What Does Real Leadership Require

I think what I took most from this article was to continue fighting for what you believe even in the face of adversity. At least in my time the Black Lives Matter movement has been the most polarizing but successful. They mentioned a few others but they quickly phased out, i.e. Occupy Wall Street. White folks and those that don’t understand what it takes to be proximate to what ‘Black Lives’ go through on a daily basis will never understand. Like was mentioned in Overcoming Bias, I will never know what it is like to be black. This doesn’t mean that my empathy can go towards those who will never know what it is like to be able to drive down the street and not be pulled over because of the color of my skin…or wonder if that is why you got pulled over.
