100 Words -- Baltimore

Social injustice does not justify looting and burning. Looting and burning do not justify ignoring social injustice. Too many young people have no hope for meaningful work. Too many young people have been let down by an educational system that fails to educate. Too many young people are stereotyped as potential perps instead of as individuals with potential. Too many young people can’t get jobs because their youthful indiscretions are etched in digital stone. And way too many young people are raised by parents whose lives are controlled by their addictions. This is the life they must face every day.
