One of the reasons that Black Lives Matter gives to justify their tactic of blocking freeways is that the inconvenience suffered by the “white” (?) motorists shoiuld put them in mind of the inconveniences suffered by black people.
The Met Council is making it incredibly difficult to be a commuter in the Twin Cities – to get from where one lives to where one works, and back. Commuting is the norm, not the exception. The Met Council’s mania for building trains (from where people largely aren’t, to where they largely don’t want to be) at the expense of roads has made that task even more onerous.
So let’s borrow – dare I say, “appropriate” – an idea from BLM?
Let’s gather outside the Met Council’s next meeting.
And block the hallway to the bathroom. While waving signs telling them to imagine they were trying to get to the next exit to get to a bathroom?
Can you smell the victory?
