Don’t Let Black Children Play With Toy Guns

tamirBlack Mothers And Grandmothers: Don’t Let Black Children Play With Toy Guns | ThinkProgress.

A police officer murders a 12 year old and the solution is NOT TO LET YOUR CHILDREN PLAY WITH TOY GUNS? NO!

Stop being so accepting of stuff you know is wrong. Stop believing that changing your behavior will change their behavior. It won’t. It never has. It never will.

Dr. King’s basic message was do what is right. Do it over and over and over again. Do it until those that oppress you realize that you aren’t going to stop. Do it early and often. Declare your intention to keep doing it. Do it when they murder your children, your parents, your brothers, your sisters, your spouses. Do it even if it costs you your life.

Social change in the United States has only ever come with bloodstained hands. This time is no difference. More children will die. More unarmed men will be murdered. More riots will happen. More buildings and cars will burn.

More . More. More.

Then change will come.

Welcome to America.
