Currently, there is a new trial set in Jacksonville, Florida for the murder of a young Black teenager, Jordan Davis, who was shot to death while listening to music in a vehicle driven by his friend in December, 2012. An unknown white man approached the vehicle complaining about the music; words were exchanged, the next thing you know; Jason was dead. Shot 8 times. There were no weapons in the vehicle.
Are our children targets by crazy white males?
Jordan is yet another victim of extreme profiling.
One can only assume what if that were a car with a group of white boys; would this man would have approached the vehicle in the same manner?
Yet, people keep trying to tell Black people that we should integrate with whites?
Black people need to stop believing this post-racial garbage and realize that we are still in a state of emergency.
It’s bad enough that the economy has impacted many Black people, but it also has motivated racial hatred in this country to keep creeping up in the most unlikely places.
Jordan was outside at a convenience store–minding his own business, listening to music, however, AGAIN…an angry white male was present–took the time to presume a racial bias; then, acted on it. And just 10 months after Trayvon Martin’s death; another young Black teenager paid the price for being born with melanin in his skin.
Enough is enough!
There is a time for all things and the Black community have got to take action.
Our children are not prey–and it’s high time this entire country gets put on notice that we will take physical action against those who continue to commit these acts on our children.
We will not tolerate it!
Jury selection started on February 3, 2014.
Let us pray that there will be justice for this young man and his family.
