“Black lives matter. And when I say black lives matter, I emphasize and expose the fact that black and colored people, whether in prison or out in society, male or female, armed or unarmed, are systematically targeted, subjected to brutality and abuse, oppression and death at the hands of the so-called law enforcers at alarming rate. And that I refuse to accept it as I continue to struggle to support the call. Silence is complacency and unacceptable, and supporting resistance is greatly needed.”
