My son said to me yesterday that he’s having a hard time processing all of the issues surrounding Ferguson, and the execution of Eric Garner. I asked him does it make him fearful. He nodded. I asked him did he want people to stop talking about it.
He thought about it and sighed…then said no. We have to keep talking about it. This has to change.
I’m with my son.
#BlackLivesMatter isn’t going anywhere. And it shouldn’t. We have to keep talking.
My friend reminded me this week that for the cause of civil rights, Martin Luther King…
- Marched in 8 Protests
- Delivered 350 Speeches
- Wrote a Dozen Letters
- Did Countless Interviews
WE must keep talking.
