Porsha Williams Arrested Again During a Protest for Breonna Taylor

It seems Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams has made protesting on behalf of the Black Lives Matter movement her primary focus.

The reality star was arrested on Tuesday while attending a protest for Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky. She was charged with obstructing a highway and disorderly conduct in the second degree, according to a spokesperson for the Louisville Metro Police Department who spoke to People. Robert Schroeder, interim chief for the LMPD, told CNN that a large group of demonstrators “crossed several intersections, creating dangerous situations as traffic continued to try to make its way in the area.” Protesters were directed to stay on the sidewalk and those who did not were arrested, he said.

Williams shared a video and photo from the event on her Instagram, showing police beginning to arrest the protesters she was with as they sat in the middle of the road. She attended the event with her friend Yandy Smith-Harris, the Love & Hip Hop: New York star, who also shared footage of her own arrest on Instagram, writing, “Matter fact you ain’t gonna take me sitting down. I’m standing my ground‼️‼️‼️‼️”

The protest was reportedly planned by the social justice organization Until Freedom as part of a “Day of Action.” Williams was arrested along with at least 68 other people, according to CNN. This is the second time the reality star has been arrested while protesting on behalf of Breonna Taylor, the first being in July, once again alongside Smith-Harris and reportedly more than 80 others. She was also teargassed in June during a protest over George Floyd’s death, she told People at the time.

This type of civil disobedience runs in Williams’s family. Her grandfather was Reverend Hosea Williams, a prominent civil rights activist who marched with Congressman John Lewis in Selma, Alabama and brought Porsha to her first protest at age five in Cumming, Georgia for a demonstration against segregation, according to a recent New York Times profile.

“When I saw that video of George Floyd being murdered, I knew that I had to change the way I was moving,” she told the Times. “That meant now I have to sacrifice myself, my finance, my brand, my everything, and put it all on the line for change.”

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
