COMING SOON THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED BREATHE BY DERRICK JOHNSON
Since arriving in America, Afro Americans has suffered from oppression in almost every form imaginable. The systemic racism in policing, home ownership, education, political, as well as banking.
Whites have for decades continue to point out the crime statistics with Afro Americans, but the truth of the matter, the situation between the police and black communities has little to do with criminality, but it's rather political as well as sociological.
the times we currently live in is an unequal and inequitable society.
What we must educate the unknowing to, is that the police officer's job is to reinforce the inequality, and now more than any other time in history. Everyone who believes that every life matters, regardless of rce, gender, religion, nor what we look like, where we come from, or who we worship, we as people are of infinite worth.
It's time we address the root of the problem, which is the system in its entirety, because it allows racism to continue to exist and flourish.
No longer is it okay to turn a blind eye to the injustices being perpertrated through racism's ugly nature. We Americans have to look at it for what it is, not for what we are comfortable believing. So educating ourselves about the racism that's embedded in the foundations of the system we live in.
Law enforcement's power structrue is controlled by the ruling class, the police don't belong to the community, but this doesn't mean we can't makeourselves as well as others hold both the city and the Government accountable for the recruiting and hiring of the officers who are doing the evil murderous things to the black communites. These officers need vetting, as well as cultrual diversity training to better help them relate and understand the community and people they are policing, and lose the them vs us mentality...ONLY THEN CAN WE TRULY BREATHE
