A few words on the Senseless Killings in America…


It continues to happen. The senseless killings go on. Not just around the world but in our own backyards. You know what it’s about. It’s about the never-ending cycle of being considered less than in America. It in an embedded trait, embedded in the American conscious long ago. So long ago that to kill a dark skin boy or man, no matter the circumstance, is immediately portrayed as an act of self-defense.

Today’s America is no different from the America of our past. It  purports to be a society where equal rights have made gains,yet underneath the layers of this American system lies the same racist attitudes that existed since its foundation.

There is one thing that comes with a guarantee in America. That is, that we will see more like the senseless killing of Jordan Davis in our future because no matter what term is used to coin the so-called equal rights progress made, one need only look under the rug and see where the racism has been swept, that is, of course, after the blindfolds are removed.
