The photos of Eric Garner and Mike Brown. Lifeless bodies on the ground. Reminded me of. 12 years a slave. The scene in which he was nearly lynched and hung from the tree all day. No one was allowed to help him. It was a warning. Behave the way I say or this will happen to you. A warning. Stop being black and alive or this will happen to you.
