It’s really amazing to see the energy and passion certain black people will put into “honoring” a dead white person but when it comes time to speak about or even post about the atrocities committed against their own people, all you get is silence. Like I scroll down some of my black friends pages and all over they have posts saying RIP Robin Williams or Joan rivers but won’t post shit about mike brown, John Crawford, and so many others. We suffer from such an inferiority complex that the life of a white person is more valuable than any black boy. The effects of slavery present itself everyday in Blacks folks. When shall we overcome?

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.
You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.
