Jacob Blake’s sister: I’m not sad, I’m not sorry — I’m angry
Jacob Blake’s sister, Letetra Widman, speaking to the media in Kenosha on August 25 said:
“I am my brother’s keeper. And when you say the name Jacob Blake, make sure you say father. Make sure you say cousin. Make sure you say son. Make sure you say uncle. But most importantly, make sure you say human.
“Human life. Let it marinate in your mouth, in your minds. A human life. Just like every single one of y’all and everywhere around, so we’re human. And his life matters. So many people have reached out to me telling me they’re sorry that this happened to my family. Well, don’t be sorry. ’Cause this has been happening to my family for a long time, longer than I can account for.
“This is nothing new. I’m not sad. I’m not sorry. I’m angry. And I’m tired. I haven’t cried one time. I stopped crying years ago. I am numb. I have been watching police murder people that look like me for years.
“I’m not sad. I don’t want your pity. I want change!”
