While, for years, I've supported the goals of the BLM movement toward fair treatment of all, sometimes other supporters act in ways that are contemptible. Attacking innocent people and vandalizing businesses is both wrong and counterproductive. For example, my veterinarian and friend Dr. Olga Iglikova, who operates the Dorchester Pet Clinic, was beaten and kicked in the face by women of color last week. They went into her clinic and terrorized the animals. I'm an animal rescuer, and Olga provides me and other rescuers special rates that result in our ability to help save the lives of over a thousand animals per year. Without vets who do that, animals don't get rescued. They die, period. She also cares for my animals; she and her staff have gone above and beyond for my cats and those I help rescue more times than I can say. I will always be grateful for this. Olga's clinic serves an underserved area. By providing quality vet care and charging less than other vets, she helps low-income animal lovers in Dorchester care for their animals. It's not too much to ask not to be beaten. Vandalizing businesses and attacking entrepreneurs helps no one. Small businesses like Olga's increase the prosperity of the areas in which they operate. If the climate for such businesses discourages their existence, those businesses close and people lose their jobs. I don't believe that most BLM supporters condone what happened to Olga. Most of the protests appear to be non-violent. Please, let's keep it that way.
