I am his great nephew, I been around for 29 years. I heard of him multiple times by my nana his sister. It hurts me to know that I could of had more cousins that would have actually spent time with me like his family had. His family loved me very much. They made me who I am today. Nana was always there for me when I needed her. When I lost her I watched my family fall apart. It's funny I use to hate cops til Nana told me his story. Often I wished to know him. He use to visit my baby sister and talk to her and she use to tell me about it. I met my grandmother his mom and loved her she was great and I know she raised him well. My Nana is a sweetheart she never was racist. She taught me despite being treated like shit by all races, because I'm half Mexican, that you don't have to let racism win. Racism is just fear. I don't judge anyone by the color of their skin because of her. I judge people by their actions. I want this world to be a better place. It's not about your skin color or clothing preference it's the way you treat others. I wish people would treat others the way they wanted to be treated. It's in every religion. Sorry I read both sides before I decided to write this. I know what happened cause I've dealt with racism my whole life. It's ugly very ugly. When people say you're racist they usually are the racist ones.
