This Needs To Stop
Racial inequality has been instilled in America since its founding days. From times of slavery, Jim Crowe Laws, to police brutality the list goes on. For decades society has turned a blind eye to what has been going on in the African-American communities. Even with all the recorded evidence of police unjustly murdering African-Americans, there is still corruption in the system. And it’s because of this institutionalized racism that Ahmaud Arbery’s life was taken. And what was he doing you might ask, going for a jog in his neighborhood, like many of us have been doing during quarantine.
This Is America
Gregory and Travis McMichael have been arrested for his murder, but sadly things are don’t come out like we expect them too. There’s been a long history in America that we’ve seen where black lives are taken, but justice is rarely ever served. NBA All-Star LeBron James took a Twitter to let out his frustration about the innocent lives that have been taken.
“We’re literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes! Can’t even go for a damn jog man! Like WTF man are you kidding me?!?!?!?!?!? No man fr ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!! I’m sorry Ahmaud(Rest In Paradise) and my prayers and blessings sent to the….. heavens above to your family.”
It is not just LeBron that is feeling this way either. We are all tired of these killings, tired of seeing love ones cry, and tired of wondering if it’s the last time we may see one of our friends or family members. How many more lives will be taken before it’s finally stopped?
