliar area trying to find a Knights of Columbus Hall for a graduation party. I was going 40 in a 25 mph zone and got stopped. I didn’t cry but I looked pretty shaky since I didn’t know the area. When I told him that I was lost and showed him my party invite and didn’t know how to get to that address, he felt sorry for me, gave me directions and let me go without a traffic ticket! :D

This is another reason why I love Adam:

“@adamlambert I watched the Trump press conference today... I have NO idea what he was Rambling about! He can’t even string together a sentence. It’s literally incoherent, fragmented nonsense. I wish I could even decipher what bullshit he’s trying to sell!“

A hunch I have, he won't perform and he will mainly speak about what is happening in the world right now.

He did both and was fabulous, as usual.

Performed “On The Moon” from his “Velvet” album!
