On April 17, two black men, Alize Ramon Smith and Jarron Keonte Moreland were found dismembered in a pond in Oklahoma. Both men were 21. Four people have been arrested for their murders.
Knowing that these kinds of things are still heavily present in today’s society is not only painful but terrifying. I’m glad to know there have been arrests, but the fact that black people are still being lynched in 2018 is unacceptable. No one deserves to die like that. It’s also disturbing how little news coverage this is getting. Many of the major mainstream media news sources haven’t even touched it, and I think that’s a shame because awareness is the first step to putting a stop to it.
