#GeorgeFloyd should be alive. Instead, he was killed as he begged police for his life.

The impunity of police violence is a systemic problem we must face to save lives.

Police brutality is now a leading cause of death for young Black men in the US. The status quo is killing us.

With #AmyCooper trending, this is a good time to remind folks that there is a school of thought that there is no such thing as "not racist". One is either racist or anti-racist. To learn more about AR, check out @DrIbram 's work on the subject.

This #MemorialDay, we’re being asked to engage in sacrifices to protect each other’s lives. But while the parades may be canceled, let’s remember the courage required of those brave souls who have given the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our freedoms. Let’s honor them today.

I worked closely with Raye Montague's son on the story of how his mom engineered her way out of the Jim Crow South to become the first to design a Naval ship by computer. The book is now available for Kindle preorders, with hardcover soon to follow!
