  • 👂🏽🧠👂🏽 We’re on the verge of revolutionary transformation and it takes shape with information, innovation, compassion, action and guts. If we’re growing, we’re adapting. We’re utilizing the range of conversation starters at our disposal and making measurable change with the momentum. Challenging each other to consider experiences other than their own.
Whether delivered via academia or entertainment; pop culture or indie; whether comfortable and terrifying, narrative change moves culture. Seeing people do it helps and that momentum can begin with a simple conversation.
In the last year or two I've noticed @proctergamble roll out narrative after narrative addressing aspects of Black life and the unnecessary, unacknowledged challenges bias brings. #TheLook, #TheTalk, #TheChoice and #RedefineBlack explore some interesting imagery around race and bias while exposing these shadow experiences to the masses, in some cases, for the first time. So when they completed their latest social experiment and asked if I'd take a look and share a few thoughts, I said sure. 
Starting today, you can watch alongside me and @freddie and see what it makes you feel and think. 

It’s time for Americans to embrace the realities around us and the roles we play. Bias is a real one, in all of us. #TalkAboutBias.

  • ⚖️ Reduce and reroute police funding away from militarized systems that disproportionately and compulsively deliver violence and trauma without consequence, and put some of that TOWARD actual helpful and healing services that save major money and lives. All while making us all safer and healthier contributors to our households, communities and country. #defundthepolice is coming.

  • As we begin to wean ourselves off the teat of volatile and violent policing, we seek and carve alternatives.
Thanks @elainewelteroth for pulling together the NY list and inspiring this one from @crystalmeers.

  • FOR SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE, POLITICIANS HAVE REDUCED THE POLLING PLACES DOWN TO 1. DURING A PANDEMIC. BECAUSE IT’S HOME TO HALF OF THE STATE’S BLACK VOTERS AND THEY WANT US POWERLESS. 
ONE POLLING PLACE. 1. ☝🏽.
READ THESE SLIDES AND ACCEPT THE FACT THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAS LONG WAGED A WAR AGAINST YOU AND YOUR POLITICAL VOICE. IF YOU DON’T VOTE, THEY WIN. FIGHT BACK. 
They’re should be a federal minimum of polling places per capita.
