  1. Sickening. And unfortunately, this won’t be the last.

    • But we must work hard to stop this. I really doubt a white child would have suffered this. I remember the American boy of Indian descent who was arrested because he build a clock and took it to school as a project. We must fight this bigotry . If we can not for these children, how can we live with ourselves? Hugs

  2. What’s worse is how many people have the immediate response of saying “oh, this rarely happens, anyway” because for them, one time is not one time too many, at least, not for a Black child.

      • Posting does help boost awareness, but the best way to stop it is to ensure we don’t live by these same prejudices in our everyday life. It’s always easy to point fingers, until we must point them at ourselves.

        Have a great week!

  3. If you do not see the in other person a reflection of oneself, you are denying that person their humanity. It is the genisus of bigotry and the seed of prejudice. Scottie, keep hammering on the magnificent blog of yours.

  4. Black is a faceless colour, they all look the same.Right? White paranoia obliterates common sense, justice, tempered reason, restraint, probability, evidence and unbiased perspective. Shame on anyone who shrugs off the enormity of a 10 year old boy in cuffs because his skin is black.
