No, I do not believe it is up to the black community to alleviate black men of a fear that is inherited from years of abuse from the hands of a system that has declared time after time that black men are public enemy number one. That job is up to the people that hold their purses when they are around a black man, the people that wear “I Can Breathe” shirts, the people that listen to Darren Wilson describe Michael Brown as “hulking” and co-sign that statement as legitimate. It is their responsibility to put the black man at ease because they are the reason that he lives in a constant fear for his life.
