When does it end?!?
My mother made a very good point. She informed me that neighborhood watch patrols are not supposed to carry any kinds of weapons on them, much less guns. My mother said, "if he didn't have that gun on him, he would have never bothered the young man at all." That statement is so true, he would have never called the police, never chased the boy, and never felt "powerful" to pull out his gun and shoot a defenseless victim. And the worst part is, things like this happen every single day all across the country, and go unmentioned because the death of a Black man is still considered "not much of a loss." As I always say.....400 years doesn't disappear overnight. The one million hoodie rally in NYC is an amazing gesture, it truly is. But at the end of the day, after raising him so well, an African American couple will never get their son back.
My heart and soul go out to the family for their loss. After an awful event like this, I can only hope and pray for my future sons if I have any.
