It happened again. It has always happened in America. Armed white men, acting as vigilantes, killed an innocent African-American, Ahmaud Arbery. Today would have been his 26th birthday.
We only know about this because a video has surfaced. Countless other such murders have gone undocumented. Now, we must act swiftly. We must demand justice.
Now that the perpetrators have been arrested, they must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Also, the U.S. Department of Justice must return to its historic role in the civil rights era, and investigate the violation of Ahmaud Arbery’s civil rights. Click here to sign the petition.
It is the obligation of every American to recognize the crimes of the past, their continuation into the present, and demand they end. This is our immediate task. Then next week, next month, next year, and throughout our lives we must be active anti-racists.
America must repudiate and end the bloodstained legacy of racism. We must all affirm that Black Lives Matter, live as our credo these immortal words:
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
