Millions of Americans are outraged over the latest police shooting involving 40-year-old Terence Crutcher, and of those outraged includes actor Isaiah Washington. The former Grey’s Anatomy actor took to Facebook Tuesday (Sept. 20) to sound off on what he thinks African-Americans in this country can do to ensure their voices are heard.
“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…” Washington suggests.
The famed actor suggests African-Americans use their economic power to cripple major organizations in hopes to bring attention to the issues that most impact communities effected by police brutality. Unfortunately, news of Crutcher’s brutal killing came on the same day it was reported no charges would be filed against officers in the Korryn Gaines case.
Think Washington’s solution could work?
