“I’m here to have a conversation hopefully promote more conversation and with the end goal being that we take the time we are now in to constructively turn the page in history through some righteous and justifiable change,” he explained.

“You have to acknowledge there’s a problem so that you can take more ownership for the problem. You have to acknowledge implicit bias; you have to acknowledge that you’ll see a black man and for whatever reason, you would view them as more of a threat than the white man – probably because society told them to,” Emmanuel explained to Matthew.

Here are resources to help support the Black Lives Matter cause.
