...I'm sure this won't get many "likes" because it is a horrible thing they did to this child so long ago. The racism in this country hasn't gotten much better and that is the horrible piece of knowledge we need to recognize. As these things get into the news more and more hopefully it will begin to change. But it takes people sharing this knowledge. Sadly there was another person who stood by and watched this boy be murdered and sadly, it was probably a white man who did it letting the racism take hold as white people probably cheered that they got rid of another black kid. This needed to be posted here to remind us how cruel we can be to other people on many levels. People who don't believe our faith. People who want to decide abortions for others. People who spread hate because of sexual preference. It's nauseating.
