FAR TOO MANY OF YOU DYING!
“Mother, mother there’s too many of you crying. Brother, brother, brother there’s far too many of you dying.” These are the words of singer/songwriter, Marvin Gaye. It’s crazy how these song lyrics are so prevalent to what’s going on in today’s society. So many mothers and fathers are burying their sons and daughters to senseless violence.
I’m pretty sure this is not what Dr. King or Malcolm X had envisioned for the black community. It truly saddens me to see so many black people constantly be killed and for what? I find it very hard even to bring a black boy or girl into this world knowing that they are a target because of the color of their skin.
If it’s not gang violence, then black men and women are being profiled and killed by the police. The same police that is supposed to protect us. Even though we have come a long way, there is still many ways to go. Racism is still alive and black on black crime is not helping the issue either. Unite the black community, educate the black mind and liberate the soul.
