John Boyega still worries that his Black Lives Matter protest speech could harm his career

Watch: John Boyega gives speech at the Black Lives Matter protests

John Boyega has said he’s still worried that his impassioned speech at the Black Lives Matter protests over the summer could have damaged his acting career.

In an interview with the Radio Times, the Star Wars actor was asked about whether he believed there could be consequences for his speaking out.

“Absolutely. I still have those thoughts,” he said.

“I understand, looking from the outside in, it might seem ‘oh, you’ve been in this and you’ve been in that.’ But how many actors do you know who have been in big franchises? It doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re going to have stability for the rest of your life.”

University apologies for Blue Lives Matter symbol, faces calls to fire campus safety officer

University officials in California apologized to students and staff last month after a campus safety officer displayed a Blue Lives Matter emblem during a Zoom meeting on diversity. 

In an Oct. 29 email, several Santa Clara University administrators said an incident the night before “further damages the trust and faith that we are working so hard to build.”

During the virtual meeting, John Loretto, the assistant director of Campus Safety Services, had a postcard of the law enforcement symbol on a bookshelf behind him. The administrators said the symbol is “widely considered to be an effort to undermine the Black Lives Matter movement and its universally important goals,” according to the email.

Thanks To Schmidt Futures, The Keeling Curve Lives To Measure CO2 Another Day

The Keeling Curve, whose daily measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) in Mauna Loa have demonstrated how rapidly fossil fuel emissions are altering greenhouse gases, recently received $1 million in funding from the Schmidt Family’s Foundation to sustain future operations.

“More than ever, we need good data to inform our critical policy decisions, and the Keeling Curve is an essential measurement of a changing climate,” said Wendy Schmidt. The Schmidt Ocean Institute also furnished a $450,000 grant to measure changes in seawater chemistry in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Charles David Keeling initially started taking these daily measurements at Hawai’i’s Mauna Loa Observatory – as well as Arctic and Antarctic stations – in 1958. And, Keeling’ son, Ralph, has continued these efforts into the present day. Since

Overwhelmed at the juggling act of three full-time gigs – as a community college student, an employee and a mom – Justice crumbled. She ignored reminder emails from her instructors to send in her assignments. “I wasn’t comprehending what I was reading. I was looking at diagrams that made no sense.” On Zoom work meetings, she noted her pale complexion and dark under-eye circles. Her appetite disappeared. She snapped at her 17-year-old daughter, Josiah, a high school senior also cooped up inside their small apartment.
