As president and CEO of Aubrey R. Taylor Communications, and publisher of Houston Business Connections Magazine, I applaud Sean “Diddy” Combs for declaring that He’s going to do what it takes to be part of the solution we desperately need in America. I keep stressing that we must become active participants in the process of electing people into office who love God and have a heart for us. And I believe, that real lasting change will only come via economic, political, social, and community organization and mobilization. Marching and protesting before the news cameras will only get us so far in this nation. These demonstrations must be married to proactive (rather than reactive) measures that will foster the lasting change we seek.

A short time after the grand jury’s decision to not indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo for the chokehold he placed on Eric Garner, the following declaration was made by Sean “Diddy” Combs via his Instagram account:

#WATCH .......I can't take it anymore! It's Enough, and enough is enough! Honestly my emotions are all over the place. We as artists, myself included, all have to step up and be better leaders in our communities. It's a hard burden to bear, but we have been chosen whether we like it or not. We need to do whatever we can in a POSITIVE way, to help unite people of all colors in this injustice! In order to be successful, it is very important that we have a well ORGANIZED, STRATEGIC plan. This is super important in order for us to make change!! REAL organization, REAL strategy and a TRUE commitment to not forget and move on like we usually do when the news stops reporting. This has to stop and we as a people are the only ones that can stop it. I truly do not have the right to preach, but I do have the right to speak. #EricGarner #MikeBrown #UNITE
