We Have to Root Out Systemic Racism

From my friend and colleague, Rev. Laura Guy, in response to the death of George Floyd:

“I planted a garden this year. And I have to go out every damn day and pull the weeds because they are determined to take over and kill off my flowers. America, we have to root out systemic racism every damn day because it’s killing us.”

Systemic racism is killing us, it’s killing some of us quickly and some of us slowly, but it’s killing all of us.
