Trevor Noah said it best; life is like dominos. One-piece knocks down another piece that knocks down yet another. And although you realize that in life, you often forget that very real ideal. We’ve all experienced it, one thing goes wrong, and then another and then another, and we cry out, “if it ain’t one thing it’s another!” That’s precisely what America is dealing with right now. First, it was Coronavirus and the deaths associated with that. Then it was the lockdown, which lead to unemployment and the massive layoffs, that then impacted the economy, and then you get word of another death of an unarmed black man at the hands of two white men. Shortly after that, you’re told of a white woman threatening a black man, minding his own business, with the police, because he asked her to put her dog on a leash. And finally, you watch for eight minutes and forty-six seconds, while a white cop – really three white cops – places his knee on the man's neck while he begs for his life and tells the police “I Can’t Breathe” to let him up and not kill him, only to have the cop exert more pressure and do precisely that, kill him! The Social Contract, that America is intrinsically supposed to abide by, only applies to white America, because that contract for Black America, has been broken! Hear how Kimberly Jones expresses her view of the Contract in her own way. Parental Discretion Advised.
