What would it be like to know that when you send your child out the door, he might be one of two people killed by the police today, 751 in a year? What if you could watch your child, grown tall, slowed-murdered? Dying he called out for you, “Mama” with the police looking directly into the camera. What if 99 percent of those police will never face charges? That is not freedom but slavery by a different name.

Donald Trump has unleashed those with white nationalist tendencies and powerful guns to hunt down Black people as they peacefully protest. What if racists set fire to a building not the protesters? Regardless, what is a building compared to the God-given spark of life in a child, any child? President Barack Obama cheers one of the antidotes.

The Bucks NBA team was first to boycott their final basketball games. Coach Doc Rivers and the owner stood behind them as other top teams, Black and White, linked arms and said “No more!”

Obama said:

‘I commend the players on the @Bucks for standing up for what they believe in, coaches like @DocRivers, and the @NBA and @WNBA for setting an example. It’s going to take all our institutions to stand up for our values. pic.twitter.com/rUGETgAt7P
