We Need To Be Calm And Protect This Great Nation
In the last three months because of the Coronavirus pandemic, our community has suffered so much pain and lost so many people, and we still are feeling so much uncertainty.
Last week there was another tragedy in Atlanta, Georgia. A twenty-nine year old black man, Rayshard Brooks, was fatally shot by officers in a struggle following a field sobriety test. Authorities said the lone man had grabbed an officer’s Taser gun, but was running away when he was shot. Mayor Lane said she did not believe that this was a justified use of deadly force. Police chief Erika Shields immediately resigned, but still couldn’t calm the people.
Recent unrest in this country is not just a simple conflict between police force and the citizens. This is a long-standing social issue in our nation. When we look at our school system, the poor school districts don’t have enough resources to teach the students adequately. A lot of them come from single parent or broken family homes. Many can’t even get a high school diploma and don’t expect to go to college to get more education. When these groups of young people do not have the skills to get a job, they became a social problem. When Dr. Martin Luther King fought for civil rights in the1960’s, the political struggle just could not be improved. The black community living with this challenge is our responsibility to help each other and not just a slogan.
We are so angry and sad to watch some politicians use African, Asian and Chinese issues to gain their own political interest.
We are still urging all people to be united and to use all our effort to protect this great nation.
我們還是要呼籲大家要鎮定應付大局，全國之動亂可能無法停止，就在上週， 亞特蘭大警察又把一名黑人打死，從報告中得知二十七歲的黑人青年布魯斯因測出酒精出超，並拒捕和兩名警察扭打後搶走了雷射槍，在逃走後被警察連開叁槍被打死， 雖然市長萊恩立即把開槍警察革職，局長雪爾同時辭職，但仍難息衆怒，上週末再度上演放火燒店之悲劇。
