I am saddened by what has happened...but unfortunately it is not the first time and it is won't be the last time.
This was a status update from one of my dear friends....and he speaks the truth:
"It's sad that a young boy had to lose his life to shed light on what it's really like to be an African American male. The stereotypes and racial profiling are destroying these young lives. We have to stand and give these boys and men a chance."...written by my friend T.M.
Here is another that blew me away..the sad part about it is I believe it:
"Just talked to a cop. He said regardless of what society thinks, a black man in a hoodie is up to no good or a possible threat. SMH"..written by my friend, T.M.
In disbelief....as I am currently watching "The Help"...anyway...
Here is another update from one of my friends...
"If you're a Black Man in Florida you should be vexed and on some straight Revolutionary ish regarding Trayvon Martin! Damn all the protesting, the talking, the rally's, and all the other ineffective bullshit! Doesn't matter who, but one of you needs to cause some slow-singing flowers-bringing for the savage beast who took Young Trayvon's life...then call some "officials" to come get his azz and let them know it was all in self defense...there's no justice system, it's just a system, a corrupted, suppressing, unjust system.... They still on this race war, stop being a punk and fight..."...my girl A.B is always bringing it raw...love ya girl, but you are so right on so many levels!
Here is another picture I saw a few days ago...its sad that we have to explain to our youth WHY things like this happen. How do we explain this to our youth!?
