Celebrities should put money where their mouths are

In response to the social issues of racism and Black Lives Matter, I’m disappointed I have to address this ignorant human shortfall in the year 2020. I realize this evil trait has a long history and runs very deep. But is must be stamped out completely.

I would like to thank the celebrities and the sports stars for speaking out and addressing this social injustice. Cancelling scheduled events is certainly one way of showing support.

However another way that would have more effect would be your millionaire types to set up a trust fund for the families of the victims.

Also a trust fund set up to cover sensitivity training and race relations for your police departments, who unfortunately can’t seem to manage it.

Let’s all get along people, it shouldn’t be that difficult!
