“I’m sick of it!”
Those are the words of one black American who has had it with the race baiting of Rev. Al Sharpton and others who pontificate about racial injustice without ever doing anything to enact positive change.
Marching, rioting and looting, the man says, aren’t going to improve race relations in the U.S.
The epic rant is a response to the current civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, where police recently shot an unarmed black teenager.
“When are we going to overcome, when? That was fifty plus years ago and all we’re doing is going around in circles…” the man says.
“You activists out there, you civil rights leaders— all of a sudden Black Panthers, NAACP come out the woodwork… they just came out of nowhere, [saying] ‘Oh, we gonna want justice. We want justice. No justice, no peace’ that’s all you see ‘No justice no peace,’” the man continues. “Shut up.
“When it was sixty plus shootings in Chicago a few weeks back, where were you? Nowhere to be found. A few weeks later, there was forty-seven drive-bys in one weekend, where were you? Nowhere to be found. When little Ray Ray kills little Lukie, where were you? Nowhere to be found. When a little girl was shot when she was riding her tricycle in the front yard and stray bullets hit her, where were you? Nowhere to be found.”
The man contends that black Americans must do more to change their communities.
