You would think that after the countless protest and countless commotion on social media that the racial tension would decrease right? Well nope it is the total opposite for many citizens of the south, especially in Texas. Texas is not the highest with racial tension but it definitely is up there with the most racist states.
The fact that many African American men are becoming hashtags and it is just becoming a regular thing for police brutality to occur without any consequence is not okay. Alva Braziel was shot dead early this morning in Houston, Texas. It is disgusting what is happening.
A by stander who was also black stated that the blacks in that town and city are targeted. He also expressed that he doesn’t feel safe anywhere he goes and it makes you not even want to walk outside of your house for anything.
I need the minorities to come together. I need that, now.
I saw the bloods and the cryptes tie their flags together to show a union and I am more than pleased to see that! That union needs to spread all over, that is the only way we will not fall.

In case you didn’t know ignorance doesn’t cure ignorance just like hate does not drive out hate, only love does that. These recent police shootings were uncalled for just as the ongoing MURDERS protected under this immunity, of the black community has been as well. I’m not saying that the cop shooting and deaths were acceptable but what I will say is it wasn’t a surprising retaliation to me at all.
There are so many issues at hand but it really starts with being educated about the world and how it works. There are laws that need to be changed in law enforcement and in this “justice system” hands down. But where we need to start is through peacefully protesting and petitioning. Also, we need to vote on all levels, get into politics and still fight for your people don’t be a sell out.
I think making changes is very simple but people just make it hard. White people have no excuse to be mad because they were never enslaved NOR treated as less than human for generations. However, black people cannot be so quick to pull the race card either nor be so furious about police brutality when we are continuously killing in our own communities daily for nothing.
Don’t be a contradiction, talk about the real issues. Minorities should come together and see what happens then. I dare minorities to come together. These racist white people talk about fear?
They haven’t even felt it yet.

Three suspects are in police custody and one is dead after an attack on police during what was supposed to be a peaceful protest in downtown Dallas. Two shooters were snipers, who shot from “elevated positions” and another claimed that there were bombs planted downtown.

The recent killings of black men at the hands of police officers have hurt so many more hearts than I can imagine. I am honestly torn between being speechless and having so much to say simultaneously. I appreciate certain celebrities, actors, and other famous figures using their platforms to persistently speak on these issues as well because at the end of the day that is what it’s all about.
I will soon be writing a special piece addressing the real tea of “black lives matter vs. all live matter”, the definition of “real america”, the real war that has transpired in the black communities with one another and obviously the police brutality and legal inequalities that have been present for over 400 years. Oh, and also the corruption in the law enforcement and the government.
If you are a person who will never know how it feels to always be looked at sideways just because of the color of your skin than stand up for all minorities now in this time. This is when we need you and minorities this is the time we need one another. Don’t be blinded by ignorance. Education is key!

The vicious attack on the African-American race sadly continues. Another fallen soldier by the name of Alton Sterling was killed for no reason by two white cops. This senseless and foul war will not stop if people do not began to address the enemy inside of them first. This post is one that calls attention to so many things but the most is:
E D U C A T I O N!
It breaks my heart that this continues to happen but more than that it hurts me that the majority of white people still look at other ethnicities, especially blacks as inferior, and inferior to the point of animals. Don’t you know that the earth literally feels everything we as humans do?
From wars, to shootings, to stabbings it all is connected to what the future will look like for ALL of us. I said this once before and I will say it again: Even though you think you are winning by trapping our race in your systematic concentration camps, making us slaves to your minimum or below minimum pay jobs, and turning us on one another you are killing yourselves too.
Without black people or people of indigenous background the earth will not survive. We will all die in the end. And contrary to what you may think you will not get the last word in this battle that you chose and continue to choose with us.
I love how all the celebrities and famous actors are posting and taking a stand in that way but we also need to remember that the only thing different from back then are the cameras. The violence has never ceased, never.
We need to make a change, you are kings Black Men, know your value and potential. Educate yourself, there is always a way!
