Running as social commentary: Take a Knee


Journalist Annette John-Hall of WHYY’s Newsworks talked to me about taking a knee at a race, last weekend. Here is her story.

Salient quote from another race participant: “You know, it doesn’t affect me, so I don’t feel any need to protest.” That’s my point: when unarmed African Americans are killed by white Police who rarely face consequences, we all need to speak up. We can’t talk about liberty and justice for all without speaking out against egregious acts of injustice.
