How Many Times Does This Have To Happen?

How many times a Black person have to be murdered by a so called oops before America realize something is terribly wrong with this shoot first and ask questions later, if it’s a Black person? How did we as a people sink to a level that it’s ok to murder someone if we think someone is threatening to us? Why does it always have to be a Black person on the receiving end of the gun barrel when these so called mistakes take place?

I refuse to sit here and name time after time these unfortunate tragedies have taken place; I believe my time would be better spent sharing my views why these senseless tragedies are happening in the first place.

I believe these tragedies are happening on a recurring basis because we as Black people have allowed ourselves to be lulled into a false sense of gullibility, just because there is a Black President. If it wasn’t for the protection the President receives from the Secret Service, President Obama would be just as vulnerable to these tragedies as young Ms. Renisha McBride and Mr. Travon Martin were.

We as Black people need to stop taking for granted the laws written to protect our rights just because ‘Jim Crow’ laws were over ruled by the ‘Civil Rights Act of 1964’. I honestly believe every Black person is a complete fool if he or she is not heavily armed at all times; even if their weapon is illegally possessed.
