The brutal killing of one black man has morphed into mass demonstrations all over America. That’s not such a bad idea at all. However, Dr. King is probably spinning in his grave at how his non-violent approach to racism has been corrupted into a sporting event of looting, burning and violence. Is this the justice for George we were expecting. No, justice was hijacked so stores could be emptied, business’ set on fire and grudges against police and society in general could be acted out.
If that’s not heartbreaking enough, here is the gut-kick. This past weekend, 27 people were killed and 92 shot all unrelated to the protests going on. This is black-on-black violence that white America doesn’t want to hear about, let alone protest against. I wonder why they chose to ignore this every weekend event when tv camera’s aren’t present. Where are the mass protests ?
