Look at AOC - she chose to fight to lead - instead of being a bank robber


Black lives matter is responding to generations of differing treatment of blacks by criminal justice systems as compared to whites. The history of massive incarceration and the history of economic discrimination has interfered with their free will - with their ability to attain all of their potential.

As John Lewis lived and stated- peaceful protest is an essential aspect of accomplishing change. And change is necessary so that each impoverished black or brown person, and each impoverished white person has the same opportunity to accomplish greatness.

I had so many hands up along the way. Teachers that believed in me. Employers that worked with me. Some would say I am a wealthy man now - of course that is all so relative. In any case - yes I acted on free will - but I didn’t do a damned thing all by myself.
