When will Black America declare enough is enough?

Black folks have worked, marched and fought over four centuries for a true equality that in 2013 still eludes us--and not for a lack of sincere efforts by activists in civil rights, business and education that continue trying to fully assimilate and integrate Blacks into American society.

Yet, despite continued appeals to politicians on every level of government to enforce fair policies and laws, pleas to multi-million dollar corporations for jobs or holding out of a renewed hope those in power will have a change of heart and level the playing field, injustices plaguing Blacks in America continue.

“Essentially, George Zimmerman’s defense is, I saw a young Black man. I decided he was a criminal. I followed him, confronted him. And I shot him. What’s the problem?”
The Zimmerman self-defense claim is a fig leaf because he stalked and confronted Trayvon Martin, Mr. Dix said, echoing sentiments shared by many in daily social media posts about the nationally televised trial.
