"Stop letting people come and “talk to” you all. Really the impulse should be “I should go listen to some young people. I want to see what some young people have to say to me."
-Melissa Harris Perry
It is time that we start LISTENING to you.
There will be NO:
-Lecturing you on how you wear your pants
-Lecturing you on how you should speak
-Lecturing you on the music you should listen to
-Lecturing you on who you are friends with
NONE OF THAT SHOULD DETERMINE HOW YOU ARE TREATED OR IF YOU ARE SHOWN RESPECT BY ANYONE...EVEN THE POLICE.
Every single day someone young and Black is either harassed, brutalized, or killed by police. EVERY DAY.
Followed through stores.
Pulled over for no reason.
Smacked around by cops.
We don't have the same freedoms as everyone else, we can't speak our minds or utilize our rights.
Assumed to be a certain kind of person because of how we dress, wear our hair, cars we drive, music we like.
We want to hear about your EXPERIENCES and CONCERNS.
We want to hear about your IDEAS and what you think is UNPRODUCTIVE/PRODUCTIVE.
If you are too old for this event then please drop your kids off with us for an hour....we don't mind. This is specifically for them.
"They say pull your pants up, go to church. These people were at church. It don't get more respectable than that. STILL murdered. Now what?"
