Honoring America’s ending of Slavery

All Americans must remember how America’s Memorial Day weekend honors military personnel. Many of those died for a country refusing not to uphold their civil rights guaranteed to White Americans.

America must remember why Muhammad Ali refused to fight in the Vietnam war when he could not sit at a Woolworths Counter in his hometown of Louisville, KY.

America must remember that on this day, six years ago today, June 17, the massacre of nine black worshippers who were killed during bible study by a white racist.

America must remember why entire school systems shut down, refusing to integrate.

America must remember that over three thousand African-Americans have been lynched.

America must remember the hundreds of thriving African-American communities burned and destroyed by racist terrorist mobs.

These events and thousands of others are detailed by the Equal Justice Initiative, a daily calendar revealing the systemic racial terrorist attacks against African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Indigenous people, and Jewish-Americans. When someone says, “Things are getting better,” please remind them of the repeated events of America’s past. At the same time, its government refused to acknowledge racial terrorism.

In a speech, U. S. Attorney General Merrick Garland stated. The top domestic violent extremist threats are racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists, specifically those who advocated for the superiority of the white race.”

Hopefully, the increased criminal investigations, analysis, and attention to racial terrorism will bring forth a new breed of White abolitionists against white supremacy’s terrorism and hate.

In our lifetime, exterminating racial terrorism and hatred is what Americans should strive towards. After all, the abolitionists were successful in their battle against slavery which was believed to be impossible.
