Two Ways to Kneel in America Today.

This may go down as one of the most symbolic pairing of pictures in American history.

Few representations could better capture the divided status of America today.

Some Americans believe the picture on the left is perfectly acceptable, while finding the picture on the right wrong and terrifying.

Other Americans believe the picture on the right perfectly acceptable, while the picture on the left is wrong and terrifying.

I think all of you know which category I am in.

And to anyone who finds a picture of a white police officer slowly and seemingly deliberately killing an unarmed black man on the streets of any American city ok (although you probably don’t care) I feel compelled to point out that I don’t accept your president, your America, or you. And I hold you personally responsible for helping create conditions where this type of thing can go unpunished and sometimes even be rewarded.

Shame on your president, shame on your country, and shame on you. Unfortunately is appears that both you and your president have no true concept of shame. Now I have no hope of your president ever changing, but I do hold out hope that you will one day come to understand why we cannot allow this type of thing to continue.
