Will MLB support BLM-Black Lives Matter?

imageThe 2015 MLB All Star Game is held this year in Cincinnati, Ohio and the events leading up to the All-Star game began Friday, July 10th, 2015.  It is an honor for Cincinnati to be selected to host such a major event and everyone’s goal is for it to be a complete success.


However, months and weeks leading up to the 2015 All Star game has been turbulent in Cincinnati, and throughout Ohio.   We can begin with our broken Justice system that plagues our entire state.  One of the greatest problems is how our elected officials, government officials and different stake holders sit back in silence or remain neutral and allow judicial corruption through abuse of power and influence to stifle justice; particularly, in the cases of Honorable Judge Tracie Hunter, John Crawford III, and Tamir Rice.  Citizens have witnessed these injustices and feel polarized toward a system that selectively enforces the law instead of abiding by its creed to provide justice for all.


John Crawford III cannot take his child down to the All-Star game like many will do this week because this father was shot in cold blood by two police while shopping in a Beavercreek Walmart. You won’t see 12-year old Tamir Rice’s at the All-Star game because his life was also cut short by cops who didn’t do their due diligence and decided to shoot first and ask questions later. The honorable Judge Hunter should be conducting the business of the people by fulfilling her elected role as the first African American Juvenile Court Judge in Hamilton County, Ohio but instead, at the delightful pleasure of her political foes, she is burdened with the fear of losing her judgeship and freedom.


What message is being sent when a young black man, who has not committed a crime, can be shot by police and there is no accountability for it? The public is force fed the lie that it was necessary to shoot them immediately and that their deaths were justified; but that is a lie.  They did not deserve to die and they absolutely deserve justice.


What is really being said when hundreds of thousands of provisional votes are in limbo for years because of a Prosecutor’s ( Joe Deters) political agenda to ensure his supported candidate (Judge John Williams) wins an important judgeship position? How can anybody sit back and allow political ploys to be played out at the courthouse at the expense of taxpayers to only  jeopardize Tracie Hunter’s Judgeship that she worked so hard for and freedom.


This is not a game. Individual’s lives and freedom are on the line.  All people, organizations, and major corporations like MLB who are against the injustices toward all these individuals, we simply ask for you to stand on the side of Justice.  Don’t opt to ignore the obvious wrongs in our state and all across the county.  The question is simple: Will MLB support BLM-Black Lives Matter or will they remain silent?


It’s not the words of our enemies that we will remember but the silence of our friends. 

-Dr. Martin Luther King

Should MLB speak against Injustice or remain silent
