White America what Is it you do not understand?

“Only those being burned know what fire is like.”
–Ethel Waters

On August 12th 1950 21-year old Pfc Thomas Edward Brooks dressed in full military dress boarded the city bus in Montgomery, Alabama, he paid his fare and took his seat in the “white section” of the city bus and the white bus driver ordered him to sit at the back of the bus which he did refuse to do.
The white bus driver flagged down a white city policeman and the white city policeman ran onto the bus pulling out his billy-club and striking the young black soldier over his head.

The black young soldier in uniform being semi-conscious was dragged off the bus by the white bus driver and the white policeman and he was thrown to the ground and as the soldier struggled to stand up the white policeman shot him in the back killing him.

I ask the question of WHITE AMERICA…what is it that you do not understand?

Recently in Atlanta’s home town newspaper ( Atlanta Journal) Governor Nathan Deal of Georgia called the “Black Lives Matter” demonstration an “anti-police protest” I could not believe what I was reading;
is Governor Nathan Deal so out of touch with reality that he could utter such nonsense out into such a far reaching publication as The Atlanta Journal Constitution?

My mind began to churn, what about the rest of white America? Do they see Black Lives Matter as
a violent group that is “anti-police” ? Mr. Nathan Deal’s ignorance does not bode well for the state
of Georgia, further his remarks here on a most important organization shows he only knows what is good for white folk and to hell with what matters to black sons and daughters being killed at every turn by some twisted, white racist policeman that should never be allowed to wear that badge and gun.

In the recent series of white police killing black men as if for sport is growing beyond appalling;
the images captured on cell phones and YouTube are hellish for the minds of decent people of all races, creeds and colors.

Seeing Laquan McDonald being shot sixteen times as he lays helpless on the ground by a Chicago city white police officer makes us want to vomit it is so disgusting!

White America try to put on this black skin, and try to imagine you just got pulled over by a white racist cop with a badge and a gun to treat you just like SHIT if he desires.
Imagine reaching for your wallet and you are shot and killed just because your skin color is
BLACK!

I close with a quote by a black film actress and she said,

“Only those being burned know what fire is like.”
–Ethel Waters

Oh! God…how we need Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at this very horrible hour where we find our children at the hands of madmen, godless men, who are the true and most vile devils to walk this earth.
