It is sad when any young person dies. But someone over at MSNBC thinks one segment of the community cannot relate to the concept of racism unless they are personally impacted.
What they don’t understand is as humans we have the amazing ability of feeling empathy for others when they go through hard times or feel loss.
So now we get more approximate to the truth of what race is in this country. As for Eric Holder, look: the reality is you gotta act now. The president, you won the second term. You’re in office. You are ensconced. Do something courageous, bold, and helpful. Not only to African American people but to America. Because unless we do this, white Americans and others will feel that this was a justifiable verdict, this is how things happen. Not until, and unless, the number of white kids die that approximate the numbers of black and other kids who die, will America see. It’s beyond logic. It’s about rationality. It’s about let’s get something done. I think the attorney general will look at this and I think it’s time for him to act.”
