If you are not a black America and you don’t get #ferguson

if you are not black and dont get #Ferguson
for all of you, not black Americans, who don’t understand #ferguson #mikeBrown
My kids deserve to feel as safe in America as your kids.
I deserve to feel as Safe in America as you do.
I should be required to prove that I am deserving of respect and safety as much as you do… NOTHING, NADA, Zilch, zero Zed, Bumpkins
if you don’t get this simple fact, intellectually and emotionally.
if you cant apply the same standards to me and mine that you apply to you and yours
if you cant stand in solidarity with me, knowing that if they come for me today, who will stand with you when they come for you tomorrow,
then you are a part of the racist, privileged problem and not the solution
