Young black men victimized

Back in the days of slavery, they would hang young black men in trees, and no one cared. They’d just walk on by.

Now, they’re shooting and killing an unarmed young black man because someone felt threatened. Of course, the young black man can’t defend himself because he’s full of lead in the morgue.

The white men who shoot them, some wearing badges, never come to justice. In my opinion, our justice system is not always just for the dark-skinned people of many races.

The young black men are still being murdered, just not by hanging. I believe if a young black man was carrying a comb in his hand, he’d be perceived as a threat, and his life would be in jeopardy.

If we whites would have been born black, and those were our sons being killed, we’d be furious and on the steps of our state capitol building demanding justice and changes in the law. Walk in another man’s shoes.

First Trayvon Martin, then Michael Brown. When will it end?

May God touch hearts and open eyes to the unnecessary killings. We are all God’s children. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. (Matthew 19:19)
