The Drone Video of the Capitol Hill Black Lives Matter Mural in Seattle is Very Cool!

A drone photographer took a stunning overhead photo of the Black Lives Matter mural in Seattle's CHAZ. Note that this is a repost from my other blog because I felt it was one of the coolest things I've seen this morning.

While I grew up in Seattle, and still live nearby, I haven’t been over to the Seattle protests or the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ). Excuses, excuses, but I’ m still mostly socially distancing, sticking close to home due to COVID and family responsibilities, and exploring what I can do from here. But I’m also a camera and drone owner, and the temptation has been to break out of my isolation and go over there, both to support the protest and to document.

But enough people are documenting, and the protesters would thank me for not flying a drone over them. My flying skills keep me from flying anywhere near a densely populated area at this point.

So I appreciate that Kyle Kotajarvi went out with his drone to take this footage of the enormous Black Lives Matter mural painted on the street near the rainbow crossing (which one tweeter pointed out has, unfortunately, been defaced by homophobic slurs.)

I saw an overhead photo of the mural in the Seattle Times, but it was black and white and seemed to impose the shape of the mural, the letters, atop the trees in the photo. Kotajarvi’s drone photo shows it in its full, colorful glory.

His Instagram account has a wonderful video of the mural, if you want to take a closer look. He lists the Instagram accounts of all of the artists there and offered to take donations of supplies over. The artists he mentions in his IG post are:

I thought this was worth a share today, thanks, Kyle!

It’s About Time to Make Juneteenth a National Holiday

Juneteenth is a celebration of the emancipation of the final slaves in the US. It's not a new holiday -- its first celebrations date back to the post-Civil-War era. Some companies, such as Twitter, recently announced that they're making it into a company holiday and giving employees the day off. It's time to make it a national holiday finally.

Ways to Support Black Lives Matter and Oppose Racism With More than a Hashtag

Someone on social media criticizing others for continuing with business-as-usual and posts-as-scheduled instead of posting about Black Lives Matter incited my irritation. But it did do something useful: forcing me to look at what I was doing, and what I could do to help (in ways that involved more than hashtags.)
