alton-sterling-philando-castle-dead-july2016The fatalities of Alton Sterling and Philando Castle
reassures us of the certainty that a black man is to be hassled.

I don’t have to mention that the killing of black citizens is grossly disproportioned…
Nothing is being done law- wise and the negligence is tallying up a renewable sum.

No one is charged with sounding the alarm to decry these crimes of race….
therefore both Alton and Philando have died in a long line of police disgrace.

These two men died just days apart.
In less than three days we loss two hearts.

Alton was 37 and Philando was only 32+2
Neither killed 9 in a church, so why was death their truth?

Both are deceased and now charged with ‘handgun concealing.’
Philando was licensed – so how’s his family feeling?

Alton’s firearm was found inside of his pants pocket after he was pronounced dead.
Cop body camera’s didn’t record all of it – a malfunction is the reason they’ve said.

Philando was a passenger riding in the car with his girlfriend yesterday
when a Minnesota police approached the passenger side and blew him away.

The video footage is raw, if the video doesn’t open below, here is a link.
The girlfriend taped it on her cell phone, please WATCH THIS and think:

There was a child in the backseat when all of this went down.
How on earth will her trust and feelings of security every come around?

The child was elementary age and while she didn’t understand what her mother was going through,
She consoled her mother in the rear of a police car say, “I’m right here Mommy…I’m with you.”

What are we doing America? Desensitizing the child?
What will our future look like if we continue on this mile?

Digest DERRICK JAXN’S morning video post on this topic:

These men were killed two days in a row: Tuesday and Wednesday.
How should the black community feel? We’re a targeted race.

Where are the troops? Why aren’t laws being put on the books?
I suppose it’s because the victims largely have a minority look.

Minorities have been marching and praying incessantly,
though I think our offspring are taking note and will approach things differently.

Tomorrow will sure hold more sorrow.

black-harassment-black-lives-matterWhere is the political conversation? Someone better tackle this!
This NEWS PERUSE has a bloody fuse – this isn’t a topic we want to miss.

The candidates have political laryngitis and have said nothing to the effect.
America can not be whole with this fundamental disconnect.



I posted this 2-years ago… unfortunately there have been many more killed since 2014

If white families were being ripped apart by “accidental shootings,” everyday
The national guard and the KKK would be out on the streets and in play.

This is not the case today; no such assistance has come.
I’m Qui
and todays NEWS PERUSE is for serious thought – not much for fun.

Savannah Hartman has spoken up for US and I love her.
Let the tears on my face be the acceptance that )))HUGS((( her:
She’s WHITE and she’s RIGHT.
