Mark…thank you, man. Really. You dropped some serious wisdom here, and it connected with me. I would like to share this piece with you and your readers that I posted on FB, if you don’t mind:
Before I leave my house every morning, I suit up.
Thank you for writing this Mark. You’re right — it’s important to say these things out loud and to express solidarity and support for #BlackLivesMatter. Like you, I hate the “All Lives Matter” bullshit. It’s so obviously a coded message for denying the existence of racism and for denying black people the truth of their experience in the US.
