There are too many wrongs in this show, but I won’t get into that.
I just think we have to be more careful and aware of our own power. Be more selective with the roles we choose to take on. Whether we want to or not we represent our race with every step we take and every word that stumbles out of our mouths.
I’m more concerned about our children and our people getting the wrong impression than the ignorance of other people. We can’t change that, but we can change us.
