Girl’s speech goes viral as another black is shot dead
WASHINGTON : As a nine-year-old black girl tearfully pleaded for respect for her community in North Carolina, another black man was killed by police in California on Tuesday.
“It’s a shame that our fathers and brothers are killed and we can’t see them anymore,” Zianna Oliphant told Charlotte city council.
“It’s a shame that we have to go through that graveyard and bury him. We need our fathers and brothers to be by our side. I feel like that we are treated differently than other people. I don’t like how we’re treated. Just because of our colour doesn’t mean anything to me.”
And now in El Cajon, California, Alfred Olango was shot dead for behaving “erratically”.
