Are you “more devoted to order than to justice?” More prone to call for civility than to commit to systemic change? More focused on crying for negative peace, which is the absence of tension and physical violence, than on cultivating true peace, which includes justice?

We are living far below our capacity to dwell together as a family in our #WorldHouse . We can facilitate a #revolution  of values. Be a part. Love. Be informed. Seek to be educated on issues that influence our ability to build a more peaceful, just, humane world.

I regret that #EricaGarner  and #EricGarner  are not alive. Let’s continue to work toward justice, which is “love and power correcting everything that stands against love.” This nation must correct the biases and racism in its systems, including criminal justice/law enforcement.

Racism is not mere disagreement. It is a systemic, social and structural evil. We can’t eradicate it if we don’t expose it. We can’t have reconciliation without truth. And there is no true peace without justice. #LoveWell

“HOWEVER [emphasis mine], for the good of America, it is necessary to refute the idea that the dominant ideology in our country even today is freedom and equality while racism is just an occasional departure from the norm on the part of a few bigoted extremists.” #MLK

“If you, as a White person, would like to be treated the way Black people are in this society, stand."

Many who tweeted about my father today would have hated him 50 years ago. He was for the eradication of poverty and caring for poor people. No human was an alien to him because he believed this is a World House. And he asserted that inequality in healthcare is most inhumane. #MLK

Emmett Till would be 78 today. His mother, Mamie Till-Mobley, ensured that the world saw how gruesomely her 14 year-old child was murdered. Racism isn’t disagreement. Families grieve. Communities mourn. Dreams wither. Humanity suffers. People perish. Remember Emmett Till.

Dear boys and men: You shouldn’t have to correlate girls and women with your daughters, wives and mothers in order to care for and about them. Instead of “I have daughters, so this matters to me,” try: Girls and women matter, no matter what.
