You are important. Your voice matters!

I do not know what it is like to be pulled over by the police because of the color of my skin.

I do not know what it is like to be called degrading names because of my ethnic background.

I do not know what it is like to be profiled because of my race.

I do not know what it is like to be turned down on a job because of the color of my skin.

I am sorry that so many have been treated unjustly, and that it still goes on today. I do know that you are created in the image of God. You are beautiful through and through. You are smart, caring, talented, and amazing. You have a purpose on the earth, and you matter.

    …do you know what is is to embrace culture?…love your family?…walk free?…know your ancestry?…we do that…everything in life does not exist on the dark side…you have to know people to know that!

        …if you really want to know I was commenting on what she said she never experienced. It’s so general and assumptive. Pain is not our total experience. That is the situation of the uneducated, the underprivileged and the non politically and socially aware.

        …the able and educated fight for equality…we do not cry or complain.
