An 8-year-old Black girl was shot to death near the location of a widely publicized police homicide in a Wendy’s parking lot last month, sparking unrest across the nation. The 8–year–old Secoriea Turner, has yet to be memorialized by Black Lives Matter.
This video brought me to tears.
This is a message from the parents of 8-year-old Secoriea Turner,
who was fatally shot near the same Wendy’s Rayshard Brooks was killed at in Atlanta.
Her life mattered.

While groups like Black Lives Matter & Antifa set fire to businesses, tear down historical monuments and even assassinate police officers in the streets, they continue to ignore the overwhelming black on black crime rates that continue to ravage black communities, while the statistically anomalous police involved shootings dominate the airwaves.
