When will we have the luxury of living while being black?

I'm trying to understand why is my skin color a crime and the terrorism of racist Caucasian men, women and the Klu Klux Klan Organization is not?

It is 2020 and being black and minding your business in America is still a crime and has been since slavery. My ancestors were beaten, lynched, ran over, tortured, raped, disfigured, babies fed to alligators, our ancestors displayed as animals in the zoo, displayed as sex objects and murdered as entertainment. 158 years after the emancipation of slavery our ancestors still couldn't enjoy the luxury of being free. Our ancestors still couldn't enjoy being free due to church bombings, experimenting on black soldiers, tearing down the Black Wall Street, and until this day in 2020 the African American human race is still been terrorized, hunted and killed for absolutely no reason other than being black. I'm trying to understand why is my skin color a crime and the terrorism of racist Caucasian men and women and Klu Klux Klan organization is not?

February 23, 2020 Ahmaud Arbery was jogging in a nice neighborhood and was gunned down by two racist Caucasian men. 64 year old Gregory McMichael and his 34 year old son Travis McMichael took the life of a young brother because they felt threatened believing he was a burglary suspect when there hadn't been any in their neighborhood. Now Ahmaud had no gun, no knife, no stick, no weapon what so ever on him at the time of his murder. There is footage that supports that Ahmaud was jogging minding his business when these two devils decided to terrorize, hunt, and kill Ahmaud for being black. He was only 25 years old.

Today May 7th 2020 Gregory and Travis McMichael were charged with murder and aggravated assault of Ahmaud Arbery. This probably wouldn't have happen if social media didn't share this story and start hashtags, signing petitions, and protesting for the immediate arrest. Before that they needed the grand jury to decide if these murderers should even be arrested which is a slap in the face to his family. How do you need a jury to decide if these two men should be charged for murder when clearly HE WAS MURDERED!

When will we have the luxury of living while black?

We shouldn't celebrate, we shouldn't be happy about an arrest that took 3 months and 37 days. We should still be outraged as fuck. How many times have we seen this happen? Trayvon Martin killer is still free, when we all know he was killed for minding his business. George Zimmerman who was found not guilty due to the stand your ground law in Florida. Sandra Bland who was arrested for failing to use her turn signal, was found dead in her cell from a "suicide" when we all know foul play was involved, Sandra was going to college and had too much to look forward to to take her own life. The State Trooper Brian Encinia who wrongfully arrested her was cleared of charges. Philando Castile was shot and killed in front of his girlfriend Diamond Reynolds and their young daughter during a traffic stop. The cop Jeronimo Yanez was found not guilty of second-degree manslaughter and two counts dangerous discharge of a firearm. With the background and knowledge of injustice of black people in America that has failed us over and over again why are we celebrating?

History repeats itself because we let it.

How many hashtags, protest, marches, and share this, sign this petition do we have to go through to see that the system doesn't give a fuck about us? This system was not written to protect us, it was written to terrorize, hunt and murder African American people. We can't keep doing this shit. Something bigger has to be done. We need laws passed to keep us alive which is a damn shame when we have been in this country for centuries and no other race of people needs laws to protect them because of the color of their skin. We are living in the same system that assassinated Martin Luther King Jr. We are living in the same system that kept Walter McMillian in prison for 6 years for a crime he didn't commit. The same system Central Park 5 that convicted young black boys of rape and they served time in prison. The same system that allowed Carolyn Bryant Donham to confess 65 years later she LIED about Emmett Till that caused him to be beaten, tortured and killed by while men and she is not in jail for perjury or something for making a false claim and causing a 14 year old boys murder? History repeats itself because we let it.

For 401 years black people have NOT had the luxury of not living in fear when we walk outside to live our lives. We have not been able to go one year without hearing about another black man or woman shot by the police or a complete stranger and being found not guilty for their actions. We have not had the luxury of not seeing a video or a hashtag of another black man or woman's murder. We have not had the luxury of rebuilding and having our own Black Wall Street, leaders looking out for our neighborhoods, not being an experimented on like a lab rats, and not being hunted while black. When will we have the luxury of living while black?
