The recent display of civil disobedience in every state of the union and beyond with proclamations that Black Lives Matter, has the potential to replace the country’s stain of injustice and inequality with a blueprint for a future free of institutionalized overt and covert racism. But, only if Allies work to become Advocates, and the present movement evolves to a time where Black people, along with all other people, regardless of any differences, are allowed to be fully included in the American way of life.
