When I watched the video, I was both sad and frustrated. Frankly, it should outrage all of us, especially at a time when Portlanders are actively calling for the dismantling of systemic racism and the presence of racial justice. Portlanders must continue to call out and interrupt racist actions because not doing so demeans us all, and there are real spiritual costs to our community. We have a responsibility to be better than this, and the histories and contribution of our Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, Pacific Islander and people of color deserve and demand to be seen, acknowledged, and respected, period.
