Victim Blaming

Without an understanding of history, how will children have the stength to perservere? 

What is the difference between policing and protecting? Is it fair to badger young males of color with the concept that if they stood, talked, walked or spoke a certain way, there would be less policing? Is it true? The Fugitive Slave Law was passed by the United States Congress on September 18, 1850. The law, which penalized officials who did not arrest Negros and rewarded those who seized a black person fitting the description of any alleged runaway, laid the foundation for modern patroling and community policing. In addition, the federal goverment rewarded and paid ‘patrollers’ and court judges for every black person found guilty.
