Ferguson is no longer a trending topic
Just wondering…if Darren Wilson’s support speaks more to our culture’s ADHD
in situations like this.
His supporters are steadily raising money and awareness while Mike Brown’s supporters have probably now moved on to bigger things like ice water challenges, Nicki Minaj’s video and Suge Knight getting shot again at VMA party. It’s not to say the world doesn’t continue to turn but I wonder do we get complacent and stop shouting because we give up? The media doesn’t seem interested anymore, and my Facebook is full of ice water challenges (and yes, its a good cause) but I haven’t seen anyone really call for justice for Mike Brown. And while last week, it covered the news, they seemed to have moved on and now Darren Wilson looks like he is more supported that the unarmed man he murdered.
And I find that pathetic and disgusting.
I thank Orlando Jones for his Bullet Bucket challenge because it was powerful and meaningful while other black celebrities that make money off of the very violent life style they want to claim Mike Brown would have had anyway, well those celebrities are oddly and chillingly silent.
I will not be distracted. I will not be deterred. Mike Brown was gunned down like an animal because he was predetermined to be a violent thug by very people who are meant to keep order.
I want us to focus back on this struggle because if not there will be another Mike Brown, and then another, and then another. And I refuse to let my sons be apart of that fearful group they are targeting.
