Bravo! This is an amazing, heartfelt, poignant, realistic, well written article. At one point while reading it I noticed my left hand up against my heart- even the coldest of hearts will be moved by the authenticity of Roland’s words.
He chaperones the reader through a-day-in-the-life of a Black Male while managing to leave no loop holes for racist interjection or misunderstanding, because….it is HIS lived experience and not up for editing or rewrites.
