God fearing, loving, honest, hard working

What do you feel is holding us back from reaching your ideal America?

People afraid that someone will have more than them and they feel for some reason they don’t deserve more, even if they have worked hard for what they have . Folks feel entitled, and are not being genuine

Is equality a core value in your life?
  • Yes
If yes to the question above, what action steps do you take or have you taken to ensure equality in the U.S. and why?

I treat other’s with love, and how i would like to be treated.

What barriers exist in your life to increasing your involvement?

Hate that be have is a barrier

What role do you think the government should play in race relations?

Honestly I’m not really sure what their role should be. But I do know that they should hold people accountable for their actions, including law enforcement. No one is better than the next and all laws should apply to everyone… We all bleed the same color…

When you hear black lives matter, what does that mean to you?

I think of a group of individuals from every race joining together to stand up for something that they believe in. African American are dying at a greater rank than any other race by the hands of law enforcement. I commend them for having the strength and courage to stand in the gap.

These things will destroy the human race: politics without principle, progress without compassion, wealth without work, learning without silence, religion without fearlessness and worship without awareness.

– Anthony de Mello
