In this episode, Dr. Valdes addresses the challenges our nation faces today as a result of some police brutality and a sorely neglected community, finally erupting as a result of the many years of abuse. For Dr. Valdes, a person of color, he sees the problem is much more complicated. Dr. Valdes stresses that it is vital that we do not judge the many good police officers who leave their homes every day and risk not coming home so that they can protect the community they serve. This specific incident to Dr. Valdes it almost seems like the officer was possessed. Dr. Valdes believes that no matter how much of America we burn and destroy, it will never change other's perceptions against people of color; on the contrary, the looting and vandalism only affirm the belief for those who dislike people of color. The crux of the problem that needs addressing is criminal justice reform, here is where all the issues lie. In the year 2016, in Georgia of the 8760 people convicted of drug offenses, 22% were white, and 78% were people of color. This is where all the leaders who want to make a difference need to direct their energies to; it is in the ballot boxes and in Washington DC, where we need to stand and protest. Last, Lebron James is the model to follow, we who succeed can not abandon our communities we must reinvest in them. Sadly, the minute a person of color makes it the first thing they do is leave their town and move to the white suburbs where the people we criticize the most live.
