In 1968 the issues of police violence became one of the reason for the formation of the Black Panther Party. They came up with a 10 point plan and #7 in that plan was "We Want an Immediate End to Police Brutality and Murder of Black People."
Fifty-two years later ask yourself how much has changed?
I forget the name of the guy who had a license to drive legally but my brother and I were sitting on the back of the rear seat of his convertible Rambler, him on the left, me on the right and we had to throw the papers so they would land on the lawn or the porch. By the time the sun came up we would have finished our route and gone home.
Yet here we are, 52 years later and the Black Panther Plan #7 still remains unresolved. I don't have the answers but it may be something in their 10 point plan that needs to be tweaked 52 years later so there doesn't have to be a woman risking HER life to save the life of another human who happens to be black?
