Not A Leader

It's so clear what needs to be done.  We need a president to come out and say simply that "black lives matter."  Just say those three words.  But he won't and he can't . He can't because it's more important to him to mollify the small group of followers who validate his insanity.  But it's more than just Trump.  The system has to change.  I'll do whatever I can do to help, because that's what leaders do.  But he can't do anything to put us on a positive path, because he's not a leader.
