The case of Ronald Greene, a Black man tortured and murdered by Louisiana State Police, is a reflection of the cruelties of systemic racism prevalent in American society; from white supremacist law enforcement to the indifference of political leaders.

According to long-withheld body-camera footage from Louisiana State Police, “white troopers jolting Greene with stun guns, punching him in the face and dragging him by his ankle shackles as he pleaded for mercy and wailed, “I’m your brother! I’m scared! I’m scared!”

But in a scandalous coverup, Greene was reported killed in a car crash as he supposedly fled police. This is what was told to Greene’s family. Never mind the troopers treated Greene like an animal - albeit the animalistic nature came from the troopers themselves and the cover-up by the Louisiana Governor contains the indifference of animal behavior also.

Disregarding the family of Greene, for two years, Louisianan Gov. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, never told the family what really happened because he “was immersed in a difficult reelection campaign when he received a text message from the head of the state police: Troopers had engaged in “a violent, lengthy struggle” with a Black motorist, ending with the man’s death.”

But in an act of sheer selfishness and white privilege, he kept the truth to himself and out of the media. “Some observers of Edwards’ response to the Greene case see it as partly political calculation. At the time of the deadly arrest, the centrist Democrat was in a tough reelection campaign in a deeply conservative state against a Republican backed by Donald Trump. His path to reelection depended on high Black turnout and crossover support from law enforcement.”

This sickness of white privilege and disregard for human life - if that life happens to be nonwhite - is the epitome of systemic racism that lawmakers swear does not exist and who have passed laws making it illegal to discuss or teach about.

They claim that whites today are not responsible for the crimes of their forefathers yet the crimes of their forefathers are still practiced today, so shut the hell up about CRT. The beatings, murders, injustice and legal discrimination against people of color today, echo of 400-years of oppression.

Politicians like Florida Gov. Ron DiSantis can pass all the fearmongering laws they want against CRT and America’s history. White people will be held accountable for their actions whether they like it or not.

“No one has yet been charged with a crime in Greene’s death and only one of the troopers involved in his arrest has been fired. Master Trooper Chris Hollingsworth, who was recorded saying he “beat the ever-living f--- out of” Greene, died in a car crash in 2020 soon after learning he would lose his job.”
