Ricky L. Jones in his recent article reminded Americans that being Black and brave in America has costs. It always has always been the case.
Recently, friends and family gathered in Louisville, Kentucky, to bury yet another person who consistently participated in protests prompted by the death of Breonna Taylor in 2020. This time the deceased was Chris Wells, who was found dead in his apartment apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Wells was 33.
Wells was the latest in a sad number of protesters around the country who have died from suicide or under suspicious circumstances in recent years. Like many before them, these everyday people participated in still-needed protest movements in hopes of forcing America to bridge the yawning gap between its actions and ideals of freedom, liberty, and justice for all. Unfortunately, the racial socio-political power dynamics have not changed in most American cities after protests and deaths.
Now, the question is whatever happened to “Police Reforms? Promised by the Democratic party and the Biden administration. The answer is NOTHING!
