Eve Carson Memorial Wiki Page
The news that a young college student was abducted by two murderous thugs and then put to death with a shotgun blast that tore through the right side of her head and the hand that she put up in defense has thus far not drawn any street protests anywhere in this country.
As most in "Black America" makes the reference to the the "history" that might be made in November's election as their reference to our collective "racial progress".....for some reason I make the same queues about progress as I often make note of what "didn't happen" as was the case in the past to show that indeed "times have changed".
You see - "back in the day" a Black man might have gotten the very same treatment that Eve Carson got just for a rumor of having whistled at a woman who looked like Eve Carson. This word was enough to send the jury known as the "lynch mob" out to serve as policeman, prosecutor, judge, jury, jailer and then executioner.
No I am not at all saying that any of this needs to come back. Indeed if any White person seeking revenge on these thugs in such a way I will be the first one calling for them to join these thugs in jail.
My perspective is coming at you from a totally different angle. Please make note how America has changed in that terror is not rained down on any Black "suspect" in which actually guilty or innocent he is GUILTY and the smallest of crime renders a death penalty. These days are no more. You must give credit to the Civil Rights Movement AND all of the legislators, locally elected executives and police personnel for bringing us to this day.
Sadly, however, I am not sure that this past work is APPRECIATED by some who show that they don't "give a damn" about law and order.
My appeal is to the Black community. You can see everything that I am seeing and reporting on. We have a CRIME SPREE in our community and you know it. No amount of redirection attempts telling me about the problems that "White folks are having in their communities too" is enough to cancel out this FACT. It can only ever serve to PACIFY you. Nothing changes upon your pacification.
It is clear that you know how to be riled into action. Just let this have been 2 White Southern boys doing the same to a Black girl. There is really no doubt that the so called "Civil Rights Agenda" would be altered and many frequent flier miles will have been generated for travel into the Raleigh-Durham area in support of national coordination to make sure everyone "stays on message". And what would that message be:
"The Black community is TIRED of seeing those who have no respect for OUR HUMANITY and our RIGHTS, coming into our community and having their way with us. A dead Black person is left in the wake of their hate-filed romp through our community. We are calling on all elected official, law enforcement agencies and community leaders from communites - White and Black to do everything necessary to keep our people safe and those who have shown that they have no respect for our rights or the law to be managed and dealt with appropriately. It is our civil right to feel safe in our own community."
If "color-blind justice" is the type of justice that has been long sought after then should this type of justice extend from the demands that you place on the "system" to change so that this point can be made and have it stretch over to YOU in your calls for "color-blind RESPONSES" to those events, if exploited could turn into harm for Black people from those who see your double standards on such outragious incidents such as this? Please let it be known that you are more than a "marketing organization" who knows how to get folks riled up with the news of events that fit your "job description" while sitting idle when the very same happens but with a "photographic negative".
The girls "carcass" was left on the street like trash.
