Color Matters For Me

I see people for who they are, their color their character and all. I strongly feel that since I don’t know how it is to be white and they don’t know how it is to be black that can be a problem. If a white person can not see me for whom I am a black man, then history can repeat itself.

It appears the white boy that killed the black folks in the church had a problem with black folks but he didn’t see the whole person because why didn’t he go to Florida, Ferguson, Baltimore and/or places where black folks whom were identified as thugs protesting where they would probably had killed his ass on the spot. He picked out a certain group of black folks.

I ain’t into the color blind thing because there are too many folks whom are not.

Dylann Roof, the man accused of a shooting spree that left nine people dead at a historic black church in Charleston on Wednesday night, should not have been able to get a gun.

Federal law prohibits people with pending felony charges from obtaining firearms. In February, Roof was arrested and later charged with felony possession of Suboxone, a narcotic prescription drug. He was released, and  the case is pending.

Because of his criminal record, Roof would not have been able to buy a gun from a store. Federally licensed gun dealers are required to run background checks on gun purchasers, and Roof’s pending charges should have turned up as a red flag.

But Roof didn’t need to go to a dealership. According to his uncle, Roof received a .45-caliber pistol from his father in April for his birthday, Reuters reports. (Source: Read more)

His roommate, Dalton Tyler told ABC News Roof was “planning something like that for six months.” (Source: Read more)
