As I drove to work this morning, I listened to the news report of yet another black man shot and killed by police. Tears came instantly!! I began to pray for the men in my family and our brothas! It’s heartbreaking to hear that even when brothas are cooperating, they still get shot down like dogs in the street! Families are being torn apart and JUSTICE is no where to be found. How can anybody move on when it seems like all the injustice is against those of your own race. It pisses me off to sit around and watch people like George Zimmerman, Jeronimo Yanez, and Darren Wilson continue to walk free after taking YOUNG BLACK MEN from their families. I’m raising young men and it’s hard not to worry. Terence Crutcher had 4 children. I can’t imagine what that feels like to thier mother! How do you explain this to your children. I tell my sons to cooperate and do what the police tell them to avoid any issues. What should I tell them now?? People wonder why songs like “F*** The POLICE” exists and it’s for times like these. I’m not saying all police are bad but I have to ask, “HOW CAN THIS KEEP HAPPENING?” and no one stops this! I have absolutely no faith in the justice system and I don’t know if I ever will! I have a right to be mad, it could be my husband, my father, or one of my kids next!! I’m outraged and simply disgusted that in America this is what it has come to. Our ancestors fought for our freedom, they marched for our right to vote, they spoke out against injustice! In 2016, WHY ARE WE STILL FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM??
