I look at my history as a tool, a rulebook, to help us fight for the rights of Black people. The young people are protesting, now we need our Black leaders to guide us. This is when you guys come in. Now, I am not saying that no one isn’t fighting in their own way. But protesting can do only so much. We need to sustain what we are protesting or fighting for. We need to do more — if we don’t, things will not change.

Fathers Worthy of Praise

I know it’s not Father’s Day yet, but this is honestly my favorite time of the year because we get to honor the fathers and the men who stand in their place. We need to do it, especially at a time like this. Let’s honor our fathers all the time!
