Dayshawn: A Protesting Disaster

Written by Desaree' Deckard

As you all know, the world has banned together with the city of Minneapolis, to show solidarity for George Floyd. Another unarmed black man, who was wrongfully killed by the police.  In the wake of protesting, supporters gathered at the Sacramento Main Prison downtown to send a message about the systematic racism that largely affects black males to this day. Among those peaceful protesters Dayshawn, 18, a caring young man who had the courage to stand up for his community, a comedic, light-hearted outgoing Youtuber, who just graduated high school, with plans of becoming a registered nurse. It was unfortunate that he would be cared for by nurses he sought to become, when he was hit head-on, within close range in the face with a rubber bullet, leaving a deep open wound in his face. With the rubber bullet shattering his jaw he will have to undergo surgery. While staying bedridden for the next six weeks, with liquid meals since he can no longer chew solid foods. Due to the close-range shot, that Dayshwan endured by the police.

This all his been devastating to his entire family during an already trying time. He’s been affected not only physically but mentally and emotionally. If you've been at home looking for ways to support and don't exactly know-how, we are asking for relief funds to help cover Dayshawn's medical bills, which we all know may come at a hefty price. Also any other expense that arises in the wake of the incident. As caught on camera, Dayshawn did not deserve this. He was standing in place, showing support for George Floyd alongside the courageous body of citizens Sacramento has produced. 
Please help support this young man and his family in times of need, anything helps, even sharing with people who  can. Thank you for anything and everything you can muster during this time.
