NEW YORK CITY, JULY 9, 2016: A woman holds a banner during a protest in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. ***** “I simply ask you this: Recognize that just because ‘you’ do not feel the pain, the anguish, of another, does not mean it does not exist. To ignore their struggles — ‘our’ struggles — does not make them disappear. It simply leaves you blind and the American family very vulnerable. Some search so hard to explain away injustice that they are slowly wiping away who we are as a nation. But we must come together to fulfill what we all know is possible here in America: Peace, love, and understanding, fairness.” – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC)
