I Am The 14% – Black People in America: Why We Will Never Overcome

Remember the following fact the next time a Black woman or man is unjustly killed or why it is so hard for us to overcome the effects of racism in this country. Also factor in that many of us only want to assimilate.

We are a minority in more ways than one.

In 2012 US Census Bureau estimated 44,456,009 African Americans in the United States meaning that 14.1% of the total American population of 313.9 Million is Black. This includes those who identify as ‘Black Only’ and as ‘Black in combination with another race’. The ‘Black Only’ category totaled 41.2 million African Americans or 13.1% of the total U.S population.

If they (the police) gunned me down would they use this picture of me on the set of a film to show what type of a person I was?

Would they also mention the fact that I am a single mother on welfare? Also, my name IS Dangerous Lee, would that also be used against me?
