    I have seen the struggle of my black brothers and sisters; and even as a teen in the 1950's and 1960's Ispoke out against what I saw was wrong; but my friend violence only begats violence and just ads fuel to the fire.We need brave men and women of all races, creeds, and faiths to band together against those no matter then race, cree, or faith in constructive and meaninful solutions.As Abraham Lincoln said, "A House divided against itselfe cannot stand."There is a under current moving across this land to divide and not to come together for healing and reconcilliation.We all in many ways have suffered from discimination.My ancestors were little better than slaves-they worked on another man's land,could not vote because they could not read or write; and women had no rights; but they loved their families and change happened; slowly but it is still happening and to turn back now will only end in total destruction for all that are concerned. We need to work for a better world for the young.

    It is sad to be seeing it as a black or white thing because there are all kinds of injustice in the world, but I understand and I agree. Even Malcomb X changed his radical views towards the end of his life. It is all a learning experience, mistakes are how we all learn and grow. If there were no mistakes we would all stagnate and no growth at all would be possible, we'd keep making the same mistakes over and over. And some are further along on the path than others. Im not condoning killing but maybe that killing was actually the thing that turned that prejudiced person life around from all the pressure they got form the public and in jail. Life has a funny way of working those kinds of things out for itself. Do not send more anger to the instance but more love and prayer for understanding, patience and peace. ...and allowing for differences.

    Ah, yes...the "Black Man" being accused of crimes he didn't commit. First, noe of the deathe you mentioned didn't have to happen, and police officers need to be held accountable for their actions. But...news flash...WHITE men and women also get accuse of crimes they didn't commit. Do you get angry or call for justice when THAT happens? I didn't think so. That makes you no better than those who commit crimes out of racial prejudice, as you're implying.
