I have seen many people today including African Americans, denouncing the protests/riots in Minneapolis especially the looting of the Target and while I am a proponent of non-violence it is rather difficult to expect that after centuries of oppression and the senseless killing of our people African Americans are expected to continue to peacefully march and sing we shall overcome.
We will overcome?
We already have overcome:
Our culture being stripped from us
The lost of our ancestral history
We are still battling
Socialinjustice but we have not let it destroy us as a people
Now is the time for America to overcome its
Racism and Bigotry
Only then will America truly be the country it gave lip service to when it was founded. One where all people are created equal.
Even the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. understood there was a time when a peaceful non-violent protest was not always going to bring about the necessary change.
