The untimely deaths of black youth across the United States is a major concern and wake up call for peace and non-violence.
As the grand jury in Missouri and New York rendered its decision on not indict white police officers for shooting Michael Brown, Tamir Rice and Eric Gardner, the question remains, where is the justice? Every day a black mother has to believe the impossible that her child is dead due to the insensitivity and anger of another human being. As a parent, it would be inconceivable to process, burying a child whom you planned to bury you. I know people have been saying for years that too many black people, especially our young men, are dying to violence. Many of us have thrown our hands up, and given up on solutions that could deter the cycle of violence impeding the young lives of people we love. Police officers and people in the community must start respecting black life, instead of fearing the stereotypes invented from insentive people of the past.
