Summer Taylor, a non binary Black Lives Matter activist who was hit by a car while protesting on the I-5 freeway in Seattle, has died. Dawit Kelete, who is black, is accused of being the driver & was arrested. pic.twitter.com/Lr6Jp3BkzO— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) July 5, 2020
One of the chicks who got ran over died. She died defending a system that will probably work to make sure she and the man driving the car are forgotten about. She left behind a body covered in pop culture garbage. pic.twitter.com/T4fwzdtwbE— Happy Little Painter Of Light (@painter_white) July 5, 2020
“Summer has been there since Day One standing up for Black lives. Staying out all day and night, while still working full time taking care of animals,” Hoberecht said. “Summer talked me about the protests, and how incredible it was to be a part of something so huge. A part of history.”
She died as she lived … fighting racism.
Unlike Heather Heyer and George Floyd, Summer Taylor will be forgotten by next weekend like David Dorn or the 14-year-old black kid who was shot and killed in CHAZ/CHOP. Deaths only matter so long as they can be used by the media as propaganda fodder to push the right narratives.
Note: Summer Taylor’s deracinated body reflects the sickness and shallowness of American popular culture. Anthropologists should study it and others like it to understand liberal cultures.
