"For years, with every horrific murder of an innocent black man, woman, or child, I have always tried to find the right words to express my condolences and outrage, but the privilege I am afforded by the color of my skin has often left me feeling like this is not a fight I can truly take on as my own."

I am exhausted by the heartbreak I feel seeming mothers fathers, sisters, brothers and children suffering because their loved one was murdered or locked away unjustly for being black."
