It’s no secret that more black men have been killed under Barack Obama’s presidency than ever before. The uprising and death of African Americans, both men and women at the hands of police have been prevalent in recent years.
The latest victim of causality is Freddie Gray, a Baltimore, Maryland native who was killed this month while in police custody.
Gray was hauled into a police van with a broken spine but exited with a broken spine and severed voice box. It is widely speculated that Gray had several injuries, of which details are being withheld; due to the current tension and violent rioting going on since he was laid to rest.
But Freddie Gray is just one black man amongst many who have been killed by police.
Last year alone there was the killing of Michael Brown Akai Gurley, Kajieme Powell, Tyree Woodson, Jonathan Ferrelle, Ezelle Ford, John Crawford, Tamir Rice and Eric Garner. The list goes on with many to name but is president Barack Obama really to blame?
Did people of color really expect to receive justice for all and equal share, just because a black man took up residence in the white house?
