Alton Sterling Home Going

Today marks the first day that the family and friends of Alton Sterling have gathered to acknowledge his great life all together. The family is mourning and mourning over this unnecessary tragedy that happened with no mercy or care in the world of racist cops. I believe the cops when they say that I they are scared of African Americans because we can run the world and that loss of control is something very precious to them as its been for years. However, none of this justifies them killing us day by day.

Now although these white on black crimes are disgusting beyond measure can we talk about the real issue or not?

Because I’m going to tell you right now that “black lives” never mattered the day we started killing ourselves ruthlessly. See, when we start to talk about what really needs to take places for us to be taken seriously as a people no one wants to say a word. I personally have a problem that.

If we can’t address and try to fix the real issue then shut up about racial discrimination when the discrimination in our own race is outrageous.

 

Nonetheless, our sincere prayers are with Alton’s family and for all the fallen to racial discrimination and discrimination, fear and hate period within our race.

Elie was so recognized that he also was awarded the Noble Peace prize in 1986 for all of his marvelous books about his experiences in concentration camps. His books were so good that he was given the nickname “messenger of mankind” by many people.

It is times like these where we actually like to remember that things such as the Holocaust even happened and it wasn’t that long ago that it happened either. I am grateful for all the stories that he shared giving the jewish people a voice but I wish that people would make issues like this popular when they are actually occurring opposed to after the fact.

 

However, this man lived a good life and many people from his community and outside of his community respected him for what he shared. It must be hard to share such experiences but if no one speaks up then we all fall subject to history repeating itself with no control of the outcome.
