JURY OF YOUR PEERS

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Trevor Noah isn’t an American.

Trevor (born 20 February 1984) is a South African television and radio host, and comedian, known for his role as host of The Daily Show on American network Comedy Central since September 2015.

He is a Black man … he knows how this feels.  

America should be ashamed but then again, there is so much to be ashamed for, that this is only a small drop in a huge bucket.

Sad!!

On Wednesday night’s episode, June 21, of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah devoted the second half of his monologue to his devastation after seeing the just-released dash-cam video footage of the Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop last year.

Last week, the officer was acquitted on all charges, including manslaughter.

Philando

I won’t lie to you.

When I watched this video, it broke me.

It just – it broke me. You see so many of these videos, and you start to get numb, but this one? Seeing the child, that little girl, getting out of the car, after watching a man get killed, it broke my heart into little pieces.

Like, I thought of every joke people make about “Oh, the most confusing day in the hood is Father’s Day”:

“People don’t know where their parents are, ha-ha. Black dads.” That’s a black dad that’s gone.

That’s a child that grows up not knowing what it’s like to have somebody in their life.

It’s one thing to have the system against you – the district attorneys, the police unions, the courts – that’s one thing. But when a jury of your peers, your community, sees this evidence and decides that even this is self-defense, that is truly depressing. Because what they’re basically saying is in America, it is officially reasonable to be afraid of a person just because they are black.

And that’s the truth of what we saw with this verdict.

SIR

~~July 7, 2016~~ 

SECOND OF TWO

I haven’t been able to blog today.

As I said before, I have no words.

I can’t forget two Negro men who were killed in the light of day, with witnesses around, with the police cameras and civilian cell phones.

Social media is exploding with information about these events which occurred back to back in different cities.

The perfect words.

They are not mine.

I need to share.

“SIR”

POWERFUL STATEMENT

by Ricardo Neftali Arroyo

She had to call the officer who just murdered her boyfriend “Sir“.

She had to comply with every order made by every officer who showed up to the scene of her loved ones death with “Yes Sir“.

Every officer who barked orders, who put her in cuffs rather than console her. Who put her and her beautiful black child in the rear of a squad car, to mourn Philando Castile as he spent his last moments alone, in agony, dying in his car.

She had to do that because she understood innately. As all people of color who have grown up in America, that your chances of survival increase if you show deference to those who oppress you.

She called that murderer “Sir“. Because her very existence relied on compliance with her oppression above all else.

The same compliance killed Philando Castile. He gave every reason he could for his continued existence. But officers in America do not need a single one to be your judge, jury and executioner.

That’s the difference between state sanctioned violence and violence between civilians for those of you that still seek to deflect from the issue.

For those that seek to justify state sanctioned violence on black bodies. I pity the parts of your brokenness that keep you from loving your brothers and sisters as you should. That enable the systematic oppression that kills men, women and children.

Last night I was readying myself for sleep when I saw the Philando Castile video. Live. As it was occurring. And I wept. I was haunted by that video all night for so many reasons. But that “Sir” cut in so many ways that I struggle to give voice to them all.

My heart is unbelievably heavy as I go through today. For so many people who feel the same way know that I love you. That I’d rather reflect on that love of you then the anger at those who oppress us.
I love your resolve in the face of oppression.

I love your strength as you push through your weariness.

I love your blackness and brownness.

Please take care of yourselves. Sometimes that act of self love is the most revolutionary thing you can do.
