The last two weeks have been unsettling to the psyche of America. It has been devastating to the hearts and minds of Black America.
Atty. Bob McCulloch took his time in Ferguson to create enough doubt in the minds of his grand jury, to not only squash any chance of an indictment, but also decimate the character of Mike Brown in the court of public opinion. Just like the legal team in FL did Trayvon Martin, they used traces of THC, "menacing" pictures and size to place these young me squarely in the box of America's fears.
With Eric Garner things should have been different. Yes, he was 6'5" and 350 lbs, but he was also unarmed, backed against a wall and surrounded by armed policeman. All while several cell phone cameras were rolling. Surely, we would at least see this case go to trial. C'mon, even after Eric Garner was subdued, and gasping for his last breaths, that would warrant Officer Daniel Pantaleo seeing the inside of a courtroom with a defense attorney having the ability to cross examine him. Right?
No not in todays United States of America. Not in an country where a black man with a big microphone like Charles Barkley could see these incidents, as questionable, while people like Bill O'Reilly sees it the way many black people do.
These incidents have many of us in a state of utter disbelief that has surpassed anger. What do we do next? We'll discuss this on this episode. Our guest will be Dr. JeffriAnne Wilder.
