Michael Donald (July 24, 1961 – March 21, 1981) was a young African-American man who was murdered in 1981 in Alabama by two KKK members. The arbitrary murder is sometimes referred to as the last recorded lynching in the United States because his two attackers hanged his body from a tree, in the pattern of mob lynching’s.
Fast Forward to now: not much of a difference: A MODERN DAY LYNCHING
9 Dead While attending Bible study and praying at a Black church in South Carolina. There are no words that can describe such a horrific act. People say that actions speak louder than words but what can you say when a man walks into a church and shoots 9 people dead.
Lets be honest with one another and do not try to sugarcoat this barbaric act. Racism is not something people are born with, this is something that is learned through life. Mental illness and hatred are not a reason for a young 21-year-old man to go into a church and shoot 9 people in cold blood.
We have serious issues in this Country that needs to be looked into. Mainstream media needs to stop looking for excuses or whom to blame, and our politician’s should not bring politics into any of these tragedies.
We are in the year 2015 and we still have racism, injustice, and inequality in this wonderful Country. We still have a culture that believes that anyone that is not of the white complexion is below them and of their standards. For most white pride fanatics their way of living is the correct way that America should be. It is easy for them to kill all minority. When people look back in history to June 2015 They are going to see the news of the people killed in the church and their probably going to say “wow it sure did take us a long time to get ourselves together.”
American’s have to realize that we do have a huge problem. The 9 people killed at the church where not looking for any hand outs, not looking to overtake the government, they where looking to praise the Lord, they where in Bible study. My heart goes out to their family. We all need to change our ways one way or another. We must learn from one another, embrace one another, change our ways. How many more people have to die? And for what? We all have to wake up every day and survive no matter what color, creed, or nationality we are.
