It is Getting Old

I know we do not have all of the facts regarding the police killing of Alton Sterling, but from what I can see, the narrative looks familiar. Then, just a day later, Philando Castile¬†was gunned down in his own car by a cop. Black, blue, or green — it is a life. As an academic who looks at race and engages in meaningful conversations about our past, present, and future predicament, I have elected to fly (post) the NAACP flag from 1920 to1938 on my social media page. The NAACP displayed this every time a black person was lynched. I will do this for the murder/lynching of innocent black folks.
