Devin Hughes' comic explains why racial tension in America has increased in recent years, and why the issue shouldn't be taken lightly.
If you don’t think racial prejudice exists in America, you haven’t been paying attention. Even Mother Jones reported that the police shoot and kill African Americans nearly twice as frequently as any other racial group.
It is written:
“Black people were about four times as likely to die in custody or while being arrested than whites.”
This is one of the reasons racial tension has only escalated in recent years, much to the dismay of activists who seek to unite the population for real change to ensue. Despite the fact that America’s first black president, Barack Obama, stated “Nothing of significance, nothing of benefit, results from destructive acts,” little has changed. In fact, life seems to be getting worse for African Americans, according to AlterNet, which is why parents are now being forced to teach their kids that if they are a minority in the U.S., they may be singled out.
The following 10-part comic explains this.
Not only is this reality sad, it is unacceptable. All lives matter, and that’s a truth everyone should hold dear. Keep in mind that dividing the public is the best way to ensure that ‘the people’ have no real power.
Do not allow racial prejudice, sexist beliefs, or outdated ideals on how one should live their life prevent you from accepting other members of the human race. Unity is essential for the human collective to consciously evolve, and your actions and intentions do matter.
