There isn't one solution to overcome this sullied relationship between Black Americans and the USA government.

For Colored Girls Sick Of Mysogynoir

How many times have we compared Black men to white men when it comes to deescalating situations. Black men murdered simply for reaching for wallets, white men with guns typically live to be arrested.
