Ahmaud Arbery – A life cut short.
This is wrong. Say his name. 

I want to clarify my posts from May 5.

Stop telling me that we are past racism.

How many people in the justice system “recused” themselves, walking away from their responsibility?

We should not need video to bring change.

This moment in our journey of learning about the contrast between life for us (my white family) and life for our African American neighbors brings into view the evil of racism and white supremacy, a lack of justice in the system, inequality, and the need for change.

We have learned a little about the thoughts and feelings of our African American neighbors. Over the past few days, my wife and I have cried together and prayed.

May God bring justice to those who deny it.

May we take courage and bring change in ourselves, our neighborhoods, our systems, and our nations.
