People are taking to the streets nationwide to protest the injustice of yet another member of the African American Community whose life was unjustly taken at the hands of law enforcement. They are using their voices to protest and show their angst in the perpetuation of racism. We are compelled to address this issue, as many have been subjected to racism throughout their lives as African Americans. I personally have been a target of racist attacks and denied service in restaurants simply because of the color of my skin.
I humbly ask that you join me and the Black Community in pursuing justice for ALL. Understanding that demonstrations of protest are not a Black issue, but a dire situation that requires the White voices to speak up and help create lasting change together with the African American Community.
We work together. We laugh together. We are a family. Let’s stand together now when it really matters. Join us in our demand for equality.
