"You kill a dog, you go to jail. You kill a little Black boy and nothing happens."
Benjamin Crump said that.
He is the attorney for the Anderson family, the parents of Martin Lee Anderson a 14-year old boy, beaten to death by seven former boot camp guards and a nurse.
He said it after an all white jury deliberated just 90 minutes and found all eight of the defendants "not guilty" in the horrific beating of Martin.
Michael Vick may go to jail for killing dogs, these "guards" and "nurses" will go home...
Aren't you tired of white people (and in this case psychotic Black and Asian cops) killing Black people?
There are no consequences for killing a Black person in Amerikkka.
All of history attests to this fact with the bloody and sordid history of lynchings, castrations, medical apartheid, murders, kidnappings, rapes and drownings of millions of Black people throughout the world during the past 500 years is irrefutable evidence that the price of Afrikan life in the white world is cheap.
In my opinion, Ida B. Wells-Barnett said it best over 100 years ago; it is something that Afrikans must read, study and take heed to as we witness the killing of Sean Bell, the re-incarceration of Mychal Bell, one of the "Jena Six" and the exoneration of those who aided and abetted the death of Martin Lee Anderson.
"The lesson this teaches and which every Afro American should ponder well, is that a Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home, and it should be used for that protection which the law refuses to give. When the white man who is always the aggressor knows he runs as great a risk of biting the dust every time his Afro-American victim does, he will have greater respect for Afro-American life. The more the Afro-American yields and cringes and begs, the more he has to do so, the more he is insulted, outraged and lynched."
