Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia.
Breonna Taylor in Kentucky.
George Floyd in Minneapolis.
Lament. Anger. Deep grief.
I was setting up my next interview/discussion on race this morning and the man I was messaging asked me if I saw what had JUST happened.
Next week… another interview/discussion on race and racism. Look for it.
But for now… in my lament… I want to draw your attention to the obvious on those three incidents that have happened to African Americans: police brutality and prosecutorial neglect.
When white folks ask what “systemic racism” means… this is what it is.
Lord… let us wake up.
