demandjustice_ #rp What do these 6 young Black men have in common besides what I just mentioned..!? They were all MURDERED by police with exception of one. Oscar Grant was beat and shot by police in Bart police in Oakland, CA. Trayvon Martin was beat and killed by George Zimmerman, a wana be cop in Sanford, FL. Jordan Davis was killed by an intoxicated man who felt like Jordan's music was too loud in Jacksonville, FL. Eric Garner was placed in a chokehold by NYC police; subsequently he died on the streets of New York City. Michael Brown was shot 6 times by Ferguson police, twice in the head and 4 times in his side. Ezell Ford was shot by Los Angeles police in Los Angeles, CA. --- It seems like a weekly occurrence that a black man must be shot down and killed by police. Some people will call us racist because we are defending the Black population. Some people will say it's not happening in your neighborhood so mind your business. Some people might even say what about the white people who have been violated by Blacks. And one thing that I hear way too much is that this is not an issue of race or color and THAT IS A BOLD FACE LIE. One of the reasons that racism is as prevalent as it is in 2014 is because people are afraid to discuss race relations. People are afraid to say white black black white. And I know that to be a fact because I too felt that way once upon a time. But as life has positioned and conditioned me for this moment, I understand that if we are going to eliminate racism at even the smallest percentage we must first discuss race. Black people all across this nation are fed up with our young black men and women being killed and mistreated by racist white people. As we go about our Friday, let us pause for just a moment and reflect and remember the lives of those who were lost senselessly to police brutality. #OscarGrant #TrayvonMartin #JordanDavis #EricGarner #MichaelBrown #EzellFord and the list goes on....#DemandJusticeNow 3mon
