This is a response to the driver who almost ran me over this weekend - and then dared to yell out her window, "This is America."

This lady is such an inspiration. Amy is keeping her little girl’s memory alive by continuing to connect pediatric cancer patients with Say It With Clay, the therapeutic clay studio that Brooke loved so much. Abbie Kasoff, the wonderful owner of Say It With Clay, named her youth scholarship fund after Brooke Mulford. And I was honored to make the announcement last night at #FacesofValue. What a social and amazing night. #arttherapy #powerofclay #art #therapy #inspiration #givingback #pediatriccancer
Rashon Nelson and Dante Robinson are telling their story... As I hear them tell it, I am even more struck by how this situation was handled and ended up escalating and resulting in their arrests... #ThisisAmerica
So sad to hear this. May Barbara Bush Rest In Peace. I always liked her warm smile.
Starbucks to close 8000 stores for several hours next month for bias training. #ThisisAmerica
Unconscious bias. Implicit bias. We all need to do the work and unpack these issues. And to the Starbucks manager who called the police: I really want to hear your story. If you see this, please contact me - even so we can chat by phone? Thanks.
Starbucks confirms the manager who called police is no longer an employee at the store. Meantime, protests continue and have prevented the store from opening to the public...#ThisisAmerica
Starbucks CEO now calling the men’s arrest a “reprehensible outcome.” He also says he wants to meet them to offer a face-to-face apology. Gray Hall and I will be discussing all of this during a Facebook Live conversation at 10:30am today. Please join us. #ThisisAmerica
From what we know about this incident, it makes me very, very sad. I just can’t imagine that any café manager would ever call the police on me for allegedly trespassing because I haven’t ordered anything and I’m hanging out. But if you’re black, this is a daily fear and sometimes reality? And can we talk about Starbucks’s apology? And what are your thoughts on Commissioner Ross’ statement? Please watch his entire video and then respond. And if you’re the manager who asked the men to leave and then called police, please, please reach out to me. I’d really like to talk to you and get your side of this story. Thank you. #ThisisAmerica
