CHARLESTON CHURCH SHOOTING
The State of Connecticut African-American Affairs Commission mourns with the City of Charleston, South Carolina. On June 17th the nation was brought to its knees by a deranged, racist who sought to use terrorist tactics to execute innocent, God loving people who were worshiping during bible study. Such an abominable act against people of African descent is regrettably sown into the fabric of America. The institution of slavery was the tool used to foster the economic prosperity for this country, both in the South and North. This institution also led to the establishment of the KKK, the sanctioned lynching of black people, the massacre of the black residents of "Black Wall Street" in 1921 (Tulsa, OK), creating and arming white militias to bring back "run-aways", the Jim Crow Laws and church bombings.
