There was an incident that caught Matt’s attention in January. Matt has always been fighting for the lives of black people.
I just wanted to say that all too often we see dangerous stereotypes and negative portrayals of black parents in the media. And they have consequences when presented without context. https://t.co/658oxEKuxo
