Am I Black or White???

Greetings Family!!
So by now we have all read about Rachel Dolezal, the white woman (just stating a fact) who identifies herself as African American.  There are so many opinions about this situation in the many discussions I have had.
How dare she portray herself as something she is not?
She did a great job for the cause, so why does her race matter?
She is her identity.
Is that her hair???
Her untruth speaks to her character
Black people have “passed” so why is this different
Why did her parents reveal her true identity
Why are we talking this?
I can go on and on and in the end race matters……still.
Peace Family

My skin color is not a crime.

We have all seen the video by now, of a white cop using  force to hold down a 14 year old Black girl in a bikini at a pool party and pulling out his gun against two Black boys who came over to help the girl. Why do some people think it's ok to talk, touch or rule over people of a different color any way they want? I watched the footage of the officer forcing this girl down, and sitting on top of her as she cried out for her mother. That could have been my child, that could have been me.
Why was the story of  two white women (who many confirmed were making racial comments and attacking the teens) believed  by the police instead of the officers coming in and asking questions?

Where is the justice that is promised us as all Americans? Of course not everyone is this way. I have lots of family members on the police force. How hard it must be for them to see these stories and not react.  What can we do? We must protest, we must vote, we must stand united together for the greater good.

Peace & Blessings,
