All this week the news media has covered the New York terror attack. This guy blew up a bomb and placed several bombs around the city and in another state. Further. He got into a gun battle with the police, wounding four policemen. Now, here’s the thing he lived. During the same period of time, there have been two unarmed black men were shot by the police and one man had his hand high in the air. I find it interesting that lethal force was used in a matter of minutes.
The police do as they do and use the same script claiming they were afraid for their lives. Then they find a few black people to ask for nonviolence and rely on their faith, and wait for all the facts. How can that be when the initial statement in often untrue? But of course, the next step is to blame the victim and the community. Let me add that usually; they somehow find drugs or some contraband. We know they will place weapons and contraband on people!
Hillary Clinton has come out with a strong statement saying “she will talk to white people and that these killing are intolerable.” It is good on her part; however, white people know the situation because they find away, after paid desk duty, the police get off of their crime. I for one say “stop talking about how much we are all Americans.” Black people are only Americans when they want black people to fight a war or to be used for the purpose of profit.
However, white folk always remind black people they have work to do; allow they time to give the police more training and be peaceful. I will say THESE KILLINGS ARE A DAMN SHAME!
White folk know this is not right, and they also know police lie. Maybe it’s time for black people to boycott; as it seems that is all they understand. I think it’s time that we realize and accept that black people are not Americans and the same creed America stood for still exists. In fact, the Constitution reminds us that the black people are not fully human. For those who don’t understand what Colin Kaepernick and others are protesting – this it! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
