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 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.
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.

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.
Had to weigh in on the senseless violence that is taking place now across America…We all can understand the level of frustration with a justice system that fails so many victims, but the answer is NOT to go after the men and women in blue that serve to protect you. Not all police officers are careless about taking someone’s life. READ MORE
