Another Black Murder Flies Under the Radar Because of Over Coverage of Trump

Another Black Murder Flies Under the Radar Because of Over Coverage of Trump

Yet another Black man murdered this weekend by police.

I get very sad when bad things happen in the world. There is a silver lining in this case though…an arrest has been made! This is huge!
This arrest is a direct result of street activism! A police officer has been arrested in connection to a fatal shooting of Jonathan Price, a black man. The shooting happened on Saturday while all of us were busy looking at Trump. This case is outrageous!

Here’s what happened right under our noses:

  • Jonathan Price saw a man and a woman fighting at a gas station so he went to intervene.
  • Police arrived at the scene and attempted to arrest Price.
  • Price lifted his arms and tried to explain what happened.
  • Officer Lucas tasered him.
  • Price’s convulsing body was ‘a perceived threat’ to Lucas.
  • In response, he shot him to death.

Shaun Lucas was arrested on suspicion of murder and his bail is set at $1 million.

I’m happy this police officer has been arrested, but I am OUTRAGED that we have another example of black skin being perceived as a threat. It’s unacceptable and it is leading to MURDER!

black lives matter

It’s not enough to declare #BlackLivesMatter.

White people need to stare in the mirror and take proactive steps to root out the ingrained racism that is woven into the fabric of our minds and our society.



This kind of tragedy demands ON THE RADAR coverage and NEEDS TO STOP.

To Jonathan Price’s mother:

I’m sorry I didn’t know about this sooner. I’m sorry that days have past and the world hasn’t been calling out his name. I’m sorry that it feels like people don’t care when the cameras aren’t watching.

I’m sorry he was taken from you. I’m sorry for all the hate in this world. I want to you to know that I care about this. I will keep pushing for change. I can’t enjoy all this country has to offer because it is obvious that it is only offered to people like me.
Jonathan mattered.
He mattered.
My sincerest condolences,⠀
Just another mother grieving with you
