We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

  1. Fun video! I imagine this would be great for little kids ^-^

  2. My 9YO declared that this is "kinda cute", "sorta fun", "educational", and "cute". I hope very much that you will be able to make more.

    P.S. I like your CAPCHA, too.

  3. My 3 yr old watched it twice and wanted to watch a third time. My 1.5 yr old also liked watching it, because she liked watching Adabot.

    PS. I also really like your CAPCHA concept, but I’m colorblind.
