I'm so excited that Ebony.com is running this piece I wrote about a conversation my dad and I had about race. We tend to talk about race and politics when we chat. I wanted to write a piece for the black press about my father because during the trial, his superior wouldn't allow him to reach out the black press. This means a lot to me to have a byline with Ebony, of all places.
My dad and I discuss why the justice system needs more diversity, including black prosecutors; grand juries in police brutality cases, police erasing video footage from their cameras, etc. It's really good.
There's a great discussion going on Ebony's Facebook page about this article. Feel free to weigh in.
And fitting this article would be up and running since it's my dad's birthday today.
