Drop the Niceties: It's Well Past Time to Get Angry about Racism and Police Violence in America
The murder of two black men by police officers within 48 hours of each other has me reeling. Not only from the brutality of police, but also because this has become our new reality. I’ve held back for too long because I have friends and family in law enforcement and I have friends and family that disagree with me. I say that I don’t want to cause more conflict. Now I feel like all I’ve done is let hate continue in the name of peace.
