We as a society often want easy, quick answers when there aren’t any to be had. There’s aren’t any in Baltimore. While the riots draw the headlines and dominate television news, the discussion of what has happened for decades that was ignited by a recent spark, what has to change on everyone’s part, what actions to take is not going to lead to simple, quick answers.

The Denver Nuggets’ Will Barton is trying to help start that conversation and slow things down amid the riots.

Good on Barton. His event seems to have brought people together in a positive way, a good first step on a long journey.

Barton is not the only NBA player with ties to Baltimore who has reached out, so has Carmelo Anthony.
