Why Black Americans Are Dying In The Company Of White Race...

AFRICANGLOBE - With the silent help of the US Federal Government, white supremacists police departments across the nation are simply murdering Black Americans for absolutely no law enforcement reason.

The Murder Of Philando Castile, Dead Cops, And Blowback

AFRICANGLOBE The reason we have a justice system is so people won't take the law into their own hands. But it appears that police are above justice. So what is the logical next step once you have the firm belief that the justice system can't be fixed or reformed? It's violence. So if this country in 2016 is unwilling to charge and convict police officers who murder Black citizens then it should prepare itself for more Micah Johnsons. There's only so much that people can take before they finally realize that they aren't the only ones who can bleed. Everybody bleeds.
