The statistics for African American youth are shocking, and disheartening. They are far more likely to be arrested than their white classmates. We've seen the video clips of them being mistreated, and even killed by law enforcement. They often are poor, and understandably feel the system is not on their side. So different than my upbringing. My heart breaks for these young boys and girls, who have the decks stacked against them from day one. Black lives absolutely matter, and we need to do more to insure their equal rights.
