When Georgia Republicans use photos of themselves posing threateningly with long guns for their campaigns as Marjorie Taylor Greene did, is there any wonder white supremacists feel legally entitled to murder innocent black runners as they did when they shot Ahmaud Arbery?! #gapol pic.twitter.com/huibLBnI1q

During my my recent runs I think about Ahmaud Arbery and how abnormal it probably is for many to see a black person out running for fun. I know when I toe the line of a trail race I am usually the only black female. That’s why I keep showing up. It matters. #BlackLivesMattters ??♀️ pic.twitter.com/wi8uuYxzUD
