You've probably heard me talking on the podcast about the "what about Black lives in Chicago?" thing people like to bring up in response to BLM. I have said that conservatives in particular use this as a bludgeon, not a call to solutions. But frankly, both sides are exploiting a very real and heartbreaking situation for the residents of the South Side. And both sides tend to think the residents there don't care. They do. It isn't fair to say there is no one caring about Black lives lost in Chicago violence. The residents care quite a bit, we just don't get to see them caring. That's why I love this video of residents taking it straight to the privileged BLM protesters on their corner. But really they are shouting at all of us. How do we solve - actually solve - the issues in places like Chicago? Is there action at a federal level that can be taken, or is this really something that can only be left up to Chicago voters and residents? EDIT: Sorry, I didn't realize video links don't populate on here. The link will lead you to the video. https://twitter.com/stillgray/status/1293391032529219584?s=20

@KiraDavis saw your tweet about the foster care / adoption “business”. I will try to come back later and tell you my personal story with the foster care system. It’s a disaster.
