Black Lives Mean Nothing to Y’all.
Black Lives mean nothing to white people and I’m sick of it. A teenager in Broward County gets wrecked by police officers, all because he picked up a phone. Some will say it’s probably a back story on the situation, and we shouldn’t rush to judge.
We can sit up and make excuses for the why? At this point my feelings are, the “why” has been discussed ad nauseam.
How much more discussion needs to take place before we can readily admit that some police officers are ill-equipped to police Black and Latinx communities?
Race as a Pretext.
It seems as if its a back story on every single issue that highlights race in the United States. The truth is Black lives have never mattered much in our country. As you walk yourselves through the progressive history of our country, minorities have always faced extermination in the sense that their lives haven’t mattered to white folks.
Change starts with a conversation. But when communications are exhausted what’s the next step. If the next step is more conversations that’s fine, make sure you are having these conversations with your kids because these types of talks could be a matter of life and death.
