He does I just can't remember them exactly.

But there is a great quote from the actor, Mehcad about his character that could work:

"Became a homicide detective to make sure that innocent Black men didn’t end up in prison on his watch." -MB

^^ There is an episode that is pivotal because two white cops try to arrest him and don't give him the chance to show is badge or anything. So it was racially motivated, and was a bit jarring because they said he 'looked like a suspect', like...

Sounds like a good episode. It is good that shows are highlighting the racial biases that exist in the police force

It was sad to see as well because the cops who eventually apologized acted like he was in the wrong for being upset about it.

Which is also good to show. There's so much of that sort of emotion out there. I saw on FB today people getting upset over 'National Sorry Day' here because they didn't do anything to the Indigenous people here so don't need to say sorry & don't see why we need to keep having that day or bringing it up. They want people to move on. But they're failing to see that it is bigger than that. There is still so many injustices around the world, presumptions, & misunderstandings. Those attitudes are as much a part of the problem as the cops who presume all blacks are guilty until proven otherwise, or the cops not seeing the problem with that. We need to be shown these things on TV to hopefully get through to people & open their eyes to what is happening in the world. Unfortunately no words or TV show can change some minds, but for some seeing it will.

It's not about 'moving on' or 'getting over it' either, it's recognizing that in the past, they were wronged and it's important to remember that acknowledge and understand their POV.

Exactly! People just see what they want to see though, or don't see the real meaning behind things. Or the bigger picture & what their words & actions mean

So sad but true. But then again a lot of that is the ignorance they have about it. Sometimes I feel like it would be better if people could INFORM rather than SHAME. But the latter seems to be the go to mostly. Especially on social media.

I think for some they want to leave education for others to do, or for that individual to look up themselves. Which doesn't always help. Yes we shouldn't have to educate others so they can respect us, but sometimes we need to give people information even if it is just to get them started on that path. It also can help ensure that they get the correct information & information which helps you as an individual since everyone has their own personal experiences. People can also automatically want to put up sides & turn to a fight instead of talking things out & seeing if an understanding can be made

Exactly. It's so easy to chastise someone for not knowing something, and while they would be capable of a google search, it's also a way to reach out and say, "Hey, here's some information about why this is important", etc.

^^ That's a huge issue too, the misinformation that gets passed on.

Gents… Turn the volume up on your soul and you’ll hear it. We are meant to be the divine balance of masculine and feminine. And until we activate that part of ourselves we will always be out of balance and out of rhythm with our sisters, lovers, partners, mothers and daughters.

The gravity that flows through your body is rooted in the deepest sense of love. From that position your highest path is to being open to accepting every possible pathway the universe has to offer you. It won’t offer you any pathway that is not rooted in love if you are rooted in love. No matter if you can see through the maze or not. No matter if you can’t hear the entire composition of the orchestra yet. If you are rooted in love, your possibilities will reflect that.

That's amazing!

It must be something he really advocates, men embracing their feminine side. When he was on True Blood he was very much 'gentle' in personality. So I wonder if that is something he brought to that role or if it was already apart of it.
