Is Your Child Next?!

Jordan Davis

Yes, folks! It’s Wednesday, it’s Hump Day!

So much for me to contemplate . . . Yet, I continue being positive and putting my best foot forward each day, and today! While it is not easy, I can’t think of anything else I’d like to do that indicates that I am being the best that I can be. After all, this gift of life I’ve been given shall not be wasted. The moon is getting fuller each night as I look up into the star-lit skies of South Florida and I have to count my blessings . . . of freedom, of life, with the many friends and associates made along the way! I remember when I was 17 . . .

This trial of Michael Dunn, 42, in the accused murder of yet another black teen boy, and apparently attempted murder of 3 others, is coming to a close. You know, as a man – an African American one at that, I have to count my blessings each day that I live that my life has been blessed enough to allow me to wake up another morning. The killing of Jordan Davis, then 17, with probably the first bullet that entered the vehicle, has once again ignited the controversy of concealed weapons and a racially motivated shooting. It is always the same “card” that people play anytime “they” lose control and ultimately attack and/or murder a black man! “He said he was going to kill this mother “effing” cracker, and then he pointed a gun at me from inside the truck!” That’s what Jordan Davis is reported to have said and done by Dunn during the trial. Now, if you decide to buy this “cock and bull” story, you can understand why Dunn fired 10 shots, 9 of them entering the Durango that the teens sat in . . . and no gun was found inside.

So, by painting a picture of Jordan Davis and his friends who sat in the vehicle outside of a convenience store in Jacksonville, FL as cursing, threatening and loud music playing “black teen boys”, we can understand why Dunn tried to kill all of them! Really?!? Even Nancy Grace stated that Dunn should be found guilty on all charges without a hitch! Why is it necessary for people to invent stories to justify their behavior?! Why do young black boys have to worry about having fun together, no drugs no weapons, just some funky music playing in their vehicle on the streets of America?! I only hope that THIS time, justice is served! I don’t know about you, but I’ve had enough of these lying so-called “adults” blaming their violent, hostile … even racist behavior on youngsters who haven’t even had a chance at life yet!

Stay calm in stressful moments. And, if you have your gun, don’t take it out. Just drive away.

Thanks for your continued reading and support, folks!
