    Day 16 of Black History Month and I’m honoring Flip Wilson. He was an American comedian and actor best known for his television appearances during the late 1960s and 1970s. From 1970 to 1974, Wilson hosted his own weekly variety series The Flip Wilson Show, and introduced viewers to his recurring character Geraldine. The series earned Wilson a Golden Globe and two Emmy Awards, and it was the second highest-rated show on network television for a time. Wilson was the first African American to host a successful TV variety show.

    JUSTICE FOR CASEY GOODSON

    On December 4th, 2020, Casey Christian Goodson Jr. (23 years old) was shot three times in the back and murdered by a Sheriff’s Deputy as he was entering his home in Columbus, Ohio. Goodson’s family stated that he was returning home from a dentist appointment, holding a Subway sandwich, his face mask, and his keys, when he was shot.

    Two days later, the Columbus Police Department made a statement alleging that Jason Meade, the deputy responsible for Goodson’s death, saw a man believed to be Goodson with a gun while driving. Meade then approached Goodson after he exited his car and walked home, where he was shot.

    Hours after the shooting, the US Marshal for the Southern District of Ohio, Peter Tobin, confirmed that Goodson was not the fugitive they were searching for. However, Tobin also added that he believed that the shooting was justified, claiming that Goodson was shot after he refused to drop his “weapon.”

    Yet another Black man murdered by the police.

    DEMAND JUSTICE.

    Correction as of 12/8: The second page of the graphic had a typo. The deputy who killed Goodson is Jason Meade, not James Meade.

    I'm starting to think, "by the time we (POC) will have been given a fair chance in this RACIST COUNTRY, there likely won't be very many of us left". THIS MUST END!
