Two years after South Carolina police officer Michael Slager shot unarmed Walter Scott to death, the former officer plead guilty in federal court. Like fellow South Carolina native Dylann Roof, Slager could face life prison. While one Race Soldier may be held criminally liable for terrorizing with a badge, the officers who killed Alton Sterling during the summer of 2016 will not indicted. There were a myriad of reactions to the decision in Louisiana, including Louisiana State University’s decision to inform their student athletes that no school paraphernalia is to be worn if they choose protest or publicly address the non-indictment. Days after whites mandated the recognition of the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, many across the country drew comparisons to Jordan Edwards – an unarmed 15-year-old black male killed by enforcement officers in Texas. Like the beating of Rodney King, there’s video footage of Edwards final minutes of life. As of Friday, a murder warrant was issued for the arrest of Roy Oliver, the Race Solider who killed Edwards. On the other side of the planet, Marine Le Pen hopes to claim victory in this weekend’s French presidential election. It could be the Donald Trump redux, as some Whites in France fear publicly endorsing Le Pen could lead to accusations of racism.
