This past weekend people marching in support of Freddie Gray tried to shut down the city. In fact during the Red Sox vs. Orioles game on Saturday night, a message was displayed telling fans to stay in the park at the end of the game as it was deemed by the mayor to be unsafe on the streets near the field.
It is long past due that we, as a nation, decide what type of America we wish to be. While these new "race-wars" continue to rage, we have elected officials battling over whether or not climate change is real (it is... get over it), we have one political party consumed with denying gays the right to marry and another too busy pointing the fingers across the aisle rather than recognizing their own errors and shortcomings.
While people die on our streets, our elected officials cannot get out of their own way to make actual change.
What would you do to effect real change?
