“No Rights Which The White Man Was Bound To Respect”
So just to be clear, #iftheygunnedmedown the burden would be on my family and friends to prove why I should have lived. Is that what we’re doing? Are those what the rules are? Got it.
“Because I’m desperately trying to figure out what year this is, and my math is just not adding up to what’s actually taking place….because history is telling me that I shouldn’t be surprised…because the criminal injustice system is doing exactly what it’s designed to do…because “A system cannot fail those it was never built to protect.”
Felt the same way about Trayvon and others, and I’m feeling it again tonight as I think of Michael Brown.
How many times will America need to look itself in the mirror before it actually sees its true reflection? First, it has to get a mirror.
