The United States of America continues to dehumanize Black lives.
Racism & the multi-faceted trauma of slavery didn’t evaporate with a proclamation.
“America is not a racist country” is an impediment to Truth, Love and Justice.

A viral circulated clip shows two officers pointing their guns at Jacob while grabbing his shirt and then releasing multiple shoots into his body as he attempts to get in his car.
“What justified all those shots? What justified doing that in front my grandsons? What are we doing?” asks Blake Sr.
It has been indicated that Jacob’s children were in the car and witnessed the unjustified incident.
“ I want to put my hand on my son’s cheek and kiss him in the forehead, and then I’ll be ok. I’ll kiss him with my mask. The first thing I want to do is touch my son,” states Blake Sr.
