Did you hear about it, me neither! I was reading an article in some news rag that discussed this incident. It seems a Black Female Police Officer shot a unarmed White guy and nobody gave a damn about it. Had this been a White Cop shooting a Black person there would of been riots in the streets, even if the Black guy was armed and had dead babies hanging from his belt.
The fact that the Officer shot the unarmed White guy and was later to be determined a good shoot isn’t the issue. In my opinion it doesn’t matter the color of your skin, cops are not paid to fight every person out there that doesn’t want to comply. If a guy is going to fight a cop, he has every intent to hurt the cop. Of course use of less than lethal means need to be attempted first, but if they don’t work or the cop isn’t provided the opportunity . . .
What America has to realize is that everything that is or has happened to Black people also happens to White people and the 13 percent of the population is Black as a claim for the Black people being more abused than Whites, is an absolute lie. How can you have cities that has 30 to 60 percent Black, use 13 percent as the qualifier? The Washington Post is responsible for this lie. We all know racism and civil unrest sells newspapers, but why is almost all of America so gullible? For the record there are still more White people killed by cops in the U.S., White people just assume the White guy had it coming to him. You don’t see anybody marching in the street over a White person. But, shouldn’t there be more people marching the streets when it happens toa White guy?
As I was saying, everything that Black people have been suffering, there are white folk suffering through it too. But nobody cares to gather the data to show it White people don’t want to know that there are White people that aren’t affluent, educated, and have good family backgrounds. And, none of the other races care if White people suffer anything. Even if it is only 1 or 2 percent of the White populace in this suffering, 1 percent of White people is a much larger number than 1 percent of the Black populace.
So why isn’t anybody else saying this? It could be Whites not wanting to know who is suffering and everybody else not caring if Whites suffer, or not. Or, it could be America is afraid of the Black man. Or, it could be people are making big bucks off racism. Look around, how many people, business, and politicians are riding on the racial divide like it is their road to riches? Because it is! They have a meal ticket and an agenda designed to destroy America.
People in this Country have been lied to so much, that they believe the lies. People are making money off of racial issues, lots of money. And it is all bullshit because nobody is actually doing the research to speak on the topic competently. And, many people won’t even try to discuss these matters unless their opinion meets the status quo. Anybody that does have other opinion haws to worry about reprisal from their jobs to their community. Opposing opinions are quickly forced to shut up, stores quit carrying products from those of different opinion, employers terminate employment of those in conflict with the accepted norm, and so on and so on. And people believe in social media as though it gospel, while more false information is spread through social media than any where else.
Were we wrong to believe the Internet was going to provide us with the necessary information to make informed decision on important matters? The Internet has provided the hatemongers media to spread hate and discontent. I think the problem is, people find it easier to follow than to research for the truth.
Our society has made it uncool to be a White man when every issue raised by other races is championed in one way or another by White people. You may want to hate a White man from years long passed, but why do you hate those that do not follow their forefathers racial hatred to today? How is hate due to the color of my skin, any different than hate due to your skin color? I was reading an article the other day about White organizations, why is it acceptable to have Black, Hispanic, Indian, Chinese, or other race organization but not acceptable to have a White organization? Do we make the assumption that a White organization would support racism any more than the other race organizations? Why is it unacceptable for White people to have an organization that supports their heritage?
Every organization that has a race as part of their name promotes racism. Why? Because just by the name use of race it suggests that the organization is race motivated. And, every such organization should be removed from our society, to be replaced by organizations that support those in need regardless of skin color, and run by people that have the ability to respond to needs rather than skin color.
The answer is simple . . . In order for our society to move forward without ongoing racial divide, we as a society and as a people have to mature beyond skin color, practice equality, and be respectful of one-another. Our Government cannot do this. We need to do this, and it has to be done by all races. It isn’t so hard to do. Just mature beyond skin color and practice being color-blind and equality. Although our Government does not recognize the phrase “All Men are Created Equal” as a Constitutional Right. (The phrase was first used by I believe Hamilton in the Declaration of Independence) we as a people have to and we need to do so strongly, supported by all races. I suppose a better explanation of what I mean here would help. How about, there is no superior race, we are all men of equality.
