Hello I am a Black Man originally from Detroit, MI. I've been here over 20 years also. My comments are:
- We as an American people need to come together as one people to care, support and strengthen one another. We have too many enemies within and without the country for not to unify
- It is very true the real issue is in regards to rich and poor and the disparity in economics with people of color suffering more statistically.
- I believe it is up to each and every individual to stand for justice and overcome racism within industry, government, etc.
- I especially like to say to my African American brothers and sisters to work towards unification within their own families. My Mom says that charity starts at home and then spreads abroad.
