Episode 13 - Pillow Talk With Bros is observing blackout Tuesday to combat racial discrimination and social injustice. I will use this time to reflect on the actions I need to take to support the black community. I implore you to do the same. Today's episode is 8 minutes and 46 seconds of silence. The amount of time Officer Chauvin had his knee on George Floyd's neck. I ask that you take the full 8:46 to reflect on what you can DO to help support our black community. I encourage you to read, and educate yourself. Below is a list of resources where you can start. #theshowmustbepaused #blacklivesmatter
