SPEAKING TRUTH

Our children are still being failed by teachers, schools, and the education system. Our people are still being paid less, denied opportunities, and murdered by police officers. The white people we call neighbors and friends are still apathetic to our condition and it is confusing. It’s confusing to see the systems working the way they were designed to, yet still needing to convince people around me of the dire need of a systematic change.
