To remain silent is to be complicit
Let’s get something straight.
Black lives matter.
My life hasn’t always been great. I can tell stories that’ll make many of you cringe. But I am white. I grew up related to half a county sheriff’s department (through blood, friendship, or marriage).
I have privilege that thousands in this country do not. Simply because the color of their skin. And that’s wrong.
Cops should not be armed like soldiers.
They should not be targeting someone based on their race.
They damn well should NOT be killing them for that reason alone.
