“The fact is I could have been George Floyd. I could have been Ahmaud Arbery. I could have been Christian Cooper.” VERY powerful, brave and important piece by ⁦@JeremyButler01⁩, CEO of @IAVA. He is a leader America needs to hear now. #BlackOutTuesday…
“It’s about being black while driving, black while shopping, black while doing anything. And yet, I am proud to wear the Navy uniform. As a veteran of the Iraq love of this country and my desire to serve it both in and out of uniform has not changed.” -@JeremyButler01
“But love of country and patriotism don’t mean unconditional loyalty. Dedication to service does not mean blind servitude. It means acknowledging that we live in a deeply flawed country while also working hard to make it better.” -@JeremyButler01
“You’ll never hear me say that America is the greatest country on earth. Not just because I think the phrase is meaningless hyperbole but because when you say that, you’re giving America a pass. Not only on its historical failings but on its current ones as well.”-@JeremyButler01
“But I do say that I love America. And because I do, I call on Americans to use these tragic times to recognize America for what it is: a flawed country, suffering from its own original sin, founded on the highest ideals of freedom and liberty but which we have not yet achieved.”
