Do we have to keep talking about racism? Yes. Do we have to keep bringing up the murdering of black people at the hands of state-sanctioned police? Do we have to keep interrupting your regular life with your regular news and your regular roads to talk about the different treatment of folks in this country, in this state, in this city, based on the color of our skin? Yes. Let's talk about it. Let's eradicate the injustice from our daily lives by talking about it. Let's come together with a spirit of inquiry and learning with the idea that maybe, we don't know everything from reading one news story or watching a few videos, and maybe - we need to keep learning, every day, every moment and realize we have a lot to learn. The U.S. will not be the land of the free until each person actually has access to the quality of life depicted in the "American Dream".
