“If you are silent about your pain, they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it” Zora Neale Hurston

So whats next? How do we move on from this? It was proven yet again that it is ok to kill a black person who was blatantly protecting himself from someone who was following him. America, I blame you. I blame your racism that still exist. I blame your inequality that still exist. George Zimmerman was told to stay in his car, but instead he decided to take the law into his own hands. Growing up, it was told to some of us in school that you fight force with force. Meaning that if someone is using their fist, you do the same thing, not use a gun when they are using their fist. With that being said, George should have and could have defended himself by having a fair fight. We have to wonder if our justice system is really fair??? What do we do??? Well first off we don’t GIVE up. We continue to press on. We find and make ways to have laws changed. But this duty lies with US! We VOTE these people in….WAIT RIGHT THERE…WE VOTE THESE PEOPLE IN!! Meaning that WE must exercise the right that our ancestors fought for us to have. We vote because we can vote better in while voting the horrible people out. We can’t let the dream of Martin Luther King Jr be forgotten or go deterred. If you want to have a march, march on. If you want to have a rally, rally on. If you are encouraged to go law school GO and become the best attorney you can! Whatever you decide to do, do not let this go in vain. America must live up to what it is “supposedly” based on. This is in order to prove that a black boy should be able to walk home without being followed, racial profiled, and murdered.

“WE ARE TROY DAVIS”

September 21 2011 will always be a day that Georgia and America will remember. 11:08 PM will always be four numbers that will forever be in people’s mind. Just last night I found myself looking at the clock at 11:08 PM thinking Troy Davis could still be looking at the same thing if America would have taken a bigger stand. The fight was Troy Davis is amazing. People came from as far west in support of Troy Davis. There were celebrities out there taking a stand. But to some people, it is now apart of the past. Do we sit back and do nothing, do we let an incident like this happen again? NO! We must fight to end injustice in this world. Most people can tell you everything that happens on the BET and MTV awards but nothing about whats happening in the world let alone their community. Our ancestors fought hard for the things we are afforded today, whats wrong with us continuing to fight? When we put others before ourselves, our blessing become 3 fold. We as a people as a nation need to be more engaged. Most of us joined greek organizations did community to join, did community service once we were members BUT has since stopped. Why can’t we fulfill the oaths we took to our organization by continuing community action? Once we take a stand against injustice life will be better for generations to come.
