Dear White America: Its time to get the message

For decades now, black people have been trying to tell us white folks something. Here's how it looked in the 1960's:
With the advent of social media, the same message was communicated following the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin via the hashtag #HeIsNotASuspect.
Today, we're seeing black people doing their best to communicate the same thing via the hashtag #dangerousblackkids.



Hey white folks...its time to wake up and get the f*cking message!!!!!

  1. Martin Luther King Jr. used the Civil Rights marches and protests to make visible to whites what had been invisible to them - the indignities, injustices, and fear that black people lived with every day. He did that by contrasting the terrible violence directed at them with the non-violence of their response. I feel that these young men are unwitting martyrs whose terrible deaths will make visible the indignities, injustices, and fears that the black community still lives with every day. What is wrong with us that we don't see these things until they are painted in blood?
