Just like in Martin’s case, many of the people who have killed their fellow Black people will never be charged with a crime, or will be found by authorities. Why? Because of a culture on “no snitching” that has taken a stronghold on many of our communities. In other words, never “dime out” another Black person to authorities.
Like many of you, I hope that Martin’s killer is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. But I’ll be damned if I sit here and ignore the murders of hundreds of Black men and women every month in this country just because they were not shot by a White man.
