From Texas I love things and people.
Another unarmed black man was shot and killed today by St. Lois police.
An official video has been release to the public and it’s graphic and jarring to the soul.
I legitimately can’t believe what I’ve been watching these past few days/weeks and I’ve felt oh so helpless.
Lord keep me aware and…
To me, the simple fact that their (police) first instinct is to open fire, multiple rounds when these situations appear to be non-life threatening is out of control. They have a choice, granted its a split decision, its a choice to remove their weapon and not their taser.
I can not begin to see or feel what black’s in this country go through but I will say in my opinion it is complete bull shit. I know that racism is not something we can simply erase, but we can take steps in the right direction and putting and black man in a choke hold until he dies for selling cigars or shooting a black man 6 times because he stole cigarellos or shooting a black man multiple times for stealing soda are not. I repeat ARE NOT ways of fixing this injustice that occurs in this country.
I agree with Alex on this, sitting behind the white privilege fence is again NOT a way to fix the broken world we live in.
Ladies and Gentleman, the man that will be in history books. He was throwing the burning tear gas. Not to the cops but away from the children protesting. In his American Shirt and bag of chips. Check his twitter.
