A Fighter For Blacks: Attorney Ben Crump is Really Doing the Works of God For the Blacks in America

Attorney Benjamin Crump is indeed a fighter for blacks. He is not a pastor, but what this man is doing for the black people in America is actually the works of God. Because no service is as great as being there for your fellow men, and alleviating the plight of your fellow humans.

Attorney Ben Crump has been in the spotlight of civil rights for long years, but personally, I began to follow him up when George Floyd's issue came up. Since then I've been trying to keep up with his activities for the black people in America.

He's the attorney hired by George Floyd's family to represent them, following the death of Floyd in the hands of the Minneapolis police officers on May 25th.

Born on October 10th, 1969, Ben Crump is a civil rights attorney with a specialization in civil rights and personal injury cases. He gained international reckoning when he began handling some top high-profile cases for the blacks in America. Some of those cases are - the cases of Trayvon Martins, Michael Brown, the Flint Water Crisis, the Johnson and Johnson Baby Powder, etc.

So Attorney Ben Crump is not new in the game of defending the black people in America. He is always pushing for the eradication of systemic racism and police brutality against the black people in the country.

In 2020 alone, he has handled three high-profile cases that involved the unjust killing of three black people in America - Ahmaud Arbery, the 25-year-old black man that was shot to death near Brunswick in Georgia while jogging. Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old black emergency medical technician shot to death in Louisville by three police officers while on narcotics investigation. And then George Floyd, the 46-year-old man killed in Minneapolis by police officers on allegations of trying to use a fake 20 dollar bill to make a purchase at a store.

In 2012, Attorney Ben Crump represented a 20-year-old black American called Ronald Weekley Jr., who was beaten to death in California by the police.

That same year, when Alesia Thomas, a black American, died while in police custody, Ben Crump was also hired to represent her.

In 2014, when a young black American called Tamir Rice was killed by police in Ohio, Ben Crump was the attorney hired by his family to represent them.

In 2014 when the Flint Water Crisis became a public health crisis, Ben Crump held several rallies for communities that were affected by the crisis.

In 2015, he was also the attorney that represented the family of the black boy called Kendrick Johnson, who was found dead in his school in Georgia.

In 2016, he also represented the family of Terrence Crutcher, a black man who was shot dead by a police officer in Tulsa.

We can go on and on talking about the cases that he has handled for black people in America. In 2017, he investigated the death of the popular black American rapper Tupac Shakur in a TV documentary series that was titled Who Killed Tupac?

Another major one was in 2018 when he hosted the Evidence of Innocence, a TV documentary series that was focused on people who had served a minimum of 10 in prison after being wrongfully convicted of a crime.

Ben Crump hopes to use his status to impact the larger society, and make America a safer place for the marginalized people, especially the black community.

The blacks have lived for long years with the frustrations and pains of racial disparity and discrimination, but Attorney Ben Crump has been using his might to fight for equity and justice for all races in America, especially the black people.

The sacrifices that Ben Crump has done for America cannot be overemphasized. He believes that black lives matter, and that we must continue to push until we get a better society where there won't be any form of racism or discrimination against people of color.

Attorney Ben Crump has been holding rallies that seek justice for the black people who have suffered unjust treatment in the hands of the system.

Even his social media accounts are dedicated to preaching the message of change, and justice for the black people.

This man is indeed a fighter for the blacks, his strength is truly inspiring. We cannot pretend that racism doesn't exist, but when we have voices like that of Ben Crump's who rise to condemn and speak against it, then we will truly be on the path to getting a better world for all colors.

And I hope that the efforts of Ben Crump in America will never be in vain. And someday, may all forms of racism and discrimination against the black people in America be completely wiped off.

Please drop some nice words for this fighter, and let's pray he continues to do more for the blacks in America.
