    I loved your article, but I have a question. When you said “America is killing black people” did you mean white America, or all of America?

      I meant all of America. We’re all part of this anti-black culture. We’re all indoctrinated. We’re all brainwashed to think white is good and black is bad.

    This piece of art is so very touching. No mom could look at this and not feel the pain and deep sad helpless loss. I have seen Trayvon Martin’s mom on TV a few times and I am always acutely aware of her pain. Thanks for sharing your gift.

    Sincerely,

    Thank you for combining such powerful truthful art, with scholarly journalism that matches it’s power. As a white male I’m so sorry for my indifference. Your art and words have shown my heart that indifference, not working to continue to understand the immence pain and suffering of my fellow African American citizens is a horrible sin. This indifference is a dirty sin that the majority of Caucasian Americans are guilty of to different degrees. Myself and other Caucasian Americans I feel desperately need to recognize that their indifference is continuing the evil sins of the past, and in doing so being passive accomplice to that evil. We need to seek how to make reparations, we need to seek a goodness that overcompensates for those evils. The past can never be ‘put right’ but in the future, African Americans could be shows sincere care and empathy, a love to assure upliftment, dignity, and honor. African Americans in my view have always been the ones to show the possible magnitude of the human spirit, the true needle to the moral compass of our society, and for the world. God bless you. I won’t be indifferent, and I will help bring reparation, and goodness to the perspectives of others, for the future.

    This is a very touching piece that addresses an issue not to be forgotten. Unfortunately many a people black and white today appear to have little to no empathy for the past, and the crimes committed. They not living in the time and not experiencing the racism as it was – they just don’t relate to the matter. One thing they don’t realize, especially black people is that history repeats itself and not necessarily in the same exact way. Black people as well as some White are not being physically lynched from trees though what about the lynching of the mind that’s going on in this world today. What exist is Psychiatrist putting people on unnecessary Psychotropic Medication which removes the ability to think clearly and sharp. There’s a saying that goes somewhat like – you can cripple a man and take away his ability to walk though you can’t take away his education. With Psyche Meds you see Scholars or people with Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees that talk a good game though are not able to act upon what they’ve learned and actually utilize their degrees to benefit themselves and make a mark in society to benefit humanity as a whole. Some of the most intelligent are seduced into believing that a manmade artificial inhibitor will actually heal their ills. This is frightening and only part of Armageddon that has begun.
