Did you see this video going around? This guy used to be an officer in Louisville… my city. And he was still policing in a community in our area. People thought he was “a bit of a character.” He thought it was ok to encourage fellow officers to shoot Black people.
If you ever wonder why I talk about racism so much, this is an example. I’m raising Black children in a society where we never know when a “nice” person is actually wishing them dead.
And those “nice” people are around you too, so if you hear someone saying racist crap, check them. Correct them. Call them out. No matter how insignificant the comment may seem, it matters. Because my children’s lives matter.
Black lives matter.
