Feminism has nothing to do with someone who is trained to be a police officer doing their job. These law enforcers are supposed to be held to a higher standard. They should know how to deescalate a situation without shooting any unarmed citizen. A woman should be able to hold any job a man can, for the same pay, and should not be subject to any abuse because she is a woman, but in that she should not have special treatment in a situation like the shooting of Terence Crutcher just because she is a woman.

Black people who were living peacefully did not burn down the neighborhoods of whites. They understood that all people working together is what made an economy work. Though they maybe should have been, blacks were not unduly threatened by whites enough to murder their families.

Black Wall Street in Tulsa was just one of the Black Main Streets — business districts that were part of thriving Black neighborhoods — throughout the country and especially the south. Integration as well as Big Box stores ended these demonstrations of Black success.

Yes Black and White people have equal rights in this country, but there is still much to be said about this nations history of and current oppression, stemming from slavery, which blacks in this nation must first rise above to succeed in the same way whites can.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
