Today we as people have embarked on a new era. The times have changed, the seasons have turned and the people have become vain and numb to the sensible way of living. The things we had once cared about have become waste, the decisions we’ve made as a people have created a generation of lost love for souls. Where as before the founding forefathers were brought over to America fought against the slave owners to keep their families together. Where as now people fight against their own families to get away from them by getting a divorce, or legal separation, or even as far as creating baby daddy’s and baby momma’s. How can we as a people want more out of life when life is demanding more out of us and we refuse to give more of what we have to offer back to life. The challenge to overcome every obstacle is not won by fighting the obstacle itself but by overturning its intentions to break us down and keep us from moving in the direction we were attempting to go before the challenge was in our way.

The word is out. Everyone knows. The Freddie Gray case outcome is out and all three of the officers in that case are not being held accountable for their actions that night. Freddie Gray was a case in the inner city of Baltimore. Here is where one of the biggest out roars happened.
I know that the Black Lives Matter community really came together well after this situation even happened but it was one of the major cases that sparked the movement. Freddie was beat up and killed while in custody of the police and of course the police have an “excuse” for why they had to use force.
There is no justifiable reason at all for killing an innocent man. These racist police officers do not care about black lives and that is why they get so trigger happy and so called scared when they get around the black man. It is an indescribable feeling that the entire black community and people in general encounter when one soldier falls.
The unlawful actions of the “justice system” will have to be endured sooner than later.

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.

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.

The rapper, The Game has been making moves lately in regards to the big headlines and issues we have in the black communities. He was recently at the LA Police Department with Snoop Dogg discussing possible solutions to make sure that everyone is doing their part in being just and fair. And guess what else he did just now?
The Game brought the two biggest black gang bangers around the world to make peace, Bloods and Crips. I know for a fact that the game sees the bigger picture in all of this turmoil.
It will do us no good to march the streets yelling “BLACKLIVESMATTER” after tragedies happen with white and black people but disregard the reckless and careless actions we have toward one another in the black community.
We are only not a force to be reckoned with when we come together and realize that the war is with the ignorant and uneducated people filled with fear and hate. We can not keep killing one another and make it easy for the oppressor.
The only way to win is to think smarter together!

Today about a few hours ago there was another shooting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. There were 7 cops injured and 3 cops dead. Apparently, the cops were mixed in race I believe but that shouldn’t even be relevant however it is. We all know that there is a war going on, but it is not a new one at all.
One of the shooters was caught and he again claimed he was doing it under the movement of black lives matter. Again, another ignorant person using that as an excuse for taking that anger and killing innocent people.
How does killing officers who are there and protect you help anything? It might make you feel good for the moment but at the end of the day that was someone’s father or mother that you just murdered for doing their job as they were hired to do genuinely and honestly.
We are so lost as a people and all I can do is pray every time I see news reports like these on my timeline. Think about all the black lives that have been taken by black lives! C’mon people wake up!!!!
We are so much better than this, so much better.
