This book provided perspective that helps me begin to get a glimpse - to understand that I had absolutely no clue about how ugly life can be. I thought this insidious evil was behind us. Time after time I couldn't believe what I was hearing and was brought to tears. The injustices that I've witnessed here-to-fore seem paltry compared to what my fellow Americans are subjected to.
I confess that I did not understand the black lives matter movement. I was one of those folks that said "all lives matter". My child is biracial and I've always considered myself colorblind. Instead I was blind to what men and women, mothers and fathers and families of color face. I'm sickened by this horror.
I wish I knew a way to let this man's daughter, Erica Garner know how incredibly impressed I am with her tenacity and courage. I never want sweetness my father be disrespected or treated poorly by anyone. My heart would be destroyed had this happen to my father.
To every man that is been humiliated my heart breaks for you and I'm ashamed.
