In a recent red carpet interview Kelly Rowland expressed her concerns. She opened up by saying, “I cannot tell you my prayers at night. When I pray at night, it’s starting to become a lot of tears.” Rowland continued, “It’s not just my son I pray for. I pray for our young Black boys as a whole.”
Rowland recently told ESSENCE magazine that the recent wave of terror against Blacks makes young Black men fear their lives. “It makes them [young Black men] fearful for their destiny, it makes them fearful for the decisions that they make.
