There have been videos of police killings involving unarmed blacks spanning males, females and even children but the brutal snuffing of life out of Floyd over an alleged counterfeit $20 bill ignited anger in the American people of various ethnic backgrounds not seen since the brutal 60s.
It is in the wake of all these activities that a group of white people have taken the knee and apologized to their black counterparts in a Houston, Texas ‘Praytest.’
The white leader of the group among others submitted “we ask for forgiveness from our black brothers for years and years of systemic racism, bigotry and hate.”
The state of constant fear of violence from white individuals or mobs has impacted gravely on the mental health of blacks putting them in increased survival mode.
Those marches, as Malcolm X argued, ought to have been human rights demands for blacks but ended up advancing the cause of women and gays, taking the thunder from blacks.
