Mother was busy ranting, asking the calm unarmed police man who was the last to leave the house why they were arresting Uche, he told her that he was a suspect in a bank robbery at Osiosioma. She had denied it, she had pleaded with the unarmed police to let her son go that he was no thief. She had defended him saying that his son had never stolen his entire life, that he was one that never looked for trouble. The disbelief that graced my eyes, the disappointment that slammed my ears at mother’s words made me uncomfortable.
We cannot continue to feel this pain, to watch this horror unfold. What you do to every black man, you do to all the race across the world. You might think it is subjecting, but it is objectifying. That was a human being. We have taken enough, we have bled enough, our mothers have cried enough. Stop this! Stop it! Stop doing this to blacks! It is not an illusion, it is real. We can see it better now. The world is watching. We are your daughters and sons as well, two eyes, two feet, two hands, one head, just a different colour. We are your friends, teachers and colleagues as well, dependable, resilient, workable, confidant, reliable, just a different colour and a different hair. Is it not a deficient. Treat us better. Stop this show of madness. It has aired for far too long.
