  • (5/5)
    Clear example that our fear of the system of white supremacy racism still controls how we express the behavior of members of the white race to our offspring.
  • (5/5)
    The rational, compassionate, and expressly erudite debate/conversation that Mr. Coates delivered was a necessary and important ‘truth speak’ for today’s listeners in this country (especially) and those abroad. It serves to satiate a hunger for a solution (meal) to those who are able to understand and recognize that our current condition isn’t palatable for a healthy nation. People deserve, want, and need to seek the better in themselves during these violent and morally famished times, so that these carnivorous assails on humanity doesn’t continue and doesn’t destroy us for lack of a proper balance between decency and righteousness to nurture a healthy prosperous people. Thank Sir for the courage to say do and tenacity to reiterate and insist on it. Bravo.
