It’s time. It’s time to acknowledge that the conversations about the police that happen in black homes are often very different than they are in white ones. It’s time to acknowledge that this reality stems from the all too frequent unjust treatment black people suffer during interactions with the police and how the police perceive black people. It’s time to engage in a positive national discussion about race and equal treatment under the law, about respect and fairness.
It’s time to change the conversation. It’s time to talk about the talk.
