After a successful 3 years as a patrol officer, Keith earned a position into the Executive Protection Unit for the Mayor of the City of Detroit, then Kwame Kilpatrick – which, for Keith, was an accomplishment that turned out to be bittersweet.
After the fallout from the Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick scandal that rocked the nation and unsettled many young people of color that thought they had made some progress in the world – the scandal and certain other political realities, illuminated for Keith, a still existent system of racism and oppression, still a major problem in many non-white American communities.
