You’re preaching to the choir, sister.

Can you imagine the profound impact on future generations if all that effort wasted on the self-defeating BLM movement building hate was used to promote family values? Imagine a movement that promotes in black youth the idea that education was cool. That its daughters are not going to get pregnant before marriage and thereby make it far more likely that their kids are impoverished and/or in a gang and in jail or dead by 30.

Imagine black youth instilled with an understanding the death sentence of being in a gang. That getting in a gang is like getting cancer. “Dude. Youre in a gang!?! I’m so sorry! Is there anything I can do to help your family while you’re stuck dealing with that?”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
