How does one look at today and not conclude that America hates Black people?
Racists shoot us, they walk away free.
Racists are video taped killing us, and still they walk away free.
We talk right, we walk right, we dress right, we earn an education, we hold down jobs, we contribute in numerous ways to this country, but still they kill us and we can’t even get a facsimile of justice.
Every single day this country is killing us. This country is killing our fathers, our mothers, our sisters, our brothers, our nieces, our children, our nephews, our cousins, our grandparents all because of the color of our skin.
America is essentially saying that if you have white skin you are entitled to justice. If you have white skin you are entitled to do anything negative you want in this country and get away with it. If you have white skin you are entitled to life and damn everyone else.
There is a sickness in this country. There is a horror in this country and Black people are being killed because of it.
I still continue to hope for better days but right now, I look at African-Americans around me with tears in my eyes.
I look at Black children around me with tears in my eyes because I’m not sure they may live to see tomorrow.
May God help us all.
