Dream: U.S. Racism Riots

I had this dream on May 31, 2020 that I understood right away to be in regards to the protests happening this month against racism in the U.S.

I saw a billboard that had 2 very muscular, very strong Black men with barbells squatting. They were standing side by side. They were literally squatting, moving up and down as if they were alive on the billboard, as if it was a digital billboard even though it wasn’t. The barbells had a lot of weight on them. The Black man on the right side squatted at a normal pace based on the amount of weight he had on his bar. Under him, there was the name of a particular East Coast city and another word but I don’t remember what they were as I didn’t write this dream down right away.  The Black man on the left side was exercising like a mad man, frantically squatting, going up and down so fast and furious, with steam literally coming out his body, preparing hard to go fight someone, pushing himself to the limit. Under him, there was the name “Los Angeles, CA. Farm rules”. I then woke up.

Interpretation: I understood this dream to be a comparison of how the two sides of the country are or will be fighting against racism in this moment stemming from George Floyd’s death. It seems like Los Angeles, known for raising an anti-gun and pacifist banner, will handle this issue with fury instead. I’m not 100% sure of what farm rules mean but the first thing that came to mind when I woke up was that if you invade a farmer’s property to harm him or what’s his, he’ll feel in the right to come out with a shotgun, ready to shoot. No mercy. But I think it’s all about LA coming in strong against this issue, ready to fight hard.

 

Update June 9, 2020: An instagram follower who read this post suggested this dream may have to do with George Orwell’s book “Animal Farm”. I haven’t read the book but here’s a summary:
