"We are human beings. We deserve to be buried by our children not the other way around. No matter how u felt about black people look at this mother and look at this father and tell me as a human being how u cannot feel empathy for them. How can u not feel sympathy for their pain and loss. These are not ‘THOTS, niggas/niggers, hoes, Ballers, Divas.’ These two people are parents. They are humans that produced a child and loved that child and that child was slaughtered like Game and left face down as public spectacle while his blood drained down the street.
Look at the pain of this mother; look into her eyes. Look at the man behind her. Look at that father made helpless and hurt that he cud not defend his seed. Don’t debate. Don’t insert your agenda. Save me the bullshit Black On Black Crime speech and look at these two Noble creatures called humans and look at what govt-sanctioned murder has done. It has robbed them of their humanity and replaced it with pain and shame, suffering and hurt.”

Lets take a moment to laugh
I'm a white kid from a poor area, the police aren't the bad guys, I've seen police help blacks. One bad apple doesn't make them all bad. Don't make everything negative. Negativity only causes more negativity. Try being positive.
That is a very convenient, very white thing to say.
This type of useless banter annoys me to no end. "I’ve seen police help blacks." Well, I’ve also seen them shoot unarmed black men my whole life. So what are you saying?
Like someone pointed out in a reblog comment, if the good cops don’t stop the bad cops, then they’re just as bad as them

"There are Negroes who will never fight for freedom.
There are Negroes who will seek profit for themselves alone from the struggle. There are even some Negroes who will cooperate with their oppressors. These facts should distress no one.
Every minority and every people has its share of opportunists, profiteers, free-loaders and escapists.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
