a story that didnt get a lot of national news & NO international news was the murder of another black young person by the hands of another scared white person..this time around the black person was a 5'4 inch 19 yr old young lady named reneisha mcbride..on nov 2nd ms.mcbride was in an accident & went to the home of 54 yr old theodore paul wafer who shot the young lady in the face on his porch in the early hours of that morning..ms. mcbride was unarmed & there were no signs of forced entry on mr.wafers home..according to him he feared she was "breaking in" & basically stepped outside shot her in the face & went back into his home to call the police..i know right!! yeah so anyway he wasnt charged until the 15th ..yes over 2 weeks later & in the mean time the only part of this story the media seemed to be interested in was that of her blood alcohol level which was in all honesty double the legal limit to drive..now take all of this in ok ..a 5'4 inch unarmed drunk woman was a threat to a sober man with a gun..yeah ha ha wheew....back in september of this year a young black man was shot & killed by police while seeking help after he was in an accident ..& no nothing happened to the officers that murdered that young man....so what have we learned here hmm? well if you are a black person & you get into an accident in a "white" area you may want to take your chances at not bleeding out & hoping an ambulance stumbles upon you strictly by chance rather than facing an almost assured death sentence by knocking on doors..the gun has replaced the noose but the sentiment is the same
.life for a person of color here in 1800s america is always rough & often times deadly ..
