BLM Activist Asks When People ‘Ready to Get Blood on Their Hands?’
An activist speaking at Black Lives Matter Plaza asked how long before “people are really ready to get blood on their hands” to make change happen. His call to action came during a “Jail Killer Cops” rally in Washington, DC, on Friday evening.
“Voting is not gonna bring us this (change),” Rahim B., a 21-year-old activist, said during a “Jail Killer Cops” rally held Friday night in the nation’s capital. “We voted in the new president, Joe Biden, but I told folks straight up — Joe Biden ain’t gonna do nothing for us because Joe Biden was in office as the vice-president when the Black Lives Matter movement started and ain’t nothing changed.”
“We’ve been protesting for a really long time,” Rahim continued. “How much longer can we protest and march in the streets before we are ready, really ready, to get blood on their hands because one of these days, it’s going to have to come to that.”
Earlier in his speech, Rahim said he was ready to “dedicate my life to change.”
“Bringing about that change is not going to always be pretty, and it’s not going to be peaceful,” he predicted. “I don’t condemn who loot, I support them for looting. I support people who take matters in their own hands. If you want to set something on fire, go do that.”
Rahim said fathers are not in people’s lives because the system is killing them.
“The system is killing people every single day,” he explained. “In the courtroom, you got people locked up doing 20 years, facing life sentences, for crimes they didn’t commit.”
“How far are you willing to go for this justice?” Rahim asked.

A protester in Washington, DC, blamed U.S. capitalism, white supremacy, and patriarchy for holding people of color down. His comments came during a “Jail Killer Cops” demonstration on Friday evening.
“The United States talking about they don’t have no political prisoners, and it’s the beacon of human rights and democracy around the world when it’s exactly the opposite,” Netfa Freeman, Pan-African Community Action organizer began. “It thwarts movements for democracy around the world.”
He explained that the U.S. tries instead to protect its capitalist and imperialist interests around the world.
“The working-class people are the victims of the United States foreign policy agenda,” he continued. “The mirror of that United States foreign policy agenda is the domestic agenda. They have to keep the working-class — particularly black and brown people in the United States — to colonize and settle colonialism and capitalism and patriarchy — they have to keep us down.”
“We’re the conscious folks that are rising up that make them nervous, that make them have to keep in place a police force,” Freeman concluded. “That’s what it’s for — to protect and preserve the settler coloniast [sic] projects which is the three-headed hydra of colonialism, white supremacy, and patriarchy.”
Freeman previously worked as the Institute for Policy Studies Director of Social Action and Leadership School for activists (SALSA), according to the organization’s website. He currently works as the organization’s events coordinator for other projects within the institute.
Freeman spoke during the “Jail Racist Killer Cops!” event at Black Lives Matter Plaza on Friday evening.
