Tribute to the nine victims of the Charleston church shooting

Slavery has divided and destroyed forever the African continent. Billions of Africans have lost a member of their family, enslaved in the United States, South America and the Caribbean. The result of this genocide of the black people is that we have been divided, obliterated, forgotten, mistreated. Many people who are conscious of this problem are actively struggling to regain their origins. They have to cope with growing racism in our society and stereotypes or clichés inculcated by those who wish to divide.
Scandalized, by the number of blacks slaughtered in North or South America, we can not remain silent and remain impassive in the face of this climate of violence.
I wonder each time:

Why are blacks people so hated? “

What have we done so that, throughout the world, our color is synonymous with rejection, contempt and acts of racism?
What does the domain, the profession, the situation in which you find yourself, we are still victims of racism? But why, what have we done to deserve this. Why are they so afraid of us?
God created the difference. He chose to create white, black, yellow, small, big, big or other people. Why does the world not accept differences? Why such jealousy and hatred towards him who is different from you?
Hommage aux victimes de Charleston
Some blacks are so ashamed of their colors, that they decapitate the skin to become clearer. Others think that the black race is cursed, prefers to marry people with clear skin (not out of love), but for their children to be brighter in skin. In order to erase, the color of black skin. Delete what they are.
Without forgetting, the blacks, who do not call themselves “black.” They reject their origins in a single line, in order to be better accepted in this society.
Whatever its color of skin, we must unite for love, not for any interest whatsoever. Long live solidarity and accept differences. 

Charleston Church shooting: an act of barbarism

On Wednesday, June 17, 2015, the city of Charleston experienced an unbearable act of barbarism. Indeed, nine innocent people were shot dead by a racist, unbalanced, white supremacist, Dylan Roof, in a church while they were praying.
This unbalanced, was only 21 years old, he shot nine people of cold blood, for to him, the blacks have no right to live in this world. But he chose to leave a person alive, so that she could testify to what happened. Through this odious act, he has just condemned himself and destroyed the lives of several families.
Its objective was to trigger “a war between races. This racist had a website where he poured out his hatred of blacks and Hispanics.
_The blacks are “stupid and violent” and represent the biggest problem of the Americans. Same, for Hispanics. For him, the whites are superior to the blacks and must not guilt against the treatment undergone by the blacks. 
According to his uncle, Dylan Roof was a very introverted young man, who spent most of his time in his room. He hardly ever went out and had no friends.
Another of these classmates at the high school explained to the police:

  I never heard him say anything, but he had this sort of Southern pride, as would say. Conservative beliefs strong enough. He did a lot of racist jokes, but we did not really take him seriously. “
