Why ‘When They See Us’ is a real-life horror film for Black America
I broke down at least 4 times during the movie on Netflix. At the age of 62, #INeverCry. I haven't felt that moved by a movie or story since my own fight against U.S. Customs - www.TheCathyHarrisStory.com. I believe it was the white men interrogating the boys. White men on my job, internal affairs agents, were forever calling me in a room and questioning me without union representation -- which was illegal.
When you see these types of movies and you yourself been "to hell and back again," it makes you remember what you want to forget. However, it also stirred up a #FighterSpirit inside of me...and just for a minute, I thought it would be a good idea to finish up a book on "Boycotting the Police" or the companies that support the police.
I decided not to finish the BOOK PROJECT a few months ago, even though it was 90% complete because black Millennials on facebook bullied me, 62, and the other male Baby Boomer, who is 72, that was working on the project with me.
I know some of the people who bullied us were not all black, however, those young black folks 'broke our spirit' and I told the other guy...no way I would do this and put up with this bullying from our own people.
The other Baby Boomer and I are #OldSchool and both of us had expertise in the criminal justice system and we both came from the #SchoolofHardKnocks. Both of us have a GREAT LOVE for black folks. We knew first-hand how to get things done, but we won't be passing on this expertise to the younger generation. #LostKnowledge, #FreedomFighters.
