“It’s time for us to talk...Let’s talk about it now, let’s not side step it”
“In order to stand with us, and people who look like me, you have to be educated on issues that pertain to me and fully educated, so you can understand the full level of pain. This is made for you my white brothers and sisters so that you can increase your level of compassion and lead ultimately to change.”
“Now is the time to plot, plan, strategize, organize and mobilize”
This is not the time to “stick to sports” and most people understand that.
