It's sad to see so many African-Americans in despair over the recent police shootings. And for the most part, there are many who are peacefully protesting; however, there are agitators who infiltrate as they did in Ferguson and other places and their destruction changes the entire narrative.
Instead of us talking about the real issues, we become distracted by criminals who only take away from the pain felt by so many living in these communities.
Regardless of your views on these issues, we all have a right to peacefully protest.
There is something happening in America and whatever it is, it's not bringing us together. We must remove the ugliness of hate from the American spirit and come together.
