This beautiful, incredible child represents so many black children that are growing up knowing they live in a society that devalues their lives and the lives of their loved ones. This is not something that is taught, they feel it because they live it. No media propaganda, false narrative, or skewed statistics can diminish or discredit that reality. These childhood experiences at such a tender age will leave a heaviness on her heart that will stifle her innocence, prematurely accelerate her maturity, have a strong affect on her self-image and how she values her self-worth, and play a major role in shaping the adult she’ll become. Just another reminder that must continue to fight – if not to save for ourselves, to save our children.

Once again, a white man trying to dictate the narrative of how black Americans should view the history of slavery in America. Bill O’Reilly could not stomach the fact that Michele Obama acknowledged that the white house was built off of slavery, so he decided to come up with a watered down version of the slave experience by saying that black slaves were treated good, fed well, and there was others that helped build the white house too. Truth – its extremely disrespectful and inconsiderate to black people for Bill O’Reilly to ever use the words “treated good” when speaking in reference to slavery in America. O’Reilly personifies the reason why we can’t continue to only allow white america to tell us our history because they will alter it the best they can to benefit them.
There is literally no more cooperating that could have been done. He was laying down with hands up and talking to the police to let them know there is no weapon and he still gets shot? On top of that, he was put into hand cuffs before police examined the wounds to assess what level of medical attention was needed. Black men are truly an endangered species in America.
I notice a lot a white Americans are upset that black Americans are speaking out against injustice and inequality in America. My advice to those white people is to help us fight for equality to change the inequities. If it doesn’t exist then white America won’t have to hear us talk about it anymore.

To have the presence of mind in recalling and articulating the detailed account of what was witnessed and experienced firsthand and sound judgement to live stream the aftermath of the incident is one of the realist examples of putting on for the unjust treatment of black people in America.
It’s sad enough that his family lost someone that they love but what’s making it even worse is that she is having to defend his character when it’s irrelevant to him being murdered by these police officers. This is a case that could have been easily deescalated by having a conversation before tackling and restraining him. He was not given an opportunity to even inquiry about why he was being approach.
