Mr. Militant Negro reblogged this on The Militant Negro™ and commented:

It is never too late to make a personal commitment to being a more active ally in the movement for Black lives. A year ago this month, folks were fighting to take down the Confederate flag from the South Carolina state capitol, after the massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.

If you’re a White person on the sidelines, we need you in the fight. Please raise your voice, particularly today. Justin C. Cohen cropped-unnamed-21.png
