You know I can't be happy about this. Believe me when I say I am NO fan of the Garner's or Snipes and whoever else is part of the family. However, this woman leaves behind two children who are now Motherless. Who knows if their Father(s) are in the picture. It's just not a good thing. One good thing that Erica Garner did that I thought was interesting was when she went off on Obama. That made me LOL. The rage was strong in her. When you consider her underlying cardiac issues the fact that she as able to yell at the top her lungs at Obama was amazing.

I don't know. I grew up in Detroit when stuff that made the Garner ordeal look mild happened on a regular basis. Watch the film "Detroit" by Kathryn Bigelow, written by Mark Boal. This is the racism I ran away from as a WHITE woman. I cried throughout the film. Because it's all true and it's f*cking painful. Black men getting shot wasn't an anomaly, it was the norm. It was a war within the streets and, ultimately, it destroyed the city I was born in. We never made peace, the whites and the blacks of Detroit. And the dysfunction, racism, and chaos carry on into the current day on a level of violence that makes NYC seem soft as a native being honest about it all.

When you were growing up in Detroit, NYC was a much different place than it is today as you know it. Difference is NYC advanced at a much faster pace. Detroit will eventually get there too. NYC was clocking close to 2,000 homicides a year.

I feel very sorry for Mr. Garner and his entire family. It is no secret that the police treat black people and white people very differently. We need to put an end to poverty in this country and only then will the police maybe stop being so aggressive. I'm shocked at their aggression even when I watch something like Live PD.

I remain neutral because I see both side argument.

No change. I have always feared anyone near me with a gun, and I always will. I even cringe when somebody on stage is wielding a weapon.
