I started this piece with a heavy heart and so it lingered. I actually abandoned it because I just wanted to tune out… Sometimes I just can’t come to grips with the world. But with recent events…No…I simply couldn’t curl up.
Black Americans are disproportionately targeted in a violent manner, with little to no consideration, and it simply has to stop! African Americans are at the mercy of a system that was never designed to protect all people. Racism is real — it is a problem on the individual and systemic level. Justice is much deeper than an arrest, it is the quality of genuine respect for people with fair and reasonable administration of a society’s laws. And I do hope that justice is served at the end of all this.
