were yeah so yeah what are you thinking man ma ma ma ma home is my friend as I sit and speak to you today is with a heavy heart and to be quite honest with you ninety percent of me is filled with anger and just to be one hundred to watch that man be executed like that on camera and have seen many of the black man executed candor to land okay Neil garner when you hear about Trayvon Martin when you hear about Sandra bland and nothing comes from these things I want people to understand I'm not promoting violence or condoning violence against anybody or any person but there's only so much so so so much you can do there's only so much you can keep boiling a situation to liberals over and this George Floyd is a boilover like there's a breaking point yeah the stuff that's going on in Chicago these young men and women are angry now I'm not talking about the people there are two types of people first of all let's explain it there are people that want to expose racism in the police force expose what happening to African American men and women out here on the streets and then there's people that want to explore I'm not talking about the people exploiting George Floyd death and just wanted it to the grocery store right the girl steals about those are not the people I'm talking about I'm not that talking about the people that are actually out here each and we can't get a fair answer anywhere we turn we try to do a peaceful thing you try to sit down and talk and it doesn't happen so for me to sit up here and not be honest with you all who are who are loving respect deluca workers nonsense I respect the hell out of everybody over there I can't honestly sit up here and tell you I'm happy with the state of affairs right and and and and quite frankly people nine color won't fully understand what we go through because you don't have to go to apply for it like I could go somewhere with Fred and be treated differently than if I go to the same spot without free right and that's a problem the nets yeah that's the first step and Leah Rogers is not with us and I I've I've been saying it all morning because I think it's so important because I've been asking for guidance to for people like you and and and and other friends of mine in the community you know what what do I say what's the right thing to see because I can never I could never understand what it's like to be you I can empathize I can hurt anything to want for change but I don't know what it's like to be useful so I don't know always what to say what the right thing is what to do except to be supportive and be a listener you know and I am not the one that's the best thing that's the first time being able to listen to a lot of people are not able to listen and they won in polls had a steal the handle on the situation that is just not happen today this is four hundred years of systemic oppression and how people are being treated as less than a third of a person this is in the constitution this is not anything I make it up this is not conjecture at one point in time I don't know if they amended it but in the constitution we were considered as a third of a person you understand what I'm saying so at the end of the day of Fred and you you know the starts with listening estos just sitting in the room and absorb and what's going on and there's been a huge you can you can grow we don't grow up the same way none of us did that's what all makes us unique people but when you say what what can you say to make it right there's really nothing you can say your actions have to speak right because we've heard to tell her we're going to do this with her we're going to do that and then you turn around and the guy stands over a black man like he's a big game on and then you wonder why some people are enraged NMS anyway when king background we will MalcolmX was zeroed in executed so you know it's just a tough time and all I would say is you know if you have friends be receptive shouldn't listen just sit in the room and absorb and soak up what's happening you you'll never feel the pain that they feel I mean it's a shame I have to talk to my daughters my nephews about how to survive a confrontation with the police it is it is that we want to do that we don't have to do that as parents you have to do that and you had to grow up that way and and it's so important I think is well for people that you know don't understand for all those of us that are not in the black community to check people in our lives yep that are saying things or doing things that they're they shouldn't be doing that the jokes that they tell that you know we have six people and tell them why that what they're doing is wrong and I don't think you know you're sitting at there's always that you know that racist uncle at thanksgiving this talking about all his races things you gotta check people and not just sit there and let people you know spread these views in these messages that are completely racist and wrong energy Everett if that doesn't happen then I don't want to come back to me saying we down for it because we know in this which you know not yeah yeah you
