This Day In Black History
Injustice Thrives In These United States
July 13, 2013
It’s hard to fathom that it has been seven years since a jury in Sanford, Florida allowed a murderer, George Zimmerman, to walk free for killing Trayvon Martin simply because Trayvon was a young black man walking home in a gated mostly white community. A great deal of injustice has been served on innocent African American victims since that jury verdict was rendered. We are no closer to resolving the issue of racism in this nation seven years later. No matter how confederate statues come down or professional teams change there team names. Racism, hateful racism, is alive and thriving in this supposed nation of democracy and freedom. This is what I wrote seven years ago about the verdict that shouldn’t have shocked the nation. Because it was business as usual for white America in its treatment of African Americans.
Oh well maybe this is the "black folks" come to Jesus moment when reality strikes them dead in the face that no matter what our station in life we will always be considered second class citizens by so many white Americans in this great country. America, love it or leave it was the call of the silent majority during the Nixonian Years. Yes, we have made strides but for every stride forward made by African Americans. The America based on white supremacy answered with a Justice Clarence Thomas, or a George Zimmerman, or a Flordia Courtroom, or black youth taking down another or rapping the joys of thuggery and malice on their sisters of colors being posterized on BET.
I'm almost 60 and I encountered personally the racism of this nation. Now this morning educated and limited educated black folks are up in arms with the reality that they are no lower than a dead dog in the state of Florida.
In Virginia, Mike Vick was sentenced to what 3 years for killing dogs but in the State of Florida George Zimmerman is proclaimed free and clear for taking a human life. I digress to simpler times when ....... oh hell no there were no simpler times for Black America.
