Watching this opened my eyes so much that I was on tears. The truth hurts. I see this amongst my African-American people. I see this in my house with my son. Because of the information shared here. I know now I need to handle my son differently. I can no longer to at my fellow African-American brothers and sisters in a negative way. Though I knew this was the issue. I had now Idea that my thinking of some of my own pepole is a direct result of this. Powerful beyond measures are these words. Thank you so much. My life will forever be changed
