Does it Only Matter When it’s a Black Being Killed by a Non-Black???


From The Last Civil Right(by Kuuleme Stephens)

I am finding it hard to come to terms with the hypocrisy that has come to light in recent events. 28y/o George Zimmerman (who is of mixed heritage) stands accused of 2nd Degree Murder and faces life in prison for the shooting of 17y/o Black Youth,Trayvon Martin. The trial has recently started in this case, yet people all over social media feel the need to make it a race issue and convict in the Court of Opinion. Al Sharpton hit the stage early in this case making one of his famous race-baiting speeches, and Obama had to jump on board as well with his speech of “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon” speech. Even the racist New Black Panther Party came out with their talk of racist hatred and put a 10,000 bounty on George Zimmerman’s head, and Director Spike Lee tweeted what he thought was Zimmerman’s address (which turned out to be the wrong address leaving an elderly couple concerned for their safety) to add to the racial fire. Even Facebook has allowed FB Pages and Groups to be posted on their websites refusing to remove them which violates their own Community Standards….

Whatever happened to “innocent until proven guilty” in this country? And does race only matter when it is a Black person being killed by a non-Black, or in Zimmerman’s case, someone with less Black blood in their heritage???

This topic really hits close to home for me, as my husband’s cousin, Ross Shreves, was recently murdered in Arlington, Texas on Monday June 10th of this year.

Ross was a seventh-grade writing and eighth-grade English at Kennedale Junior High, he sponsor the Student Counsel, and he was an incredible Power Lifter and a member of the Strength and Stone Power-lifters. It was his second year teaching at the school. He can be seen in the picture (in the second row for the bottom in the middle) on their Facebook Page. He was loved by all of his family, friends, fellow staff, students and it took everyone by surprise with the news of his death.

 

It didn’t take long for the Arlington Police to make an arrest in our cousin’s case. The Dallas Morning News was one of the Texas News Outlets to report on the arrest that had been made on their website as did My Fox DFW. The Arlington Police were quick to issue an Arrest Warrant and took 27y/o Black Male, Patrick Jardell Brooks, into custody. He is now being held on a measly 100,000 dollar bond in theTarrant County Jail.
