Kendall Qualls on Tucker Carlson Tonight
I was featured on Tucker Carlson last night to discuss the recent turmoil in the Twin Cities. I emphasized the need to protect vulnerable families most at risk from the violence and destruction occurring after George Floyd’s tragic death.
As the child of a single mother during the turmoil of the late 1960s and early 1970s in Harlem, I know what it feels like to go to bed with police sirens and violence outside your apartment window. The one thing I needed, like all children, was safety and security.
Given the current turmoil, it is important that we distinguish between (1) legitimate peaceful protestors who are rightfully outraged and want justice for George Floyd and his family; (2) the most vulnerable members of the community caught up in the turmoil, namely single mothers, children, and the elderly; and (3) rioters and looters taking advantage of the situation for their own gain.
We all want justice for George Floyd. Honor his memory through peaceful demonstration.
