Michael Jordan is the latest celebrity of many to finally speak up and use their platform to address the issues that are currently plaguing our society: the unjustified shootings of African Americans and the killings of police officers.
About two days ago July 20th at 7 am in the morning in Capitol Heights, Maryland a man was senselessly murdered by an ignorant individual. The police are saying that this shooting was a homicide and are still looking for a suspect. Apparently what happened is this man had just finished pumping his gas and this boy walked up to him and shot him. The man was 68 years old and later died at the hospital from his bullet wound.
This really bothers my soul. We are sitting here worried about another race killing us but we are overlooking the things we do to ourselves do to ignorance and fear. But blacklivesmatter, right? So let’s start with fixing the brokenness within us. That is where everything will start because of course people and other races are going to see how broken we are and use that against us because it is a weakness.
So many people are claiming to be woke but are you really? Because the enemies right now are ourselves. Pray for this family pray for the world because whether he had motive or not that was someone’s father, dad, uncle, brother, or cousin.
We have to do better. The bloodshed is ridiculous and people’s mindsets are all over the place.
Ray Rice hasn’t played on an NFL field since his time with the Baltimore Ravens in 2013. In an infamous video, Rice struck his now-wife and knocked her unconscious in an elevator. The scandal broke national headlines and resulted in Rice being discharged from the NFL in 2014. In a new interview, he told USA TODAY that he will donate his entire 2016 NFL salary if he is drafted by a team.
A.J. Bohannon, a Black Lives Matter activist who once watched his cousin mistakenly get gunned down by police in 2012, had gathered more than 1,000 other activists to march through the streets of Wichita, Kansas on Sunday afternoon. But that plan changed when he received a call from Wichita’s new police chief just days before the scheduled event. The new idea was to hold an event where police and protesters could effectively come together to ease the tensions that have risen in the wake of recent police shootings in America.
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.

Dayshen McKenzie, another young African-American boy dead because of the hatred in this world. This young boy was running for his life from a racist mob of predominantly white males, with one hispanic who threatened him with a gun. His cause of death was an asthma attack which occurred while he was running for his life. He was attacked with racial slurs as well and apparently this was all over a fall out with some, girl?
The car that was driven had Pennsylvania tags and all these boys are in their teens. I am honestly speechless. There is just one story after the next about African-Americans dying and racism continuing to be demonstrated.
I can only imagine what the mother of this young boy is going through. The fact that I’m not even surprised that things like this are still occurring is sad. I shouldn’t be afraid to go on a road trip anywhere in this world because I’m afraid of being racially profiled or caught by rednecks, hill billy’s, or members of the KKK.
ALL OF THIS HATE IS JUST TOO MUCH!
I don’t see what joy is brought out of hating so much and for no reason at that.
It’s crazy and at the end of the day, if we are willing killing one race of people we are in turn killing the entire human race. It is just that simple.
When will that sink in?
