I’m not demeaning anyone’s desire to be with friends and family for Thanksgiving. I simply implore us to demonstrate wisdom and compassion this year so that we can ensure that more friends and family are alive and among us next year. Praying for the sick and grieving. 🙏🏾

My father’s point and central to his beliefs, teachings and activism (per his speeches/books) was this: We cannot condone racism, but must eradicate it as one of the pervasive, systemic, overt and destructive Triple Evils, with militarism and poverty being the other two.
