There’s been many social changes since The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s with the struggle for human equality but remains difficult 2 comprehend how another person can ever claim superiority over another.
Fast forward to 2016 where rights remain violated due to the color of a person’s skin, gender & faith.
This is why I see an importance of keeping this particular segment of history alive & brought to the forefront.
With the recent pulse of bold ignorance exhibited by insecure grumpy men young & old, the sacrifices of those before me who laid their lives on the line cannot & will not be dismissed.
Despite the dangers during that period, peaceful demonstration displayed the power of the human spirit & exposed the foul attitudes of those who oppose.
Regardless, heads remain high….
Sprayed with high powered water hoses, beaten with police batons, mauled by dogs, even killed clearly shows the true face of injustice that continues 2 this very day.
So ask yourself, are you part of the solution or part of the problem?
Why should we even have to explain such a basic life principle that should be considered common decency?
History has the tendency to repeat itself but is our responsibility 2 prevent such painful events from reoccurring.
So now is the time for all of us 2 do “betta” yall.
Here is the first installment of a series explaining the relevance of that time & what it means 2 be me.
Peace!…with 2 fingers;)
