In our current situation I cannot in good conscience avoid using this platform to speak out against police brutality against our black brothers and sisters.
I have seen enough to believe in and admit to the systemic racism inherent in the way laws are applied to minorities. I will not allow myself to be silent as a black man is murdered in cold blood by a police officer while other officers watch on.
I knew I wanted to talk about this. I reached out and asked Ben if he would be interested in a conversation. I wanted to talk to him and listen to him and give him a chance to use this platform to share his reality. This is a recording of our phone call.
