Guys, tomorrow is Black Out day

March 6th

No matter your race, let’s show unwavering solidarity with our black brothers and sisters.

Then, every day after the black out.
Don’t let this be a passing trend.

This is about the sanctity of life and how black lives matter.

Be consistent, tear down any ignorances you have by educating yourself and KEEP ACTIVE.

While being active in this context of human rights, REMEMBER THAT YOUR INVOLVEMENT DOES NOT WARRANT IMMEDIATE GRATITUDE, PRAISE, OR ATTENTION.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT US.

So please, (white people including myself) keep consistent in your thoughts, words, actions with the same passion you had for March 6th, Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, and Ferguson protests relayed to us on this site AFTER March 6th.

Otherwise, you are a hypocrite demoting black lives as a popular activist tend.
Don’t do that.

Black lives matter.

Yesterday my English teacher told me, “If Trayvon Martin wasn’t wearing a hood maybe he would still be alive.” I could see everyone in my class turn their heads with rage. I managed in a shaking voice to say, “Well we wouldn’t know because he was a black man walking at night. He was harmless. The hood was a justification for racism and was not the reason he was shot. He was shot because he was black, something you fail to acknowledge.”

On February 26th 2012, George Zimmerman stalked 17-year-old Trayvon Martin through a gated community in Sanford, Florida, and then shot him through the heart. Earlier this week, the U.S. Department of Justice declined to file civil rights charges against the killer, two years after a state court acquitted him of murder. These are the lessons we learned in between.

Two of the people above were demonized by the media as “disrespectful thugs” for taking pictures with their middle fingers up, somehow these photos were used against the two to discredit their character and insinuate they deserved to be shot dead in the street by racist men. Can you guess which of the following two I speak of?

Trayvon Martin,
Michael Brown,
Former President George W. Bush,
Jennifer Lawrence,
Lady Gaga,
Joan Rivers,
Justin Timberlake,
Johnny Cash,
Mr. Rogers.

George Zimmerman, who was acquitted in 2013 of shooting and killing unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, won’t be able to stand his ground for a while. He was arrested late Friday night on charges of aggravated assault and domestic violence with a weapon, reports CNN. The 31-year-old Zimmerman was arrested by the Lake Mary Police Department at 10:10 p.m., according to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility’s website.

Zimmerman appeared in court Saturday morning and a $5,000 bond was set. Judge John Galluzzo gave Zimmerman until Tuesday to surrender his firearms and said he must appear in court by mid-February, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

This only marks the latest in a string of arrests and troubles with the law since the Martin case. Zimmerman had previously been arrested on claims of aggravated assault and domestic violence battery and criminal mischief. His girlfriend then asked the charges to be dropped. In September 2014, a man claimed Zimmerman threatened to kill him during a road rage incident. He refused to press charges.

Racist, violent, career criminal George Zimmerman continues to terrorize his community. He was arrested again Friday night on ANOTHER domestic violence and aggravated assault charge. Will Zimmerman have to murder again for him to be brought to justice? Trayvon Martin’s life clearly wasn’t enough, nor was the woman who accused him of molesting her for 10 years— will it take the death of his girlfriend or another to recognize him for the deadly thug that he is? Praying this charge sticks, otherwise I’m certain this man will kill again. #staywoke #farfromover
