George Floyd

Dear Son,

We taught you to be racist. We were wrong. Yesterday, four police officers murdered George Floyd. You are responsible for this to some degree. Racists have become more vocal and more active because they know you are racist. Racists try to feel good or superior by thinking people of color are less than they are. This is not WWJD, not Christian and not true. It is simply wrong. You must clearly speak out against racism frequently and particularly when such an event happens. You must contact the Floyd family and take a personal interest in making sure that justice is done. You will only be deeply and truly happy if you value all life. If you look deep into your soul, you will realize that all life is precious and all people are equal and equally valuable.

I love you
