It sucks that we’re starting to get numb to things like this when we see it in the headlines, though there’s no possible way I’ll ever be comfortable reading these words.

Say a little prayer for our brethren folks. For every step we take forward there always feels like we take two or three back.

Another day, another innocent black child killed.

Sigh. At this point, it feels as though every day there’s a different headline of an innocent black killing by white people who, ironically enough, felt “threatened” in some way by a harmless act, so proceeded to murder in anticipation. This time, a young Latino/black teenager by the name of Elijah Al-Amin, was brutally stabbed by a white man who had no prior interaction with him, but felt “threatened” by his music.

Yesterday, Arizona law enforcement officials arrested, and charged, 27 year-old Michael Paul Adams with the first-degree, premeditated murder of 17-year-old Elijah. According to the Arizona Republic’s review of the official court documents, Adams had allegedly slit the boy’s throat and stabbed him repeatedly with a pocketknife at a Peoria Circle K gas station.
