Simply because an individual is white doesn't mean they don't have compassion or understanding for issues affecting black people, according to "The View" co-host Candace Cameron Bure.
That's the message actress and TV personality Candace Cameron Bure made clear this week on "The View" after panelist Sunny Hostin asserted that because Bure's two sons, Lev, 16, and Maksim, 14, are white, Bure didn't have to worry about their safety when it came to their treatment by police.

Jamal Bryant, pastor and founder of Empowerment Temple AME Church in Baltimore, Maryland, called out church leaders for their absence from the Black Lives Matter movement Monday, charging that it's the first civil rights movement in America that isn't being led by the Church.
"We cannot diminish or presume that this is a colorblind society. It is not," said Bryant. "Race is a real issue that has to be dealt with and discussed as we move forward. But the thing that I really relish in this dialogue is historians long after us will footnote that this [Black Lives Matter] is the very first movement of civil rights in America not led by the Church.
