The incident provoked immediate anger and frustration within me. How can I be safe if the police who suppose to serve and protect me are slowly killing the African Americans. So how can I feel safe now?

Mike Brown murder is Americas way of Restating how much they hate and have no value for Black people!
Michael C. James II, 21 Years Old
The situation involing Michael Brown is nothing new. I recently watched a interview with Malcom X, where he stated in 1962 seven unarmed black men where shot down in middle of the day because the public viewed them as a threat to society. My race is slowly becoming extinct because of the system we are forced to live in. The people in power want to stay in power and don’t want us to realize our true potential so they use the system to provoke violence within ourselves and force military restraints.

Another black man killed just reinforces the ideal that black are not protected under the United States legal system and appear to be the target of violence.
Cortni Pace, 20 Years Old
I feel as though is not right for someone to take the life of an unarmed person regardless of race, religion, etc. In my honest opinion the only reason the situation isn’t being praised how it should is because the individual is a black male. Society as a whole has no respect for black males and that shows in the case. No one should lose their life that way, especially a young black male.

Right is Right. Wrong is Wrong. This situation is deeper than it is. I have done many researches on this country and how it builds up. The issue is not just race its also within our family. We are brainwashed into thinking less of a human being compared to another of different colors. We as Africans need to learn that we build this country and we are more than what the media, people, school, etc. portray us to be. Yes Race is a factor and the whites (Who are in control and has the Power) are afraid to accept their faults and that’s a problem.
