Today in America, another unarmed black man was killed by the Police. You probably think I'm talking about Terence Crutcher right? Nope, according to US News "Charlotte police officers shot and killed an unidentified black man while serving a warrant for a different individual. Authorities say the victim was armed and posed an "imminent deadly threat." However, witnesses at the scene say he was carrying a book, not a gun." This man was waiting for his child after school, with a book. He had committed no crime, the officers weren't there to issue him a warrant or anything of a criminal nature, this man was just being a good father and got killed for it. I am as white as they come, but something almost as bad as the negativity coming from whites on this issue is the apathy of those who say nothing. If you listen to the music, enjoy the culture, yet are silent when these atrocities occurs, you are part of the problem. I can't imagine the fear felt when they see an officer in public, because all my experiences have been nothing like that. I've been pulled over a couple times for tickets and the only fear I felt was my parents finding out or my insurance going up. When these officers make no attempt to reach out to the community or understand the dynamics make for horrible officers because they live their life in fear, and like a cat that feels corner will attack no matter if there is a true threat or not. I am astounded people are screaming against a man taking a knee during the anthem and yet say nothing after someone is slaughtered in the streets. Serious reform is needed or this country will never EVER the land of the free where all people are equal, because right now, that is a myth. If I offended you, good.
Everything you need to know about the yay.
