Floyd Cook Jr is working to secure justice for my son, Tamir Rice

Floyd Cook Jr

For 400+ years African Americans have been systematically devalued and characterized as less than equal to whites, even though the traditionally recognized slave owning white founding fathers stated in writing that "all men are created equal" in our infamous founding documents. Time, historical evidence and current human behavior have however shown that such a platitude was a lie in terms of actual intended implimentation, particularly for African Americans. Fast forward to current day, since the progressive gains made during the civil rights movement have been continuously underminded, eroded, forgotten, twisted and obviously devalued, the taking of Tamir Rice's life and others similiar, keenly make us aware that the more things change, the more they stay the same! Per Fredrick Douglass - "Power concedes nothing without a demand, it never did and it never will." Therefore, it is time to make another demand!
