Yet, in the wake of five protestors being shot while peacefully protesting the death of Jamar Clark near the Fourth Precinct police station in Minneapolis, it is once again revealed that the most longstanding and deadly terrorist groups in America have always operated under the banner of white supremacy.
I wanted to write about hope today, but I am angry and it appears I have struck a nerve in your hateful heart. On Monday night, five peaceful protesters in Minnesota were shot at a Black Lives Matter protest. Police are looking for three white supremacists who were taunting the crowd as they opened fire. Was it you?
Being that Atticus Finch doesn't require that we attend white supremacy meetings, support police brutality or poison our own children with hate. It merely requires that we maintain our innocence amidst the maw of institutionalized racism, and mask our complicity in that system via periodic outrages at current events that clash with the saintly pictures we have painted of ourselves.
