The Middle Men will be disuccesing the injustice of being black in America. Over our past history and in recent news, we have seen several incidents where either african americans were sentenced to prison, murdered, or beaten. Racism continues to be an issue in our justice but authority figures continue to state that it does not. We have witnessed the Rodney King beating, the murder of Emmett Till, murder of Oscar Grant, and countless others. We have seen Michael Vick sentenced to 26 months in prison for dogfighting but have seen George Zimmerman still free to live in his home after the murder of Travon Martin. Is our justice system flawed? Of course!! Punishments do not fit the crimes, and punishments of crimes are swfit enough for the victims.
With being black in America, has society shaped us with the injustice of being black ? Compared to the days of the Jim Crow laws, has any thing changed within our society being black in America? Should we as black people starting joining organizations such as the Black Panther Party? Should we hold our gangs more responsible for their neighborhoods and convince them to turn their image around to go back to their original purpose? Why is it that we view white on black crime as unacceptable, but view black on black crime as entertainment via sites like worldstar hiphop? We also discuss the murders of Trayvon Martin, Rekia Boyd, and James Craig Anderson.
It's good to talk.
