The most recent cover of TIME Magazine has gone viral.

Featuring a photograph from an aspiring 26-year-old West Baltimore native named Devin Allen, the black and white image of a young black man running in the streets of Baltimore with a sea of police officers behind him has people talking.

Although a striking image, what is most impacting and sad about the cover is the caption, “America, 1968” with the year 2015 etched above it along with the statement, “What has changed. What hasn’t.”

See the cover below.

  1. Things will only get better when the black man is no longer perceived as the aggressor. So long as society and law enforcement agencies see them as potentially attacking them, police will be quicker to use deadly force as opposed to other races. If those who wear the uniform are respected by virtue of the position they hold, then, will police be able to be arbitrator instead of the perceived bullies with a badge.

    47 years ago blacks burned Baltimore over the death of MLK. This week blacks burn Baltimore over the death of a drug dealer. This is real progress for the black community. Know what else is funny? The Rite Aid that blacks burned out this week is on Martin Luther King Boulevard! What a joke.

  3. As I have said before, this Country is No Better than the countries the United States have bombed! It’s no wonder groups like ISIS want to destroy this racist, evil, hateful “Devil” country.

    The cave n!@@ers will be vanquished. These neanderthal apes should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

    Our biggest mistake is when the Moors went to different countries as rulers, they civilized other groups and made them believe they were equal. The Moors should have left them in caves and barns.

    Still the same as always, Blacks do not work and achieve, still having kids with no daddies, still on Welfare, still doing drugs, still in gangs, still predisposed to criminal behavior. No nothing has changed. They still have not become like white people yet.
