So my facebook friend just posted this pic with this text….Well, I just witnessed blatant racial injustice with my own eyes. I was getting in my car after exiting a store when a young black man stumbled past me and collapsed against the store wall. When I got out to see if he was okay, a group of white people came rushing over, one of whom was a 20-something white woman who declared in distress, “I ran a red light and hit him with my car!” People immediately assured her that SHE would be okay, meanwhile the young man is writhing in pain on the ground, pants leg torn, tears running down his face. When the police arrived and the young woman explained what happened, it was suggested to her that maybe the light had been yellow and that the young man had “darted out into the street into her path.” I was floored. I said, “But she just SAID she ran the red light and hit him in the intersection!”
I don’t like to believe all that I read on the web. So for the sake of humanity, I hope this is not true.

Tell me about a time where a white child was killed and black people made a hashtag mocking their death, a Halloween costume mocking their death, or a celebration of their death in any way shape or from. NEVER!!
Black pride has never been about hating white people, but white supremacy has always been about hating black people.

Oh my god
This is my confusion. I mean I genuinely need to understand….
Why does he need a fund? I know people are ignorant, racist, among many other things…..but if he’s on paid leave why are people “donating” to his cause.
To my knowledge they are not pressing charges which means he doesn’t need to cover legal fees, he left the city which means his bills are irrelevant….so I don’t understand.
That’s his reward money for murdering a Black child. The people who donated are specifically happy that he killed a Black child. Had he killed Sparky the dog then he would have been in trouble.
