“For the Lord your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him.”2 Chronicles 30:9MERCIFULLY KNEELING IN A MOMENT OF CRISIS: THE TRAIL OF DEREK CHAUVIN by e.graham
According to the Book of Daniel (9:9) The Most High shows compassion toward those who have broken His law. But, unfortunately, for our beloved brother George Floyd, when four Minnesota police officers arrested him and placed him in handcuffs, they showed him NO MERCY.
Even, when he begged and pleaded for just a little bit MERCY, while crying for his deceased mother, as one applied pressure on his neck from his knee, two others placed their weight across his back, blocking the oxygen to his lungs from traveling to his brain, for 8 minutes and 46 seconds until he laid breathless in the street-murdered in broad daylight. They showed him NO MERCY.
SEE, historically, on the plantations of America, sometimes, the overseer or officer would take one of the strongest “slaves” or the biggest “bucks” WITH NO MERCY, and tight ropes around their limbs to four horses, racing them in four different directions, ripping them apart, killing them in broad daylight for the other slaves to witness in order to inflict FEAR in them, as well as, their future generations, who may have thoughts or ideas of rebelling against their POWER and AUTHORITY.
While many believe this is an old school tactic, no longer practiced in America, George Floyd, who stood over 6 feet tall and weighed about 230lbs faced the same type of torture at the hands of the police and was murdered to inflict FEAR into the masses, as people "fearfully" stood and watched.
But, according to the Book of Psalm Chapter 27, it states: The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
Symbolically, Colin Kaepernick, different yet the same, while taking a knee during the National Anthem, in order to bring awareness to the same form of police brutality that killed Floyd, was “psychological lynched” or choked out by a segment of the American population, the NFL, the “OWNERS” and members of the head coaching staffs, who refused to hire him, while “white-balling” him out the league in order to show the "ballers" if you think about stepping out of line, you will face the same financial "Castration" as Kaepernick, who had enough "INTESTINAL FORTITUDE" to take stand against INJUSTICE.
Let’s not forget, the President referred to those taking a knee as “SONS OF BITCHES” Meaning, with 20/20 hindsight, that Trump was calling the players’ “Black Mothers,” like the one, which Greg Floyd cried out for in the moment of his distress, NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF BITCHES.
See, before you CAN MURDER someone, you have to de-humanize them, making them less than a human or less than a dog. This is why, according to court reports, after Ahmaud Aubrey was murder in cold blood in Brunswick, Georgia, his killer stood over his body and called him a Nigger.
And, without a shadow of a doubt, this was done in order to INFLICT FEAR, in other Black people, who may have thoughts of rebelling against their POWER and AUTHORITY. No different than when Trump tweeted- “when the looting starts; the shooting starts” or “releasing the dogs, which triggers images from the early ’60s during segregation, when dogs were used to bite the flesh of peaceful protesters. Even, his usage of the word “THUGS,” which is RED MEAT for his base, is a word associated for Black males, whether they are young Black men protesting in the street or million-dollar athletes.
So, despite a league being 70% Black, with all of their muscles, weightlifting, locker-room brawls, expensive homes, fancy cars, aggressive attitudes, the majority of the players, became a church of cowards, and submitted to the bottom-line and put their toes on the lines during the singing of the National Anthem.
AND, just like THE WORLD stood back and watched while SHOWING NO MERCY for Colin Kaepernick, those four officers showed NO MERCY for George Floyd, as he took his last breath.
But, I guarantee that these same officers, Derek Chauvin, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J Alexander Kueng, who were involved in the death of George Floyd, will beg for MERCY from the judge as well as the JURY when, or if, they are convicted for their crimes.
The question still remains, however. If Freedom is unfamiliar to souls on stolen land, will the American Justice System hear their cries for Mercy?
Guilty or Not Guilty.
The World waits as the flames continue to burn.
