It’s been over 100 DAYS and still no justice for #BreonnaTaylor... Today in solidarity with @untilfreedom, we demand that @DanielJayCameron arrest and charge Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, Myles Cosgrove and Joshua Jaynes.⠀
We also demand that state representatives Joni Jenkins and senator Morgan McGarvey present a statewide ban on No-Knock Warrants.⠀
Link in the third slide will draft emails to local officials for you. Adding it to my bio too. ⠀

Boys grow up to be fathers. I think about that a lot these days. We try to teach our son to love and to respect everyone — we teach him that all people are all created equal, and that no one should be treated differently because of the color of their skin. We teach him this because one day, he will go on to teach his kids the same. It’s a cycle. And right now, as we all work to undo generations of discrimination that have plagued our system and our communities across this country... I’m reminded today that the first lessons start at home. Im grateful for both of my dads and my mother for teaching me those lessons from the beginning. And for listening to me when I had something to say that they hadn’t learned. I pray for that humility with my own son. I’m grateful for my wife, who made me a father, and is my favorite person/partner/teacher/friend in all of it. I’m grateful for my son, who is always ALWAYS teaching me right back. ⠀
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there. While we owe our sons and daughters these lessons in the places where the doors close at night, I hope you are as inspired as I am to make them THE TRUTH in the places that same door opens every morning and we send them out to discover. There’s more to do. And we are built for it. After all, we are the Dads. Sending my love to you and yours.

Today @TiffanyDLoftin, the Director of the @NAACP Youth & College Division is posting from my page. She is a powerful voice for young people, and I encourage everyone to please listen and hear how she is mobilizing the next generation to dismantle racism in our homes, in our schools, and in our workplaces. People like Tiffany make me hopeful for the future of this country. @naacpyc_#blacklivesmatter

Listen to my guy @anderson._paak speak the truth. He released #LOCKDOWN last night in honor and in celebration of #Juneteenth. The people are rising. Link in my bio - go watch 💯🙌🏼
Over the next few days I wanted to share my channels with the leadership of some of the organizations I posted about the other week... people who are doing the work, fighting for justice, and laying out the steps to create necessary change. ⠀
Today, please turn your volume up for @iamrashadrobinson, the president of @colorofchange. ⠀

As a dad, this photo hurts. #RayshardBrooks was a father of three girls...1, 2, and 8 years old. He should not be dead. ⠀
Neither should #RiahMilton, #DominiqueFells, and #RobertFuller. This week, these four innocent people became victims of racism, violence, and intolerance. And we’re still waiting for Justice for #BreonnaTaylor. I’m heartbroken for their families and for this country.⠀
The system needs to change... it has repeatedly shown us that Black people in America are not safe. I’ll follow up with more resources and ways to help. #BlackLivesMatter

Yesterday I was happy to hear the other three officers were charged in the death of #GeorgeFloyd but today we continue to mourn with the family. I send my sincere condolences and prayers to them. We also know no one has yet to be charged in the death of #BreonnaTaylor so there is more work to do to bring her justice. There are crucial organizations on the ground who are doing the work to get her justice and do the work to end systematic racism. Please follow, donate and support their hard work. @colorofchange, @naacp, @mvmnt4blklives, @blackfutureslab, @byp100....
Those of us who call ourselves allies need to do everything in our power to stand with the black community right NOW. BLACK people are regularly being murdered unjustly by police. We have seen it. Over and over again. This has gone on in America for too long, and it’s NEVER been okay. We have to take action, we have to make noise.⠀
For seven whole minutes, #GeorgeFloyd pleaded for his life, while Derek Chauvin, one of Minneapolis cops involved, kneeled on his neck and ignored those pleas for help.⠀
Allies... this is the time for us all to take a hard look in the mirror, share responsibility and ask our family and friends what can we do to educate our own communities. ⠀
I stand with @ColorOfChange and countless others across the country to raise my voice alongside you, and demand that all FOUR officers involved are arrested and charged with murder now. Text FLOYD to 55156. Sign the petition. Don’t stop.

Happy Mother’s Day to my Super Hero Mother! I’m so lucky to have you as a guiding force for this crazy ride! You have taught me so much and I will always cherish every lesson. Also, you still make the best cinnamon sugar toast on the planet. I love you, Mom.
