Can I speak to the manager? "I am the manager."

Good Trouble. Say Their Names.

Can I speak to the manager?

"I am the manager."

"I can't breathe."

"He can't breathe."

Momma

A knee on his neck

Did the Twin Cities feel like home?

18 yards from Houston to Minneapolis

It took nine minutes to bring the "gentle giant"

To "the man who changed the world"

You never wanted your team to feel bad for too long

You tried to lighten the mood

There is violence in the streets

There are police in riot gear

There is red paint

But you touched the world

Fulfilling that wish through injustice

You are not an anomaly.

Amongst the chaos

People are dancing in the streets

Between tear gas and rubber bullets

They are going 18 yards

Lightening the mood

For you. For Breonna Taylor.

Stephon Clark. Alton Sterling.

Trayvon Martin. Freddie Gray.

Eric Garner.

For and with John Lewis.

Many more names I could not fit on this page

Or a counterfeit twenty-dollar bill

And for that, there is good trouble.

No one can promise not to feel bad for too long

But we'll lighten the mood for the team

And change the world

Jacob Blake

George Floyd

Say their names.
