A black man had dinner at a strip mall and stood outside the restaurant waiting for his ride home when a White security guard attached him causing injury. The Black Man had baggy clothes, a hoodie , a cell phone and a blind man's cane. The police ruled that the assault by the security guard was justified.
From the chains of slavery Black Americans have endured the harsh realities of racism and discrimination to become an integral part of the American Empire. Black Americans have used their sweat to build mighty structures, made significant advances in medicine, the arts, education, sports and many other notable professions. It is fitting that all Americans celebrate the achievements of Black Americans, not only this month, but every month.
