Op-Ed: Here's how we rebuild our communities

If you want to know what I think the solution is to the crisis in the Black community, it's this entire community response.

We must build a cradle to career set of supports for children, improve housing and health care, and ultimately help support and strengthen families and neighborhoods. President Obama used the Harlem Children's Zone as a model to create "Promise Neighborhoods." It is a comprehensive strategy to provide educational and social service supports to disadvantaged communities. If you want to bring hope back to our inner-cities, and push back against the despair and sense of abandonment, provide real community infrastructure plans and make meaningful investments in rebuilding our educational and social supports in Black America.

Park Police Tear Gas Peaceful Protesters To Clear Way For Trump Church Photo-Op'I was outraged that he felt that he had the license to do that, and that he would abuse our sacred symbols and our sacred space in that way,' Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde said of President Trump holding up a bible outside St. John's Church. I was deeply offended that the president caused a peaceful demonstration to be driven from a public park, just to use the church as a backdrop and the Holy Bible as a photo prop. It was extremely disrespectful and unnecessary. You didn't say shit when you had a mouthful last night. Yep. You are correct Trump's actions slighted your parish. Why would he not feel able to do those things? He has done pretty much anything else he wanted and no one has stopped him so it must be ok, right?
