Dear Donald Trump,
It is three AM (GMT) this early Saturday Early morning, Could 30, as I comply with developments relating to the nationwide protests presently getting staged as a consequence of the brutal murder of George Floyd at the palms of your law enforcement officers.
Mr. President, certainly the scenes oozing out of downtown Atlanta are fairly worrisome as similar scenes evolve across main towns in the United States of America. Genuinely the land of the free and the house of the courageous has not lived up to its invoice of legal rights and liberty as enshrined in the sacred scrolls of the Declaration of Independence.
As I observe protesters assault the CNN Headquarters in Atlanta, I see the anger and aggravation of citizens of your wonderful region across the political and racial divide, all clamouring for the justice that is promised in your nation’s philosophical verify ebook.
Alas! What is going on in America proper now would be peculiar only to people who have no information of the prophesies of the late Martin Luther King Junior who (fifty seven several years back) boldly asserted the inconvenient reality as follows:
“When the architects of our republic wrote the impressive phrases of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory observe to which each American was to tumble heir. This notice was a promise that all men, yes, black gentlemen as nicely as white males (My Lord), would be certain the unalienable legal rights of daily life, liberty, and the pursuit of contentment. It is apparent right now that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of shade are worried. (My Lord) Rather of honoring this sacred obligation, America has provided the Negro men and women a negative verify, a check out which has occur back again marked inadequate funds.”
The Donald, it is your misfortune that nowadays (far more than at any time before), the African race, is ready and eager to need justice and equality. It falls inside of the interval of your reign that the sons and daughters of the crowd solemnly assembled at the National Monument on that fateful day in 1963, when M.L.K. made that historic speech, stand prepared and bold to desire that your federal reserves of justice honour that promissory be aware and no pressure on earth can cease this movement.
You have been eccentric, provocative and down correct maliciously egocentric, but this is not the time to attempt any egomaniacal shenanigans. You need to increase up to the occasion and reply to the contact for justice to be sent in the subject of George Floyd. Your nation yearns for management and you have woefully unsuccessful to increase to the situation amidst your government’s shambolic method to the present the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, here will come an additional tragedy on your doorsteps searching for the proper mix of authorized and sociological responses that would mend and reunite the United States of The us. Will you response to this proverbial 3 A.M cellphone contact that previous Presidential prospect Hillary Clinton warned all presidential aspirant about?
Whatsoever your answer to the foregoing question could be, you are much better off performing some real soul-searching and wide-dependent session just before you strike your Twitter take care of.
In parting, Black Lives Matter . President, I refer you to a warning posted to your office a lot more than fifty percent a century ago that mail was resolved to your business office by no much less an illumined soul than the reverend pastor of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, “the price that America must pay out for the continued oppression of the Negro and other minority teams is the price of its personal destruction. (Of course it is) For the hour is late. And the clock of future is ticking out. We must act now before it is also late.”
