Thank you Mimi Jones — Shame on YOU, America.

As we fight for racial justice & Equity for all, let’s not forget the injustices faced by those who came before us and the evil they endured.

Rest in power Mimi Jones. No moral human being commits evil acts against other human beings like what you endured in your lifetime. The atrocities against Black lives — and others —that are never taught in history books, should stir our souls to take action.

#BlackLivesMatter — still. Ms. Jones lived for justice for the rest of us.

We have choices. You are either for OR against racial justice & equity. You either deplore the person who commits acts, like: pour acid into the pool where children swim;

Or place your knee on the neck of a man until he dies;

Or shoot a woman to death in her bed as she slept;

Or shoot a 12-year old child playing with a toy gun;

Or lunch a man or woman;

Or chase down & shoot a man on the street;

Or arrest a woman & say she committed suicide while in custody for no reason;

Or suppress the votes of Americans;

Or fire 137 bullets into a stopped CSR;

Or deny people in need their healthcare;

Or force people to return to work;

Or pay yourself & family & tell people they need to be “incentivized” to return to jobs that no longer exist;

Or cage children & separate families;

Or mock the disabled;

Or assault women & deny it in tweets, not courts;

Or lie profusely;

Or tell people they’re not welcome because they don’t look, love or worship like you;

OR you condone it with your silence & with your vote.

So much makes me wanna holla — and it fires me up to act any way I can.

I will vote and call and march and donate and educate and write and stand.

What will you do?

I invite you to take 2 to 5 minutes for a glimpse of what I think about issues of the day. Nonpartisan, yet, some might not agree - just don’t be disagreeable.
