Opinion, Government, Most Endangered Species
Let’s face it: Black men and boys are one of our nation’s most endangered species and always have been. Each time I look at America’s government pinnacles — the Capitol, the White House, and National Mall monuments — I am reminded of the Black men whose hands built those magnificent structures and the difficult conditions under which they worked: their bodies used as human ladders; their comrades lost and buried below. A nation built by Black men and boys should protect Black men and boys.
