Carson Wentz – “Racism In Our Country Breaks My Heart”.
I have seen so many posts lately on Facebook wishing this 2020 year would disappear, I understand that completely. We've had pretty much everything thrown our way - The coronavirus, Job layoffs, murder hornets, feel free to crawl under the covers, however, we still have seven months to go before whatever 2021 can produce. The virus has caused economic destruction, businesses have closed for good, our lives have been turned upside down. Self-quarantine, practicing social distancing, somehow life has gone on. All of what I have mentioned seem to pale in comparison to what erupted on May 25th. The excruciating videotape of a white police officer killing a handcuffed black male. The evidence is pretty clear, the officer used excessive force on a helpless victim. Police brutality once again for the whole world to see.
There is a young man named Carson Wentz. A 27-year old white male from North Dakota. He is a quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagle. Since the death of George Floyd, many of the NFL players have spoke out, but Carson chose to express his disgust a little more personal. He has gone on to relay his background, growing up in a white community, there is absolutely no way he could ever feel the fear that a black person has felt in the past, present, and in the future. Carson does however, feel the pain of racism in this country. He may never know what it's like to be treated in such a violent manner because of his color, but his absolute bewilderment of unacceptable social injustice is real, and he's not alone with his feelings.
