A Blackout For Justice: TPC Stands In Solidarity With Martin Family During Verdict Watch

Every now and then people just become tired of the same old things, tired of wiping away tears , tired of burying their children over senseless violence, tired of being picked on, tired of being mistreated, and tired of watching our mothers cry. I may not be qualified to accurately convey a complete expression of the frustration which dwells deep within the spirit of my people, but I can definitely testify to the black experience of oppression, inhumane treatment, and injustice committed against people of color upon these shores. For, “Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.” These are the words which Frederick Douglass once spoke, and perhaps such rhetoric has never been more pronounced associated with the struggles of the Afro American Community until now.  The time has since long passed for nullification, palpable justification, and an antidote to sufficiently suppress the constant attack of racism, hatred, and the complete destruction of the entire black family by racist white Americans who diligently labor our demise.

When the frustrations within the black community boiled over during the mid 1950’s and a mass mobilization of our community developed into the Civil Rights Movement, many believed that it was sparked by a young woman name Rosa Parks who simply became tired of being picked on one day. However, that is one of the greatest myths of that entire era. The incident that was really the final straw which broke the camel’s back or should be credited for being the catalyst for change regarding the mistreatment of black people in the United States was the brutal slaying of Emmit Till, a 15-year-old boy from Chicago who was viciously beaten, shot in the head, and thrown in a Mississippi river. His mother’s courageous advocacy to have his funeral with an open casket brought home the horrors of the sickening, barbaric, and pervasive reality of racist white brutality, in the minds of many Black Americans.

I am sure I speak for all people of color when I convey a basic principle harbored in the minds of parents who readily concede, “you can do whatever you want to me, but don’t harm my child.” The bold, unmercifulness, and savage attack upon a black child predicate solely on race will always spurn emotion, proactiveness, and direct conflict in an unprecedented fashion almost every time. When a black child is no longer able to simply walk to a local business in their community to buy snacks and something to drink without being killed for no other provocation other than somebody might deem him/her as being suspicious, and can be killed without impunity, it’s clear that an immediate course of corrective action must swiftly manifest itself.  If the U.S. Criminal Justice System fails to protect black babies from the violence of racist hate simply because killers from a  privileged economic class can afford a good attorney, then the black community should no longer stand by idle and permit such practices to remain the order of the day.

Therefor, the killing of Trayvon Martin must not be allowed to fall between the cracks of America’s apathy toward the injustice directed toward black people in this country. Now is not the time for petty divisiveness, more violence, senseless rioting, and other unnecessary behavior which may result in further killing of our children. An intelligent, strategic, and relentless mass mobilization within the African American Community must occur. The projected acquittal of George Zimmerman will prove to be a new policy on race in this country, where racist people will have a license to kill black children indiscriminately while clinging to some sort of superficial apprehensive fear or bogus self defense claim. We must not allow such a practice to take form again in this country.

I implore you all to stand in solidarity with the parents of Trayvon Martin during this dark hour, and support the Trayvon Martin Blackout Movement by promoting an all black image or other suitable pictures on your social media profiles until justice is obtained for this slain youth and his grieving family. We must continue to be vigilant during this verdict watch. Rise up black people and aid in the efforts to save our black babies. Justice must prevail for Trayvon Martin or there should be no peace in America.
