Injustice In Polk County: The Murder OF Bob White

Before we began to #SayTheirNames, thousands of Black and brown bodies in America, whose names we forgot or never knew, Bob White was one of those names that we should remember.

1. Everything about Bob White's case is horrifying and wrong. It affects all of us.

Where there is no justice for a Black man, then there's no justice for any of us, no matter our color or anything.

What a horrifying miscarriage of justice.

2. I know, I was so sick when I initially came across it. What made it worse...

That is how my Google search turned up so little. These things shouldn't be forgotten. We should all know who Bob White was, as long as all of the other Black men and women who were murdered and stripped of their rights. We remember George Floyd and dozens of others who were killed in recent years, but do we (our society) remember all of those who were killed so long ago....other than Emmitt Till? Not really.

I already added it to Wikipedia, but they are taking up to five months to approve newly submitted articles. I don't want him to be forgotten.
