Today I read the story of Jimmie Lee Jackson. He was killed in Marion Alabama in 1965 during a protest march. His story, and Marion's, takes second fiddle to the atrocities in Selma not long after. Selma was well-documented, but Marion was not. In fact 'peace' officers shot out every streetlight in Marion, and arrested or confiscated press' cameras. At least one reporter was beaten severely after taking a flash photo. There are no pictures to tell Marion's story.

Jimmie Lee Jackson had just gotten off work - he was not part of the protest, except to get his mother and grandfather home safely. Troopers entered a diner next to the church and began beating people indiscriminately,  including Jimmie's mother. At some point a trooper fired a single shot, gravely wounding Jimmie Lee Jackson. He died in a Selma hospital eight days later.

Marion, and Jimmie Lee Jackson's death, were the sparks that lit the fuse of the march from Selma. We have searing images of what happened at that bridge - I've driven over it many times - but little is known of Marion and Jimmie Lee Jackson.

There is a straight line between the troopers in Marion and the officers in Minneapolis. The only difference, and I am thankful for it, is the perpetrators in Minneapolis didn't get away with it. Or at least haven't yet. Small comfort to George Floyd's family. No one was ever charged, or even investigated, in the murder of Jimmie Lee Jackson. 


Thanks for providing this perspective. Progress seems not just slow, but fleeting.

The only thing these losers have going for them is that they truly think they are better than someone else...That is some sad shit right there.{#Snooty}

I want to emphasize that I think white Americans have gone through quite radical changes in their attitudes, and that we’re talking about a more likely 25 percent of Americans who are hardcore racist, but I think most Americans have quite decent views about race.

But sociologists have argued that while some whites may have liberal views, a lot of them are not prepared to make the concessions that are important for the improvement of Black lives.

Living on the Best Coast, our local news is full of "another attack on an Asian" but I notice that the don't mention the race of the person doing the attacking. 
I think it's starting to become pertinent because in every video they've shown, the Asian is being attacked by a black person. I'm happy to hear if that's incorrect.

I just can't be arsed to watch those videos. Printed media is much more efficient for conveying information... or misinformation. At least a summary of wtf the video is about would help.

Todays inequality partially reflects yesterday's racism. 

Racism is inequality (social disparity), but inequality isn't necessarily racism (could be based on sex, gender, class, etc.)

Again, you are missing the point.

From your link
Institutional racism, also known as systemic racism, is a form of racism that is embedded through laws within society or an organization.

I already acknowledged its possible certain organizations in the U.S. could, but not definitively, be defined as having a systemic race issue, e.g. the police and now maybe the military (among many other problems both these organizations have).

But U.S. society itself is NOT systemically racist.

You can't have one without the other, no matter how many times you choose to deny it.
