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.
我们还是要呼吁大家要镇定应付大局，全国之动乱可能无法停止，就在上週， 亚特兰大警察又把一名黑人打死，从报告中得知二十七岁的黑人青年布鲁斯因测出酒精出超，并拒捕和两名警察扭打后抢走了雷射枪，在逃走后被警察连开三枪被打死， 虽然市长莱恩立即把开枪警察革职，局长雪尔同时辞职，但仍难息众怒，上週末再度上演放火烧店之悲剧。
