I love this new version of The Wonder Years because it is telling a story that needs to be told to White Americans who think only their lives matter. The ending broke my heart all four times I watched it with different family members. Tears flow every time I remember the death of Dr. King, whose Dream of creating a Beloved Community has never come to fruition, because White Supremacy has always stood in the way. I hope this series stays on the air until inclusion of Black people becomes the norm instead of the rare exception. Until agape love (brotherly/sisterly) love--- becomes the way we treat one another regardless of our skin color. Until White Supremacy and Systemic Racism is finally dismantled across our nation , never to rear its ugly, hateful head again. Until Black Lives Matter--- because then, and only then will All Lives Matter.
