There’s been a lot of talk about #Forgiveness in the African American community.

Many are calling it “conditioning” by our society, and something that should come to an end.

I hope these opinions don’t become a reality.

#AmberGuygerSentencing

If the actions of #BothamJean’s brother, the black officer, and the black judge, were somehow a form of “conditioning”— I wish all of us were conditioned to do the same.

#Forgiveness
#Forgiveness is not a shameful thing.

In fact, it’s something I’ve always admired about the African American community.

It’s just a shame that it’s always your community who’s put in the position of needing to forgive.

BREAKING: A jury in Dallas has reached a decision in the Amber Guyger trial. They found the 31 year old guilty of murdering Botham Jean. dfw.cbslocal.com/2019/10/01/dal…
The jury could have convicted Amber Guyger of murder, manslaughter or acquitted her. She now faces between 5 and 99 years in prison and will be sentenced later today. Botham Jean’s attorneys said the jury sent questions about the Castle Doctrine measure while deliberating.
According to some legal experts, the judge may have been appeal-proofing the the Amber Guyger trial outcome by including Castle Doctrine and “mistake of fact.” An appeals court may have more easily overturned the conviction if jurors weren’t allowed to consider both. #BothemJean
