I have a message for peaceful marchers throughout the nation, Do It, its’ your first amendment right. Free speech is a constitutional right; however, destroying property, of any kind, is a crime. The honorable former Congressman John Lewis, who passed on July 17, 2020, said, “When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something.”
As you march and exercise your rights to bring about an end to racial injustice under the law, don’t allow yourselves to become unwittingly complicit in the criminal actions of white extremist groups. During a peaceful protest, these cowardly groups commit crimes while hiding in shadows without retribution. These feeble-minded hateful hugs intend to co-opt your mission to spread actual violence and to manifest disinformation.
There are many many different names used by hate groups in the United States and abroad; however, their actions, their spirit, and their souls are extremely wicked, sick, and inhumane. Authorities have identified hate groups AKA criminals gangs such as the so-called Proud Boys and the so-called Far-Right ‘Boogaloo Boys trying to Incite Violence at Peaceful Protests “In Plain Sight” of law enforcement officers. In most cases, they are allowed to commit crimes at peaceful protests with impurity!
On May 25, 2020, we, the global human family, were unfortunately forced to witness the horrendous 8-minutes and 46-second Minneapolis police slow killing of Mr. George Floyd. The gory details of Floyd”s murder penetrated the very souls of fair-minded people on every continent. The brutal nature of the murder of Mr. Floyd by a “Police Gang” woke up many Americans and, ultimately, changed the world.
Yes, the genie of waiting for racial changes is out, and we will not turn back. George Floyd is one of the latest of many black, brown, and indigenous men and women who have been murdered by the police. In most cases of when police kill Black Bodies, there is no transparency, no accountability, and hence, no justice.
The FBI definition of a Hate-Groups is “ criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity.” What Say You? Many times we know the names of the Hate Groups; now, we must expose the Identify of individual haters.
Mass peaceful protests are legitimate and justified strategies used to bring about change when so many calls for justice, accountability, and an end to systemic racism have fallen on deaf ears. I encourage Americans and others around the world to continue to step up and speak out and create a new paradigm that demands equity, racial justice, and realignment of our legal and social societies both nationally and globally.
We must be factually aware that extremists groups’ infiltrate peaceful protest for the sole purpose of inciting aggressive police action against blameless protesters. These groups’ egregious actions are very dangerous and, in the most extreme cases, will cause the loss of innocent lives. For America to be great a great nation, we must dismantle systemic racism at its’ roots.
On November 3, 2020, the United States voters will have another opportunity to get it right. This round includes elections for the president, legislators, governors, secretaries of state, attorney generals, district attorneys, mayors, city council members, school board members, and judges.
We must vote the “Full Ballot” and not allow a minority group of voters to become our deciders. This November, we must march ourselves to the voting booth and vote for politicians that will dismantle systemic racism at its’ roots. We must vote for someone who has demonstrated, through both their deeds and actions, that they will protect our interest and have already taken up residency on the right side of history.
