"It really is an incredible sight," the news anchor admired on September 10, 2022. "[They're] talking about their journey here, their memories of the Queen, their good wishes for the new King."
But the thousands gathered in London were NOT mourning the Queen. They were marching for 24-year-old Chris Kaba - who was shot and killed by Metropolitan Police.
In the U.K., police are 4x as likely to use force against Black people. In England and Wales in 2019, Black people were even 40x more likely to be stopped and searched.
So no matter what white media had to say, there's something huge to fight for.
"I would encourage everyone to have stamina," rapper Stormzy addressed the crowd. "... they get away with it, because what happens is we do this once, we get tired, we tweet, we get tired … and they know we get tired."
"... they've killed someone. We can't sugarcoat it."
Anti-Black violence is GLOBAL. But just because the media and police don't prioritize and humanize us, doesn't mean we don't have the power to keep fighting for each other.
