The Verdict on Black Life
- jccarp, CNN iReport producer
The ugly truth being that as a black person, especially a dark skin black person, my life is not equal in value to a white person's life. My humanity is still a caricature in the public square of my own country. I am barely human.
The truth is I don't think this can change because the American legal system has deep flaws in it. Deep flaws that are there by design. How does one legislate truth, courage or love? Especially when the "legal" system does all it can to undermine every single one of those values.
Lately, America does not seem fond of truth, courage or love, not at home or aboard and that verdict on July 13th proved it.
