The Rose of Black is Sacred by swo8 Blues Jazz Lyrics by Shelby Courtland from the album Unfinished Business in iTunes

A special thanks to sepultura13 for bringing this to my attention. On Wednesday, August 17th 2016 a police officer shot and killed a black man in Kelso, Washington. It was only Monday when I last posted this song.This happens far too often.                                                              One piece of good news in that I heard an add on Bounce TV – #justice4all.org was organizing to have special retraining for police in deescalation techniques. This shoot to kill with impunity has to stop.

  1. *SIGH* add Terence Crutcher, father of four, and 13-year-old Tyre King to this list…I’m angered, sickened, and saddened all over again…it just doesn’t end. It never seems to end. And ignorant @$$holes keep saying, “Well, if you would only protest / behave / comport yourselves in the RIGHT way, this won’t happen!”

    They seem to blame Black people for the racism that we’ve been fighting against since before the Emancipation Proclamation was signed…
