Get it together people.
or were you referring to the other black people dressed ” respectfully ” during that time period that were being attacked with fire hoses and dogs? or maybe the ones getting lynched while white people stood under them, smiling and taking pictures?
or was it the ones that stood alongside MLK, dressed just as nicely, that got blown up inside of a church?
racism has nothing to do with how ” respectfully ” we dress. it’s about race.
stop making excuses for them you piece of shit.
As a Black man I can attest to the fact that Black men do need to wake up and get it together, HOWEVER. I disagree that a mere way of dressing is the answer.
Henry Louis Gates faced police brutality at his own home and he was not wearing saggy jeans and a tee shirt and he is friends with our current president who has faced racism on a constant basis.
As long as we are brown we are going to be harassed and we are going to get brutalized.
As this gallery shows, Dr. King was wearing a suit when he was killed, not saggy jeans and a tee shirt.
It should always matter what we do, not how we are dressed that should be the determining factor in how we are judged.
