This is on us!

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” President John F. Kennedy -1962

How many times will it take?

How many people have to die to be heard?

This is on us.

It is on every police department making excuses instead of condemning it. It is on every officer who stood by and did not intervene. It is on every American who views the riots as the problem and not the cause of the riots!

What if, instead of standing down, the police attempted to disburse the toy soldiers armed to the teeth protesting at our state houses? Whose fault would it have been then?

Image may contain: 1 person, text that says 'But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, the same time, condemning the contingent,intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions get attention. And I must say tonight that riot the language of the unheard. Excerpt from "The Other America" March 14, 1968'
