On The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Phaedra Parks took her two young boys to the capital this past week.

“During our visit we met with several members of Congress… Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL24) has a powerful initiative called The 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project; an in-school dropout prevention and mentoring program… President Obama recognized Rep. Wilson’s program during his…speech of “My Brother’s Keeper…”

As a mother of two boys, Phaedra feels a responsibility to bring about change.

“We must unite, not as blacks and whites but as human beings in order to effect the change that is necessary to create a world where all of our children are safe and have the opportunity to succeed. As Dr. King once said ‘injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’”

Phaedra notes that progress has been made.

“People are more aware of the need to recognize and honor the rights of groups that have historically been unjustifiably ostracized, including women and the LGBT community.”

But there’s still work to be done.

“Black boys and young black men still face unfair and prejudicial treatment that many naively believe was abolished years ago. I have spent time with the families of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, and Sandra Bland and many others who have experienced the cruel and meaningless loss of a child at the hands of unjustified fears and/or misunderstandings.”

I have to say, Phaedra’s cuties were very well behaved. More so than Kim’s older son. What’s your take?
