My heart is heavy as I type this. I saw in the news tonight that another young black man had been shot by police. The expected words from those on both sides of the incident--Twitter blowing up--the Twitterverse seems to always know about the news even before the news channels do--LOL.

Tonight I have tried to put myself in the shoes of those in the black community. I grew up, for the first eleven years of my life, in a predominately black neighborhood, I went to a school where white kids were the minority. I have seen for myself, in many places, that racism is alive and well. From Rochester, NY, where I was born, and lived until I was eleven, I moved to a small farming community in NY, with my grandmother, father, and my older sister April. April was Mulatto. I saw a lot of what she experienced, she had friends, but she never seemed to truly be accepted by either group.

So I have seen the racism from both sides, from black people, and from white people.

That is a question. This is their fight! Where are they?
