Racism Issues

In the news, we many times are aware of stories containing an unjust plot line. The story of Jo Ann Henderson and her deceased father, Joe, is a compelling story with connections to racial profiling and the corrupt justice system of the times. Jo Ann’s father was murdered before she was even born by a mob of around 20 white men. Charges were never pressed and the police filed the report as “racial fight”. The reason this case is so controversial, is that the neighborhood the Henderson family had recently moved into was in the process of changing from being an all white neighborhood to being a mixed neighborhood. Jo Ann is now looking for answers, she wants to know why and how. This story sheds light on how society’s eyes can be obscured based only on race and color. This article is very informative and shows real life situations in how our society has failed us because of skin color.
