...they fit the description."

As a Black woman growing up in a predominantly Black city I didn’t see the types of racism that I do in the predominantly white suburban towns. 


But to watch my son, at 12 years old, pulled with force from a restaurant, along with another Black friend, by two White police officers because they “fit the description”; it opened my eyes. Imagine my concerns every night as he left the house when we couldn’t be there to protect him. I have the same concerns for my mixed race daughter. I have to say a prayer every night that they aren’t in the wrong place at the wrong time.
