Perspective: Are You Running Free Or Are You Running Scared? (VIDEO)

03/12/2012 10:02 am 4 comments

There are two types of Black folks in America, those who run free and those who run scared. How are you running? Are you afraid to speak up and share your perspective or are you afraid to say what is right in fear of retribution?

    Please, please listen.
    The tragic death of Trayvon Martin is just the tip of the iceberg!
    It is reported that since the Stand Your Ground law started being enforced, deaths using this law have tripled — many of the victims were UNARMED!
    There must be a complete analysis of Florida’s (and other states using a similar law) data as to stats on those killed — age, race, Armed/unarmed, body build, etc.!

    True and like how you call it. One problem with black folk of todays time, is the comfort level.
    Granted blacks now may very well be in nice houses with white friends, however it still does not mean that you are immune to racism and racial profiles. If anything people should challenge their white friends comfort level. Hopefully they end result can be more mutual understanding.
