Tulsa is a lesson most certainly about the ugliness of humanity but I agree with you towards the end of your speech. Hope. Hope is also running through humanity as well. I hope as you do for the realization of justice in the lives of people.

Develop a holistic approach which creates a situation of human flourishing. A holistic approach includes the religious, social, economic, and political aspects of the human experience.
Religious: answer what faith has to say to this human experience
Social: answer how society has a corporate responsibility to this human experience
Economic: answer the economic impact of doing something or nothing
Political: Answer how govt can restrict or create opportunity
We need to be informed, educated, address the issue not the people, conduct self-examination, work with love as the fuel, enter into discussion and negotiation, and firmly communicate God is on the side of justice.
A just society depends on the action of persuasion and relationship between persons. A society can produce what it believes to be “just” through force but it will not be moral.
We have a responsibility to one another, to be compassionate and creative, shaping a world in which we all have the opportunity to flourish as human beings.

Frederic Bastiat state, “In fact, if law were restricted to protecting all persons, all liberties, and all properties; if law were nothing more than the organized combination of the individual’s right to self defense; if law were the obstacle, the check, the punisher of all oppression and plunder—is it likely that we citizens would then argue much about the extent of the franchise?” Maybe, just maybe too many laws exists and in the case of Cube and how he was growing up as a young man, the overwhelming police presence, shaped his view of life.

A recent Pew Research Study conducted between March 1-7, 2021 was the match for this podcast. Also I recommend you read a book by the notable Carl Jung, "The Undiscovered Self" regarding the relationship between the Church and the State. Very insightful.
The every day people in the urban areas reflect ideas of freedom. The opportunities to determine individual courses of life, the ability to speak freely, and powerfully critique structures which inhibit that freedom. If you actually read the lyrics, you would be surprised to find themes which are more in line with the Founding Fathers than the tyranny and oppression of political ideologies which seek to control the social, economic, and political life of citizens.
Surely we can find elements of classical liberalism woven within the lyrics and over the beats of rap and hip-hop!

Our quote of the week comes from JS Mill and his book "On Liberty."
"The only way in which a human being can make some approach to knowing the whole of a subject, is by hearing what can be said about it by persons of every variety of opinion, and studying all modes in which it can be looked by every character of mind."
