As I often monitor news of the day, I watch people of different nationalities come together to support their own.  While Americans in mass are coming together to support  family and friends from losing their homes and jobs, Blacks all far too often are having to come together to continuing fight for our own human rights.

Case in point Trayvone Martin.  This is not to say we as a people are not supportive of one another because we are however, unfortunately far too infrequently.  The media rarely shows our efforts to unite unless we’re coming together to once again defeat another stereotypical scenario where Blacks have been pre-judged or racial profiled.  While these are serious issues affecting the Black community, I desire the day when we as a people will become proactive in our efforts to support individuals and community well-being by raising the bar of what supporting one another should resemble regardless of media bias.
