Good Morning! Today is a very tragic day, because it is another day that we have to bury one of our brothers and sisters do to the brutal violence of the Police!
It has been far too long and far too many deaths for us not to feel outraged about these things because it seems as though we are not being heard, we do not matter, we are worthless. And when I say we, you know who I’m talking about!
This young man, who’s funeral will be held today is Freddie Gray of Baltimore Maryland, a young man who was arrested by the PD and days later, died of spinal injury endured during his arrested or while in custody of the police department.
We are all far too familiar with this story and the protests that go along with it because we know about Michael Brown and Eric Garner. However, despite the lack of coverage by the countries “esteemed” news organizations, we can see that the protest in B-more have not all been peaceful! From fights, to store damage, to cars being destroyed, it has been truly devastating.
MY PEOPLE! This is NOT what we want to achieve out of protest! Don’t give them what they want! THIS IS WHAT THEY WANT! “LOOK AT THEM, THEY ARE BLACK ANIMALS WHO SHOULD ALL BE DESTROYED AND THATS WHY WE WILL NOT HELP THEM, THATS WHY OUR ACTIONS ARE JUSTIFIED”
That’s how they think when they see you, especially trashing your own streets! We have to do better! Don’t get me wrong, this justice system is complete BULLSHIT! But if we want to change it, lets infiltrate it not destroy it! Let’s vote! Get the people in office we KNOW should be there.
I just hope that the funeral today will be peaceful for the sake of the family, Freddie, and just us as a people. I know I’m coming down hard on us but we play a part in what they think of us, so the change will start partly from within.
RIP FREDDIE and all those who lost their lives to police brutality and blatant abuse of power!
Peace and Blessings
