Free Us From the Chains (Once and For All)

Councilman Curren Price's op-ed piece was featured in the Los Angeles Sentinel discussing social injustice and systematic racism experienced in America. See below for an excerpt.

By Councilmember Curren D. Price, Jr.

We have seen the face of racism, we have had to look deep into its soulless eyes and empty hearts for over 400 years. It rears its ugly head in cycles, recently in the cold-blooded murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.

After living on this earth for six decades, the only thing that changes are the names and ages of the victims who succumb to acts of violence whether at the hands of police, vigilantes or simply living while being Black.

In the past it had been easier for the world to look the other way or brush these situations under the rug. But in the age of social media, where videos can go viral instantaneously and cyberactivism connects the masses to the truth, society is no longer desensitized to these heinous acts and anything short of JUSTICE, human dignity and concrete changes can not be tolerated any longer.
