Good morning African America and the rest of y’all. Thank you for stopping by; I’m grateful you’ve decided to spend a bit on your long weekend with me.
Was struggling with what to say this morning; y’all know how I feel about “holidays” like this one and I know you’ve heard the “What the heck are we celebrating rant” too many times to want to hear it again. So off I go surfing for news and distraction, and after reading about a 2-year-old shot at point blank range, catching up on the Dr. Ersula Ore travesty and requesting updates on the police shooting of yet another young black man, I re-realized how desperately we need an action plan to free us from the dangers of an increasingly emboldened police state. I don’t know if what I’ve got qualifies as a plan; I’ll let y’all decide that. But this morning, instead of rehashing what we all already know about the hypocrisies in/of the land of rabid greed and the cellblock of the slave, I’d like to offer a few simple steps we can take to help protect and free ourselves from the increasing dangers of life in a police state. By the way, if your brown, poor or in any way victimized by the bastardization of to protect and serve, these steps will work for you too.
