READ: Congressional Black Caucus chair’s letter to Trump

Dear President Trump:
I write today to express my utter disgust with your handling of race relations in America in general and, more specifically, your calculated, divisive response to nationwide demonstrations against police brutality and racial injustice by professional football players, owners, coaches, and countless other patriots. African Americans are just as patriotic as any other American. We have fought in every war from the American Revolution to Iraq and Afghanistan, only to come
home to a country that has yet to reconcile deep-seated issues of race, inequality,
and injustice.
