The final summer of the Tr*mp administration was a hellish landscape of corruption, incompetence, unbridled police brutality, and the largest public outcry from *white people* that I’ve seen in my life so far.
At one point I called business partner Tammy Soffer and she and her partner were at a Black Lives Matter March. Mind you, she’s immunocompromised almost if not 60, I’m not sure.
In all my years of working with her and knowing her, her passion has always been rescuing dogs. She found our Goodyear boy Buddy roaming the streets of Miami.
But when she told me where she was, and I heard the crowd chanting and then she FaceTimed me, moved to tears by the dedication and commitment of the youth-led march. She and her partner Larry marched until Larry’s blisters became unbearable.
She proclaimed to me, while swept up in the high, that she wanted to “dedicate her life to fighting white supremacy!”
That was my personal bellwether.
