Just over 14 months ago I expressed the hope that the events that led up to Ferguson would be a turning point in racial relationships and dialog in America.
That was really naive of me, the status quo will never willingly change.
I got a good education yesterday from the supercilious experts on facebook. Just like everything else, caring about your fellow man has become highly politicized. If you express concern for another human being you're a liberal. I thought caring just made me a decent human being.
Someone even posted a study showing African-Americans were less likely to be shot than whites. This is where we are now, rationalizing the murder of black men. Not that we haven't all been victim blaming for years.
Black lives right now in America absolutely do not matter.
And that is a damn shame.
