I’m not trying to be insensitive about the Minneapolis situation because what these cops did was very unfortunate. However, not all cops are bad. I’ve worked with cops across the world for over 30 years and have only met a handful of crooks wearing badges. Additionally, cops are supposed to have reasonable cause to stop someone. If you are doing something that warrants a police stop, it’s YOUR fault you got pulled over. The police person’s job description does not include “mind-reading”. So, if you get stopped, it’s not the fault of the police person who is doing their job to protect the rest of society from your illegal, dangerous, and otherwise stupid behavior.
On another note, if people wish to amplify their ignorance by being racial, that’s their right whether we like it or not. Scientifically, racism is a shame to the human race because even the whitest wo/man’s mother, wife, sister, and daughter have African DNA thanks to Mitochondrial Eve, but that’s another topic.
QUESTION: why is it when black people are killed, social media is filled with #BlackLivesMatter posts?
Death doesn’t discriminate.
When white, native, asian, mexican, or other races of people are killed, we don’t see a bunch of aggressive and combative posts with #WhiteLivesMatter, #NativeLivesMatter, #AsianLivesMatter, #MexicanLivesMatter, etc.
The act of breathing is a right for ALL living things regardless of skin color or fur and feathers.
Color-coding “lives” only increases the hatred and racial separation. Instead, let’s weaken the racial enemy that runs rampant in our society by posting comments such as #AllLivesMatter and #AnimalsLivesMatter.
Don’t believe me?
Check out this page… how much PEACE do you see here?? If THIS was the answer, it would not always be so violent. SERIOUSLY – is this PEACE? Does this help END racism? NO! It causes many more problems!!
This type of behavior separates us further AND only creates more victims.
Besides, if POTUS has taught us anything, it’s that we cannot 100% BELIEVE or TRUST the media. We see / hear what THEY want us to see / hear and nothing more.
In fact, the George Floyd situation in Minneapolis is a great example of that. We weren’t given all the details about Mr. Floyd until the autopsy statement was released but already people were rioting and creating more victims of violence.
Was the cop(s) wrong? Yes. But that doesn’t mean he (they) killed Mr. Floyd.
That would be like someone who tested positive and died of a stroke but ruling the cause of death (COD) as “Covid” anyway. That would be inaccurate.
Stop taking media at its word and think through the things that irk you the most before acting. You’d be surprised how much you learn through silence and research.
On the other hand, I DO BELIEVE WHOLEHEARTEDLY IN SPEAKING OUT FOR INJUSTICE.
The difference is this… which one are you?
Is YOUR behavior adding to the problem or the solution?
Only you can answer that.
