A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR

#ICANTBREATHE JUSTICE HAS NO COLOR

2

014 was full of joy, triumph, pain and suffering. News of the Royal family’s newest prince, the second inauguration of Barack Obama and ongoing international conflict flashed across our screens and on the front pages of our local newspapers. One theme that continued to overwhelm our senses via cellphone video, mainstream and social media was the issue of police brutality and their use of excessive force.

Such a response has not been witnessed since the non-violent marches lead by Martin Luther King Jr. to Montgomery, Alabama in 1965. The hashtags #blacklivesmatter and #icantbreathe lit up social media—sparking emotional and sometimes hateful debates about race in America. One thing is for sure, no one can deny the fact that we indeed still have a problem.

These violent acts played out for the world to see just as they did over 50 years ago.

Although the debate on social justice continues, my stance on the issue is clear—#icantbreathe unless #everyonecanbreathe because #justicehasnocolor.

The untimely deaths of young black men including Michael Brown and Eric Gardner and unfavorable rulings from the Grand Jury ignited a grassroots movement across this country.
