The Injustice towards Black citizens

On the AHA (American Humanist Association) website, I found an article about controversial events that happened in the United States related to racism. They were talking about the recent shooting events that happened to unarmed black people in Ferguson with Michael Brown and Travon Martin in Florida, and how it is unacceptable to judge or to kill someone just because of the color of his skin. Calling a time to reflect of what’s going on is what they suggest and I totally agree with the opinion of the association.
Its needs to stop. The racism and the killings. The mistreatment of the police to men of black race in the United States is something that always existed. But now killing them because they’re walking in the street with a bottle of ice tea and candy (Travon Martin), or because they’re standing on the corner of a block (Eric Garner), bothering no one is ridiculous. They [agents of the government] take advantage of their power and most of the time get away with the crime that they commit. They are the ones that are supposed to prevent crime, they are the ones to protect us but don’t seem to do it. At the eyes of the government, black people are perceived as “the problem”, but the government needs to open their mind, and see what the real problem is and do something about it. Black people are as equal as any race on this planet. They have the same rights and values as any other human in this world. They claim that racism and slavery stopped, so why black people are still treated as an inferior race?
To conclude, we need to stop judging people upon their race or color their skin, or else, we’ll see another person of race deceased in the news, without counting the ones that weren’t in the headlines, killed in similar circumstances.
