Truly then and NOW the same ignorance and malevolence toward others that always has existed of power and domination

Truly then and NOW the same ignorance and malevolence toward others that always has existed of power and domination

 

we live in a razor’s edge perhaps there will be new riots more deadly than any that ever have occurred. It is strange to have grown up in a time when rioting was everywhere and the Koerner Commission Report and the Community Action Agencies were formed with Sargent Shriver, and yet, these impulses were abandoned. Neighborhood centers were supposed to be places that were incubators for social justice and community input. The “War on Drugs,” was a race war, as Michelle Alexander and Dr. Angela Davis have educated us. WHAT prevents us from listening and responding with sensitivity, insight and determination to change

 

the President of the United States as far as is possible outlined the disparities between the way that minorities are treated and White people. Those statistics and the recommendations for change of the habits of police in operating are clearly vital for the safety of everyone including the police. It is time for us to work together to end bigotry and violence wherever and whoever perpetrates these crimes. A gun should never mean that it is possible to use excessive force on anyone or in any context. Too many times they are used for suicide as well.
