Hello zobopians! History always seem to have a way of repeating itself. In 1967 Newark a young kid, Joe Bass Jr., was gunned down in the streets during the riots there. Fast forward to 2014 Ferguson, Missouri and another young kid gets gunned down in the street. No less by cops in both situations! We never seem to learn from our own or anyone’s mistakes. We citizens of Black America keep crossing the same rivers of blood. Our own blood no less.

Here are two pictures from LIFE magazine, 1967, to ponder the ‘deja vu’ of our existence in America.
