This idea came about after much meditation on how I could use my voice and platform to make a positive impact during these intense times.
I can’t end racism. I can’t get rid of ignorance, bigotry, discrimination, classism, poverty, colorism, greed, evil or hate (and so much more). But I know how to provide access to perspective via a platform for those who are brave enough to offer theirs.
I’ve been a reading a lot of your posts on the Baltimore riots and peaceful protests, #blacklivesmatter, #alllivesmatter, systemic racism, law enforcement, government, slavery, the slew of African-American’s killed (too many to name at this point) by police officers (or wannabe’s), etc. and one thing that has been consistent is that there is a general notion that too many people don’t have enough perspective on any or all of the following:
✔what actually happened
✔who’s affected by it
✔why/how they’re affected by it
✔why people are reacting the way they are
✔what needs to be done
✔the strategy for getting it done…
And the list goes on.
So, my way of attempting be true to who I am while also being the change I wish to see (because I give a whole lot of damns about what’s going on), is to hopefully provide access to perspectives that may be lacking or simply were never conceived or acknowledged.
Maybe you’ll provide yours…
If you had the undivided attention of the United States of America, what would you say?

Until then, get enlightened, stand up for what you believe in, try your best to refrain from violence, spread love, give the gift of forgiveness and figure out a way that you can be a part of the solution, not the problem.
