Something is wrong in America when Michael Thompson, a Black man, who sold 3 pounds of weed in 1994, is still in prison in Michigan, a state where it is now legal, yet, Joseph Meili, a white man, who kidnapped & raped an 11-yr-old in Missouri, just got sentenced to probation.

Juneteenth isn’t just about celebrating the end of slavery in Texas. It’s a necessary reminder that 154 years later, Black Americans still feel the harsh reality that the fight for racial equality in our country is far from over. I’m in that fight all the way.
