Mothers of black sons pray differently
 
FROM THE ARTIST:
 
When a racially biased officer sees my son driving down the street, that officer does not see my son’s giving heart. That officer does see his education. That officer does not see his sense of humor. That officer sees something different. Something that does not allow him/her to be objective. It does not allow him/her to be compassionate. It does not allow him/her to give my son a fair chance. So, my son needs to have a different attitude when dealing with officers – officers that have authority, officers that have guns, officers that have judged my son before they even talk with him. Mothers of black sons pray differently.
