“Everything now, we must assume, is in our hands; we have no right to assume otherwise. If we do not falter in our duty now, we may be able, handful that we are, to end the racial nightmare, and achieve our country, and change the history of the world.” James Baldwin
Oprah would love to talk to Zimmerman?
It’s One Month and three days
are waiting for an arrest
in the murder of
people are gathering,
they are standing,
they are raising their voices,
Oprah has weighed in.
No she hasn’t called me yet!
But she has now spoken about the Trayvon Martin case.
She has now said that she herself told Rosie it is over for Rose,
she has now said that Bobbi Kristina disappeared before the big interview
she wasn’t sure she would be there when Oprah arrived,
but she was indeed found by Oprah’s peeps and was there, but did not want to sit down,
so they stood and Oprah went with it to get the interview…
But now she has weighed in.
She has let folks know in an interview
a killer is tops on her list to interview
“I would love to interview zimmerman”.
YOU would pay, or give props and attention
to the man who self appointed chose to
be the “neighborhood watch”
or shall I say
He is top on your list,
the same guy that we all want to see brought to justice, for the murder of a 17 year old.
TRAYVON MARTIN’S MURDERER
really Oprah, you want to bring him on your show while we are wanting him booked, arrested and justice to be served?
ok maybe i am being reactive,
Banging my head on the wall now.
We are all people of color,
WHITE IS A COLOR,
RED IS A COLOR
BLACK IS A COLOR
YELLOW IS A COLOR
what is the problem here?
The man who called the Sanford PD
and said he saw someone suspicious,
then was told to not pursue the person,
yet he did.
And then he shot and killed at point blank range a 17 year old kid
in a hoodie, with a cellphone, a bag of skittles, and an Arizona Tea
as he cried to his girlfriend
Oprah is wanting to interview this person
has him top on her list?
One thing is certain,
as I sat and looked over the city
I was reminded of its intensity, its spendor, its diversity.
And I miss so much of it
now am enjoying being back here and seeing my beloved friends and the movement.
There is so much happening now,
with health care
so many who are standing,
letting the world and justice
we the People are standing for justice.
“We shall overcome”
we have come a long long way.
Hatred and racism
do not belong in our world today,
violence has no place in our worlds
and the lives of our children.
I have to tell ya,
this story is about as disgusting as it gets,
the web is dirty and it just keeps taking a new spin and with each spin a new attempt to create a lie… or to discredit a teen age boy.
Now once again,
it is becoming about the
political “left/right/” whatver that has to do with anything
but it is ugly
I have a feeling it is becoming more so by the hour.
The stories are being used to avert our attention to the horrid crime that was commited
and the mishandling of a murderer
that still walks free.
we’ve come a long way in civil rights,
and this tragedy is proof that there is evil
on the streets
and within gated neighborhoods.
We all walk with a responsibilty to educate our children,
to stand with honor, dignity, we have responsibility for our behaviors,
with ethics in our daily lives.
WE ALL BLEED RED.
We are each our brothers/sisters keeper, like it or not.
Race is something that people should run,
not something that qualifies one to kill, harm, or mame
Many are using this tragedy, and now this injustice
as their own platform,
through political doings and agenda building,
in police slinging and one up manship.
This was a tragedy, a sickening and unimaginable tragedy;
it is a crime that has yet to be handled
justice has yet to be served.
The media is not helping,
nor are those who are tweeting the addresses of people who are now in harms way
as a result of tweets
and then re-tweeted to millions
who will ultimately try to take the next crazy steps.
Further harm is about to be done,
innocent people will be hurt as a result of passion, emotion and misdirected anger
and things that are spinning out of control.
yet a murderer is safely hiding out somewhere with his pals.
People around the world are asking, writing, demanding
We have rallies happening across the lands, on campuses, Universities, faith communites, Capital Hill, the White House.
are standing arm in arm, together
with one vision, mission and purpose
for the most part.
We must be careful in wordings, in the call to actions that we are inclusive
in the desired outcomes.
We stand for justice
for a child who was murdered.
For the family
Sybrina and Tracy
the parents of
in their demand for justice.
To do that
we must stand together.
With respect and Unity.
Rallies cannot be effective nor the message be held as authentic or without racism
further indicated when an announcement reads:
STAND UP FOR JUSTICE
RALLY IN WASHINGTON DC
CALLING ALL BLACK PEOPLE
That is a powerful call to action,
it is a message that is in direct opposition to what we all stand for,
it is exclusive
it is a further message to confuse our children
and adults alike
when we are standing together
and let the world know
in order to
STAND for Justice together UNITED.
If we segregate our rallies
with our calls to gather
what message are we giving our children, their friends, our neighbors, our spouses, our relations?
If we cannot come together in our quest for justice for Trayvon Martin
how can we expect to teach our children
how can we embrace each other at all
in the greater circle of our lives?
We are stronger together
than we will ever be apart.
WE MUST STAND.
I’ve been saying this for weeks now,
through tears, through angst,
through and by listening to all who are weighing in and now those who are spinning webs of deceit and heartache to the family of this youth,
and listening as well to the children
who are also hearing all of this.
The questions of kids are many,
does not change the reality.
and the reality is
a child was killed by the willful act of an adult
who was told by the police to not pursue him.
But he did.
And then, maybe he beat himself up afterwards
But we need our children and adults alike to be safe
when they are not in our homes.
We need folks safe in their homes
without someone giving out their addresses
to others Spike what were you thinking when putting those folks in harms way.
bless our children,
bless the parents of
and hold them closely in thought and prayers.
all colors, shapes and sizes
some in hoodies, some without
all just out there.
It is time to stand UNITED
is just that…
do not harm.
And now O has weighed in
of all the folks in the world to talk to,
all the real people to interview
she wants to interview
this guy who killed a kid.
oh yes, Olivia now calls him a
I wouldn’t want to interview or give him time
for all the cherry blossoms in DC.
I would like to interview some kids though to get their take on this,
their view on how people are feeling, thinking
I also value yours.
Walk in Beauty,
oh yes, Oprah also commented about the Bobbi Kristina interview… wonder if she read what I had to say about standing in the hallway since she spoke to that as well?
I’m still waiting for you Oprah!
It is ironic how you spoke to all the things I talked about in the
“where are you Oprah” you tube!!!
“I’m still waiting for you Oprah…”
