As we await the grand jury decision in the unlawful chokehold and murder of 43 year old, Eric Garner in Staten Island, NY as well as the decision to formally charge the officer who shot and killed 18 year old, Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, we must remain vigilant in standing up and speaking out for justice. The stall tactics in both these cases are fueled by a desire to calm the masses and lessen the outrage of these horrendous crimes. Please understand that the struggle is real and it continues. Let’s not become weary nor complacent. These black men and so many others should not die in vain!
