EXACTLY. I cannot emphasize this point enough!

For anyone out there who still may be peppering their commentary with solutions to the unending wave of race-based murders of Black people by referencing respectability politics, I invite you to read this statement until it is burned into your eyelids.

Like what you read? Give Roland Martin a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
