Jim Crow MLK marching yes even then

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Whites are accused of not seeing the race problem that exist in America.  Even when Jim Crow gave legal support to racism and MLK was marching most Whites did not see race as a problem ¿Really?  As a White man who does see race as a problem in America, and my, “seeing” at this moment includes images of the surviving girlfriend in her facebook live video.  Her trauma is heartbreaking.  It incomprehensible how any American or American resident can watch her trauma while discounting race as a contributing factor to her boyfriends unnecessary death at the hands of a White Minnesota officer, but people deny the race contribution in mass.  The conservative extremist I follow on twitter, “stand with Blue” and “choose Blue” after Dallas, but tweets after Minnesota were not noticeable.  I sit t home on a Saturday morning with my wife enroute to NYC articulating how a White man has good reason to trust fair consideration of the Justice System while a Black man has good reason not to trust fair consideration by the Justice System.  My fellow Americans who are Black have reason to feel something different than I do when seeing a cop, and that different feeling is because they’re Black.  Race is a problem; I see it; only people in denial don’t see it . . . . ¿What should we do? »»  about me  302-990-2346  twitter  nearlincoln@hotmail.com  contact us
