I am gently calling all of my brothers and sisters (blue, black, and everything in between), to come together and have a respectful, open, and honest conversation about this particular fact in the slide below regarding Chicago's budget. I invite you to share WHY you feel the way you do, IN YOUR OWN WORDS, not through reposted content on Facebook.
Conclusion: Let's come together, understanding that no two people have the same lens, experiences, advantages, and challenges. Our differences are our strength, and let's use our voices to communicate ideas, not rhetoric. Forget about defunding anything. Take a look at the info in this slide, and share what you think a shifting of funds would produce.
