This past week, I took time off from posting on social media and instead, took the time to educate myself on the racial injustice that African Americans face. I am saddened that it has taken an event like this to further educate myself but from here on out I will speak up and stay educated. I was raised to not see people by color or see people by whom they love but to rather see people for how they treat others. I have friends of all ethnicity. I have friends who are straight, who are gay, who are lesbians. To me, I love them for who they are but many others can’t say the same. I ask that you please use the information in this post to further educate yourself and to keep talking. We must stop spreading hate and learn to spread love.
