More of the Same

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Matthew 5:44

Two black men shot to death by police officers in two different states.

Alton Sterling of Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Philando Castile of Falcon Heights, Minnesota are yet two more black men who have died by violence at the hands of white police officers.

And with these two public killings, protestors of numerous walks of life, black, white, Latino, Asian, old and young, came together in the streets across America to show their disgust, as well as, their resolve that these public killings at the hands of police must end.

But while the protesting was taking place and the news media continue to spin these tragic deaths, unbeknownst to Americans, one person came to a breaking point and decided to take vengeance against the Dallas Police.

A day later, the nation witness five police officers killed, five wounded along with two civilians.

By the break of day the news media carried their stories based on their audience demographics.

Within a forty-eight hours news cycle, the two black men who were killed by white police officers became a mere by-line and the men in blue are now portrayed as the victims.

What is more ridiculous is how President Obama is being accused of being against law enforcement officers and siding with of all people, black men.

Well, I for one have to keep it real. Thank God that there is someone in a position in power in America who is willing to speak up for black men. At the rate of these police public killings of innocent black males, young and old, something needs to be done, and that is sooner than later.

Now, I have read too many comments of white folks saying that “we kill more of our own than police do.”

But if we carry on this masquerade of thinking that one race is more superior than another race based merely on color.

Then America had better be ready to look to a different rebellion unlike the sixties.

Hatred, fear, racism and bigotry are a worthless cause in the eyes of God.
