Racism in the Public Eye

Is the Police the Enemy?

Michael Brown was an unarmed teenage who was shot and killed in 2014 by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. The shooting created protests, and by the juries decision not to indite Mr.Wilson it only made the protest more violent. Shortly before the shooting Brown had been caught on surveillance stealing cigarillos, and Wilson positioned his SUV to block off running. Unfortunately he started to run because of his fear of officers I presume, Wilson shot at him. Wilson takes off on foot, Brown decides to stop and move toward Wilson, which made the officer fire more shots.

What This Could Lead To? & Why Do We Need Change?

The increasing hatred of caucasian police officers by African Americans can lead to more violence/protests. Another thing hatred can lead to people taking matters into their own hands without calling or asking for police help because of their beliefs.

We need change in order to some way have peace in the world. We shouldn't judge others because of race, we should look deeper and see what's on the inside.
