Can I vent? As a mother of 4 black teenagers, 3 boys and 1 girl, I’m afraid. I’m afraid that when they walk out the door, they may not return! I pray for them every night and every morning before they go to school because they aren’t safe there either! I make sure to have “the talk” before they leave with friends. What talk you ask? The talk about what to do and not do if approached by a police officer because whether they comply or not, they could be killed. I’m sick and tired of having to have that talk! Our children are being hunted and slaughtered like animals by those who were sworn to protect them! Stay vigilant folks!
