Fresh questions emerging from a resurgent #BlackLivesMatter movement

Techfugees have resisted pressure to release a statement on the #BLM movement, but you’ll be able to guess our stance if you’re familiar with us. It’s disgusting that Black Lives Matter has to sear itself across the world’s consciousness once again. Because it’s revolting that the murder of Afro-American people at the hands of police remains an accepted fact of life in the US.

Yet here we are again, though this time it feels different, like a tipping point.
