Wichita Police, Black Lives Matter Hold a Cookout – The Good News [PHOTOS]
I seriously yelled, "YES YES YES" when I read this. THIS. This is what we need.
The Wichita Police Department and the local Black Lives Matter group held a community cookout on Sunday afternoon, called the First Steps Community Cookout. Ironically, it was held in place of a protest that was planned.
The Wichita Eagle said, "At one table, three men — a black man, a Hispanic man and a white man — sat down with burgers next to police Lt. Travis Rakestraw to share their ideas."
"It was the first time since 1992 that Jarvis Scott, the black man, said he'd sat down with a police officer, and the other two said it was their first time ever sitting down with an officer."
The even held a Q&A session between the unarmed police and the attendees. This seriously couldn't make me smile more.
