A Letter to PJ, Marc, and Cam

If Stephon Clark cannot be safe in his grandmother's backyard, how can I expect you to be safe and secure? We have sat and talked about how to act in public; how to speak to others; and most importantly, how to act around and speak to the police and security guards.

The Success of Malcolm: The Death of a Dream

This was an interesting post about the recent events, racial movements such as Black Lives Matter, and equality. I would love to hear your thoughts. I’ve been having a hard time with the recent Dallas shooting of 12 police officers, almost entirely because the progressive people who I have on my Facebook friends list, who [...]
