I am ashamed

Screen Shot 2015-07-13 at 9.31.52 PM

I am ashamed that the police officer who lynched Eric Garner was not indicted. I am ashamed that Eric Garner’s life was not valued by the state who murdered him, by the police officers who mob-lynched him, by this sham democracy we call the U.S. that colludes with paramilitary “enforcement” to strip black Americans of their human rights. I am ashamed that this family must put a price tag on the life of their husband and son. I am offended and ashamed that we must all contribute to the collective damage we have done and the collective violence we have inflicted on our black brothers and sisters. I am just plain ashamed. ‪#‎blacklivesmatter‬
