But, ask yourself, what has the city done up to this point? Are we still consciously aware this is an ongoing issue?
If other countries know this is an issue, what will it take for us to work towards community policing & us-based solutions? This is not a cause that ended with Rosa and Claudette. It didn't end with Angela or Kathleen. In fact, the only American violences to rival the lynchings of their eras since are weekly/daily these instances that seed uprisings.
Until our policing is coming from within our communities (and not surrounding counties), these children will remain unsafe, their futures will remain unpromised, and the city will not be able to unite and rise. This is all by design. No matter who you are, be weary, & be awake! Civil Rights is not over for those in so many communities, the fight is alive & the love is power!
Rest in Power Pepper.
