03 Jun Rock theBoat
There comes a time when prayers and meditation just aren’t enough. There comes a time when humor needs to be temporarily sidelined. There comes a time when silence and peace are just too quiet.
I come to you today to stand squarely on the side of the protestors who have taken to the streets across America over the past week to protest the murder of George Floyd, police brutality, and the systemic racism that plagues this nation.
I come to you today to acknowledge that racism is real. Racism is evil.
I come to you today to say out loud, Black Lives Matter.
(If you take offense to my support of Black Lives Matter, I lovingly remind you that that’s your ego making this all about you – and it’s not about you. This is about taking a stand for change. This is about standing in solidarity with our fellow humans.)
One of the Chapters in My Scandalous Little Rule Book is entitled ‘Rock the Boat’ and I’m reading it to you in today’s Jacquie Straight Up video. The reason will be obvious to you.
