It’s been a rough week to say the least.
From the shooting of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge to the killing of Philando Castile, both at the hands of white police officers, and the horrible killings of police by a sniper during peaceful protests in Dallas, our country is hurting and black people are tired.
When these type of situations arise, my instinct is to observe from afar and gather my own information. Habitually I always sort of “check out” because it affects me to my core. I cry, I can’t work, I sleep more and I’m a lot less outgoing and productive. It really throws me off because I can’t imagine how these families feel and I’m so saddened by the state of race relations in America.
But I’ve realized that this situation calls for us to leave our comfort zones and speak out, take action and really try our damnedest to turn this thing around.
I couldn’t sleep last night after the news of the Dallas Protests and so I made a video. You can watch it below.
