One the topics trending on social media since Tuesday was the hug between Bertrand Jean, Botham Jean's brother and Amber Guyger, the woman who murdered him.

Many are asking how can anyone forgive Guyger for her actions

There is a historical aspect to Black people forgiving others that is rooted in Christianity, but was Bertrand Jean and State District Judge Tammy Kemp's embrace of Guyger a bit too much? Why are African Americans in many aspects expected to forgive atrocities committed against them?

Rev. Cornell Brooks, former president and CEO of the NAACP and Visiting Professor of the Practice of Prophetic Religion and Public Leadership at Harvard Divinity School weighed in on the Bertrand and Judge Kemp's embrace of Guyger on Twitter saying:

"I have preached forgiveness for 25 years, BUT using the willingness of Black people to forgive as an excuse to further victimize Black people is SINFUL. America should ask Black people forgiveness for serially asking African Americans to forgive sanctioned Police Brutality."

Brooks spoke with Roland Martin about the notion of Black forgiveness during Thursday's edition of #RolandMartinUnfiltered.

For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me.: https://www.kingjamesbible.me/Jeremiah-8-21/
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.: https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Hosea-4-6/
Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace. Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness. We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men. We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us. For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them; : https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Isaiah-59-9/
