I hope those of you with private businesses that have African-American employees will respect their right to protest and give them the day off without any trouble. A paid day off, needless to say.

In the wake of the recent deaths of Keith Scott and Terence Crutcher, actor Isaiah Washington has called on all African-Americans to boycott work this Monday, Sept. 26 ― the day of the first presidential debate ― to show the world that black lives matter.

Washington sent out his call to action on Facebook last Tuesday, also urging black people to boycott school and shopping for 24 hours. He described it as “a grassroots movement for our people by our people.” “Our goal is to maintain the safety of our people, while significantly impacting America’s broken judicial system that is oppressing us by removing our labor, our bodies and our money from it ... for 24 hours,” he wrote.

on Tuesday

Imagine if every single African American in the United States that was really fed up with being angry, sad and disgusted, would pick ONE DAY to simply 'stay at home' from every single job, work site, sports arena and government office in the United States of America. I'm very sure that within 72 hours from Wall Street to the NFL...Black Lives Would Matter. September 26, 2016 is THE DAY. #ItsTime #CanWeDoIt? #ACallToAction #StayAtHomeSeptember262016#RIPTerenceCrutcher #HandsUpDontShoot #Missing24
