When we start to believe again, law-enforcement will stop killing our black men
Every civil rights activist from that first one until 2020 have all said one thing: ‘Action!’ Without it we (Black Americans) are doomed to repeat history in a circular construct. Example: Police kill a Black man on the corner of 38th and Chicago in Minneapolis (MN) looks very different than the Black man killed in Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, London - or even more so, the continent of Africa. Protests irrupt, brick and mortar businesses are ransacked, some burned to the ground. Our neighborhoods burn too. Once an open grocery store is now scheduled for demolition in the near future. A new breed of activists arise, unknown, untested, naïve, no formal Machiavellian training, and let’s not forget arrogance. We have been stuck in this playground for more than 60-years watching history repeat itself; watching some get paid while others are played. It’s the nature of the beast inside a so-called colorblind society that sees Blackness as something that needs its own drinking fountain.
