Michael Brown’s Mother Emotional Talk on The Steve Harvey Show
Ferguson has been in the spotlight since August 9th and rightfully so. From the death of Michael Brown, protestors jailed and a cop recently shot the unrest in Ferguson continues. Often times in the media, a story makes headlines and months later its impact is forgotten. But we won’t forget this time.
Brown’s mother Lesley McSpadden told the news that peace would not return to Ferguson until justice was served. Justice we are still waiting on. A police chief’s apology does not bring McSpadden’s son back and while she has taken to the streets and attended galas with Rev. Al Sharpton often the hurt and pain is till pierced in her eyes. A woman should never have to bury her child.
McSpadden recently went on the The Steve Harvey Show and brings the reality of loosing a child and her grief to the public. The reality she lives everyday and what she is doing to cope. We stand with McSpadden and of the mothers suffering from such lost.
“He was meek. He was humble. He was tall. He was mine,” said McSpadden.
I think we often forget the last statement as we all react in fury, we add Brown’s name to the list of unarmed Black boys killed by White police… but, we sometimes forget he is not just an example, a wake up call… he is the possession of mother Lesley McSpadden.
McSpadden’s lawyer, Benjamin Crump, is seen in the video and tells us that he hopes the jury will have a decision by early October.
