‘A Suite For Souled People’ :: Real Talk From Willie Green


from the digital desktop of Willie Green:

“The recent events in Ferguson, Missouri (as well as Staten Island, Beavercreek, Ohio, and Los Angeles) have lifted a veil of comfortable ignorance across this country.  The murder of Michael Brown, resultant cover up and egregious treatment of protesters has shown that the perception of Black people in America has changed little since the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s.  Americans live in a country where the oppressed are dehumanized and told to be quiet and gracious about their anger; and where the oppressors are harbored by our government and rewarded by our peers.  Where the media warps facts to prove agendas against citizens and digital voices rush to play devil’s advocate to conceal their own bias.  These are terrifying statements and not exaggerations.  I’m no revolutionary.  But I am someone who wants to look his children in the eyes and say when his country showed its worst, he did something.”
