Jordan Davis and his friends were listening to loud music in their car. These are teenagers enjoying their music. Sure, the music may not have been to everyone’s liking but they had the right to live. That sounds absurd to me that I am writing about music and death of a teen at the same time!
Again, in Florida, a white man (Michael Dunn, 45 years old) took his gun and decided that he had every right to shoot at black youths. He shot at their car eight (8) times and two (2) bullets hit Jordan Davis and killed him. Jordan was 17 years old. Why did this man think that he had that right? Why did he think it was his business to stop these kids and tell them what to do? Why did he think that he had the right to pull out his gun and shoot at people who did nothing against him? These kids were in their car…they never got out of the car, yet he had the nerve to say that he felt threatened because he supposedly saw a shotgun? Then, call the police, don’t just start shooting at people because you feel like it. Why shoot at these kids, God’s children, eight times and then run like a coward? Now, he wants to hide behind Florida’s deadly “Stand Your Ground Law.” Imagine if this were a black man who had done the shooting of white youths while they listened to their music? Would their be a national outrage? You could bet on it!
This is absolutely disgusting and inhumane. It is outrageous and absolutely unfair! Worst of all, the killer left the scene of the crime and drove off close to 200 miles away. There are reports that he was under the influence of alcohol?
This is another example of how worthless the life of a black youth is in America. This incident, the Trayvon Martin incident, and many others like it illustrate a deep and growing cancer in America towards the black youths.
Everyone should say “No more! No more! Enough is enough! Blacks, whites, Hispanics, Indians and all people need to say “Enough is enough! This is an American problem. Too many sit quietly and ignore this issue as if it is so isolated and it is not! Kids are being victimized and there is not an outrage…all people with half a conscience should be outraged and say “No more!” Where is the compassion? True compassion should never have a “color.” If you are compassionate, you will have compassion for “your kind” and others as well.
