A friend of mine, who is black, mentioned that they need to start exercising again. I asked what they plan to do. The person replied, I will definitely join a gym, if I am going for a jog in the public, the police will interpret as me running from something. As I ran that scenario through my mind, it almost seemed comical, but my friend was serious.
All this heated debate about kneeling during the National anthem has me thinking of Frederick Douglas speaking about the Fourth of July, I had to give it another read.
Not saying anyone is right or wrong, just saying it would go a long way to seek to understand versus yelling into the ether of the internet.
