Please don't shoot me, yes I'm Black!

I'm not one to jump on the race card bandwagon. Matter of fact I believe Blacks in America choose to continue to enslave themselves after 150 years of the 13th amendment. But one can agree that America has a long way to go when it comes to race relations in its country. Recent events do not necessarily scream racism or prejudice, but all one has to do is look at the record of recent and unprecedented events. A common thread remains—an unarmed Black man dies in the hands of a White police officer—sworn to duty to protect citizens of it's jurisdiction. Question is why does this continue to happen? Is there an end in sight?
