    • Thank you Katie for your post. I really agree with you and your connection to our current administration in Washington. Keep writing your opinions!

  • I’m so glad you enjoyed this article and could agree with it. This world needs more people like you that understand human rights.

  • I’m very sorry to hear about your uncle. That must have been very traumatic. These issues need to be fixed as as soon as possible. But now with Trump as president it will be tough. I’m glad you enjoyed this. Thank you 🙂

    Katie commented on the post, Drugs.

    I have family members that dealt with drugs and had no one to help them. With no adult support it may be hard to overcome this problem

    • Dear Katie,
      I really enjoyed reading your post I can tell through your writing how passionate you are about the subject. I have the same fear and am unable to understand the situation the same as you. I am glad you provided the example involving the 17 year old Black Panther Protestor, I had not heard about the incident but I can defiantly relate to the situation. About four years ago my uncle got arrested he was already on the ground when it happened but the police still felt the need to shoot him twice and kick him to the point of breaking his ribs. Thankfully he recovered but there are so many instances where African Americans especially males are not even given a chance to explain themselves they are automatically seen as threat and police without second guessing fee the need to use force. I also love that you added satisfies it shows how bad this problem has gotten for monorities and African Americans in particular. I am very greatful I was able to read your post and relate on so many levels being that I am African American myself, thank you so much.
