For years I have known that the quest my sister (Windy Hempstead) and I have set out on to obtain justice for the murder of poor, black, mentally disabled, Muslim, prisoner Darren Rainey was going to be a hard one. Why? Because I’ve learned throughout my life that most people in this World don’t believe the lives of certain people have the same value/worth as others. Most people discriminate or are racist against certain races and groups and the people they discriminate against or are racist against, they place below themselves and put a lesser value on their lives. Out of the 6 classes of people I can think of that are most disliked in America (especially the South) Darren Rainey fit into 5 of the 6 groups. Poor people, African American people, mentally disabled people, Muslim people and prisoners are 5 of the 6 most disliked peoples in America. Rainey was a poor, black, mentally disabled, Muslim, prisoner and that is why my sister (Windy) and I knew this would be a hard fight. I think what people are failing to see is that the fight for justice for Rainey is not just a fight for Rainey, it’s a fight for the value of life; it’s a fight to show that all life has value; it’s a fight for all poor people, all black people, all mentally disabled people, all Muslim people and all prisoners. Will you please join Windy, Jeremy and me in this fight for the value of life? Just like your life has value, Rainey’s life has value, and all life has value.
I’m asking that you please send emails to Alicia Garza, Rev. Al Sharpton of The National Action Network, Rev. Jesse Jackson of The Rainbow Push Coalition and any member of the Black Lives Matter movement you know and ask them for help in obtaining justice for the murder of Darren Rainey.
