Obama, Obama, why have you forsaken us? #BlackLivesMatter






During this time I’ve pulled children out of clouds of tear gas. I’ve witnessed white women who are members of the clergy collectively praying in front of tanks and armored vehicles. One of these women was mercilessly shot with a rubber bullet by the police while praying for peace. Our neighborhood was occupied by the police as if they were an invading army laying siege to their enemy and pillaging the remains. Our basic civil rights were stripped away as we were treated like cattle in the name of a sick, sadistic experiment in martial law. We assumed that our beloved, black president would come to our defense and speak about the perils of police brutality, racial profiling, and Mike Brown’s unfortunate demise. Instead we felt as if he co-signed this unfair treatment and endorsed the brutal show of force the police displayed towards us. We are our only allies. No one in the world will stand up with us against such tyranny.
 This is the moment I asked myself, “Why did I vote for Barack Obama twice? Why are we being treated like this simply for demanding justice for our fallen brother?” I decided it is possible I’ll never vote for another American president for as long as I live. We live in America but we are clearly not included as Americans. Americans don’t unleash a completely militarized force upon other Americans. Americans don’t tear gas other Americans. Americans don’t drive tanks over the front yards of other Americans. By classical definition we are still poor black people who reside in America, but we are not considered equal to fellow American citizens and lawmakers. Our hopes and dreams are not valued or respected. Our worries and concerns often fall upon deaf ears.

 Let's talk about  NFL players so we won't have to talk about the real crisis in America.

When will America declare a WAR on Racism???

There will be justice once ALL the facts and forensic evidence are in! MANY black think we just go grab the officer up and put him in front of a firing squad and yet when they had a family member arrested I am sure the chants were innocent until proven guilty!! Why has the tune changed? The demand for justice? Justice is taking place. It is called an investigation and a grand jury then maybe a trial.

I also ask why I voted for a President who will apologize to a family before facts are in.A POTUS should not stick his head into a place it dos not belong. Did the POTUS apologize to the white mans family killed by the black Salt Lake City officer?

The forensic evidence is in. Mike Brown was shot at least 6 times. He was unarmed. There are several witnesses who say his hands were up.

No one is calling for Darren Wilson to be put before a firing squad. We are calling for him to be arrested and bought before a judge and a jury on the grounds he became the judge, jury and the executioner by putting Mike Brown in front of a one man firing squad. In other words, we asking for the same justice for Mike Brown that you are asking for Darren Wilson.

Darren Wilson didn't wait for all the evidence to come in before he shot and killed Mike Brown in the middle of street in broad daylight.

POTUS expressed his sympathy to Michael Brown's family, he didn't apologize to them.

Wilson will go to trial if the grand jury indites him!Why do people not understand that?!! Eye witness testimony is not always reliable especially when the main guy with him LIED! I wonder id he will be in jail for robbery why is he not arrested for the crime since he was with Brown when the robbery occurred.

ROBBERY- is the crime of taking or attempting to take something of value by force or threat of force or by putting the victim in fear. At common law, robbery is defined as taking the property of another, with the intent to permanently deprive the person of that property, by means of force or fear

At least Wilson will get to go to trial IF the mostly white grand jury indicts him. The last I checked the punishment for robbery was not being gunned down in the middle of the street in broad daylight with your hands up in the air.

What if its a mostly black grand jury will they indict due to anger and feelings that they have to or be an uncle tom or will they go by the facts and forensic evidence in the case?
