There have been SEVEN black people hung from trees since the police murder of George Floyd. These were CLEAR TARGETED SYMBOLIC LYNCHINGS, ruled suicide by their respective police departments. Every single one of them.
I am 100% sure these are MURDERS, and should be investigated as such. These were calculated attacks, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure that out. Me, an average person, knows better. I know GOOD AND WELL the entirety of the United States - regardless of where you stand on racism - knows better than to believe a black man or woman would publicly lynch themselves as their preferred form of suicide. The disrespect on the black community is unreal. The lack of justice, and the nonchalance of those sworn to uphold the constitution for we the people, will no longer be tolerated.
This is a call to action for the federal government. Not only is it your DUTY as per the US constitution to step in, it is likely in your best interest, given the current world news.
I DEMAND justice for every single person wronged by a United States government employee starting at the town/city level. I EXPECT change for the coming generations of all races, but especially black and brown people. This is what WE WANT. This is what America NEEDS. These are not asks. These are orders from the people whom you work for, WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Have you forgotten where the power lies?
