It was said almost 50 years ago that when the revolution comes, some of us will probably catch it on TV.
Today that is still very likely or you may see it trending on your social media feed.
You will wonder what finally pushed people over the edge.
Maybe search for the source of what caused the uproar.
The Culture has been given plenty of reasons throughout history all the way up to recent months, for the revolution to go live.
Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, I’m sure you’ve heard about the tragic murder of 28 year-old, Xavier University graduate, Atatiana Jefferson.
In case you haven’t, Jefferson was shot and killed by a white police officer, Aaron Dean, who was sent to her home to complete a wellness check after her neighbor noticed her front door was ajar.
Deans defense has already attempted to justify the slaying by advising that Dean took it upon himself to treat the trip as an home invasion despite being given no additional reason to do so besides the conditions of the front door.
Now, yet ANOTHER innocent life taken at the hands of the boys in blue leaving a family to mourn.
So what are we, the average citizen, to do about it?
Do we share the post until a new hashtag comes along? Do we express our frustration with a broken system but fail to show up to the polls? Do we sit and watch the defense to finesse the jury into believing he feared for his life from the outside of her home.
Do we watch as they paint this college educated, humanitarian in colors that depict her as an threat because she was protecting her home and family from an unannounced, overzealous officer?
Many of you will say yes because we have no choice. Many don’t believe there is much that we can do. But for those of you who say no, what will you do? What do you feel The Culture should do to avoid becoming another hashtag?
“The revolution WILL put you in the driver’s seat
The revolution will not be televised
WILL not be televised
WILL NOT BE TELEVISED.
The revolution will be no re-run brothers
The revolution will be live”
