***Right now…I’m listening to Fear of a Black Planet. That album came out almost 30 years ago and its message is as relevant today as it was in
What’s going to be the tipping point?
Yesterday, a live stream video went viral showing a local Tulsa, Oklahoma man, Terrence Crutcher, being gunned down by a white female officer, later identified as, Betty Shelby. He was unarmed. He wasn’t a threat. His car has stalled in the road and he was walking toward the police for help. The police recorded video, with audio, exposed one of the officers in the helicopter stating after Terrance got out of the car, that, “He looks like a bad dude.” Well that “bad dude” was coming home from class. That “bad dude” was a father. That “bad dude” had a twin sister. That “bad dude” sang in his church choir. That “bad dude” had a wife who is now in pain after having to understand the senseless manner in which her husband died.
The reactions on line were angry but many kept asking the question: “When is this going to stop?”
This is exactly why Colin Kaepernick is protesting.
So, another Black man was “mistakenly” killed?
No one is that stupid.
We see what is going on.
It’s becoming an epidemic and demands a counter response–violent if necessary.
These are legalized executions of Black males by white led police departments. And I’m not hearing anymore of the typical response, “we feared for our lives.”
The problem is not your fear but opportunity to carry out legalized killings of a population of males that threaten white supremacy the most!!!
There are so many images of this, it’s literally become like a sick inside joke for police departments as to how they respond to these orchestrated killings.
From children to man in wheelchairs.
On the same day, a man in North Carolina was shot and killed for carrying a book. Per usual, the cop said that he “thought he had a gun…”
No one is hearing this any longer. Even celebrities are speaking out about this.
The time has come, Black people. We are THE ENEMY of White Supremacy.
Are we going to let them keep killing our people and do nothing or are we going to FIGHT? Do Black Lives Really Matter?
The choice is yours.
As of today, another Black woman plans a funeral.
