Young, Gifted, and Black.... Jeramey D. Anderson
In the wake of many African American men being victims of police brutality or serving time in federal prisons. I thought it was important to shed insight on this brilliant young man. I am saluting Representative Jeramaey D. Anderson. Since it is the last day of Black History Month I wanted to shed light on a young man that changed the face of American politics.

Toni's Thoughts: I remember watching him on CNN and other news outlets I was so proud shedding tears of joy. There is an effort to destroy the Black man he is perceived to primitive and dangerous. I am glad to see this young man destroy the negative archetype. I am proud of you. Do well.
