Let's see how the people try to spin this one…

It's no secret racism is alive and well in America — and we're not even talking about the Republican National Convention's intern pic!

No, we're unfortunately talking about YET ANOTHER instance of police shooting an unarmed black man for literally no reason… but this case out of Miami may finally effect some real change.

That's because while Alton Sterling and Philando Castile's deaths were caught on camera, neither were able to share their sides of the story… but luckily, the latest victim of police brutality survived.

47-year-old Charles Kinsey works as a behavior therapist to autistic and other special needs young adults in North Miami, but when a 23-year-old patient wandered away from their group home on Monday, neither probably expected to get shot.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened when cops

We're just glad no one on either side died.

Racial tensions are currently reaching an all-time high throughout the country as more and more Black Lives Matter supporters have begun protesting the senseless killings of black men at the hands of police.

Alton Sterling and Philando Castile are just two high profile examples of recent police brutality, and despite the deadly Dallas Sniper shooting that claimed five lives last week, Baton Rouge is still facing backlash from its residents.

Take note, Beyoncé!

Solange isn't the only celebrity speaking out about the Black Lives Matter movement following the recent high profile police killings of black men… but she is one of the few actually doing something to help.

That's because the 30-year-old R&B singer and her husband Alan Ferguson were spotted taking part in peaceful protests in Baton Rouge over the weekend in honor of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

In a series of tweets on Sunday, Solange recounted how the only violence she experienced while walking in the Louisiana march on Saturday came from authorities, saying:

The disturbing display was posted in the wake of two police shootings that killed Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, and on the same night that five cops were killed by a sniper in Dallas.

Another officer on the force also shared the snap on Twitter.

We are absolutely horrified that there are people who would actually post something so offensive, especially following these terrible tragedies.

We are even more disgusted that the awful image was shared by the very people who have been enlisted to protect and serve this country's civilians.

Both cops have been placed on paid suspension while they await a hearing over the incident.

The MPD isn't commenting on the motive for the controversial snap, but Interim Director Mike Rallings was outraged by the picture, saying:
