The father of Ahmaud Arbery, Marcus Arbery, had a great message for all of us. We should listen to him.
The father of Ahmaud Arbery spoke to the media after his sons’ murderers were found guilty: “All lives matter, not just black children. We don’t want to see nobody go through this. I don’t want no daddy to watch his kid get shot down like that. It’s all our problem. It’s all our problem. So, hey, let’s keep fighting, let’s keep making this place a better place for all human beings. All human beings. Everybody.”

After a day and a half, jurors returned their verdicts in the trial stemming from the February 2020 death of 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery.
Travis McMichael, his father Gregory McMichael and William “Roddie” Bryan, were all charged with murder in Arbery’s death.
Each faced nine felony counts carrying potential penalties of anywhere from one year in prison to life behind bars.
Bless this man for speaking his faith and mind.
He said what a white man can’t say without being branded a racist.
Until Blacks stop killing each other, I won’t believe that Blacks believe All Lives Matter, much less that Black People really believe Black Lives Matter. When a Black kills a Black, the Media all but ignores it, It’s just too common. When a Black is killed by someone White, it’s headline news. In America, Blacks who are 13% of the population kill over 500 White People a year, while Whites kill about 250 White people. Over 2500 Black people kill other Black people per year, which means Blacks kill Blacks 10 times more than a White person kills a Black person. I will admit that Homicide overall is far too high, but one thing that is not happening is a whole sale slaughter of Black People by White People contrary to what the Media is trying to make us believe.
In the Arbery case, if Arbery did not trespass on the construction site, there would have been no reason for him to suspected of robbery. Evidently, Arbery had a history. Stupid actions can end up deadly and trespassing is just asking for confrontation. Where I live, no one, at least no one who is smart, comes on someone’s property unannounced. If you are perceived as a threat there is always the potential to be shot, so making yourself a target is just plan stupid. Apparently Arbery had even threatened police in the pass. If he threatened the men holding him for the police, this might be a case of suicide by red neck! Too bad the case wasn’t televised like the Rittenhouse trial so there was more insight into this case.
