Police shootings in Texas and Black People:
If you have been living under a rock: I am sure that within the first five minutes of your emergence from underneath it, you have noticed that we never run out of problems. In reaction to the shooting of two black men by police officers, people went out to protest (without thinking first) and more people (police officers) died. Before I get to the situation, I blame the black leadership in America (Not Obama since he is a leader that happens to be black—but others like Al Sharpton). We have seen these black leaders get fat over the years while their people have been going no where fast. They are similar to a man you hire to watch your kids while you are away. When you return, he tells you, “someone kidnapped your kids… can you believe people kidnap children?” and you answer, “why did you think we hired you?” That is exactly what the black leadership is doing: they stand to address a crowd of their people and say, “can you believe racism exists?! That is sooo wrong!!” and what have you done about it? WHAT DID YOU DO SO FAR BECAUSE NOTHING HAS CHANGED?! Instead they are similar to an ambulance that always shows up AFTER a person has been declared dead—hoping that the sounds of the sirens and the flashing lights will make them forget about the person who just died—DIED due to their own incompetency! They show up talking arrogantly—hoping that the picture that the family members of the victims take with them is enough. IT IS AN UGLY PICTURE!
The black leadership is uniting black people in hatred and not in thoughtful solutions. A hatred towards white people that is supported by other groups and cultures. We all have people who hate us: some have a good reason to and other don’t. Uniting them by a common hatred is a losing game. All people in this world have either enslaved black people or benefited from their enslavement. Today in America, we have an economy that is based on the enslavement of black people where no remedy has been implemented. Hence, if you are benefiting from this economy, you are benefiting from the enslavement of black people. It is no longer a white thing and it never was to begin with. Just because your ancestors enslaved a different group of black people; remember that in relation to slavery, it does not matter which group—all black people were seen as the same. Hence, imagine them to be the black people who your ancestors have enslaved wherever you came from. That is what is needed for a just solution. There are racist people from every culture. White. Indian. Arab. Jewish. Persian. Chinese. So why is the solution for racism the replacement of blacks with whites? It should not be and no one should approve of a solution that attempts to do that as it is not addressing the problem but merely attempting to conjure up a new one.
Black people: You know that the law is against you. It would be a miracle of all miracles if the law is against you, but we can enforce it as if it is not against you. Hence, the police officer is your key witness that the law is against you since he is not able to enforce it on you without him being against you and without seeing evidence of it being against you. HE IS NOT YOUR ENEMY BUT THE ENFORCER OF A LAW THAT IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE BEFORE HE SHOWED UP. HE IS YOUR KEY WITNESS. It is not possible for the police to enforce the law without being against black people. Not because he is racist. But because the law (which we voted on) has neglected black people (no one cares about black people except with empty words and gestures).
Black people are fired up. They are sick of their status. And they are in the streets looking for a sense of direction. THEY ARE LOOKING FOR A SENSE OF DIRECTION—ONLY TO BE GREETED BY SENSELESS LEADERS WHO BARK UP A STORM WITHOUT GIVING THEM ANYTHING BUT A HEADACHE. Black leaders need to sit down with their people and come up with reasonable solutions so that when they march, there is a sense of purpose in it. WHAT ARE YOU MARCHING FOR? CURRENTLY, THE ANSWER IS COMING IN A FORM OF CHAOS THAT SAYS, “WE HAVE NO CLUE!”
REASONABLE SOLUTIONS: a reasonable solution cannot be 40 acres and a mule. The 40 acres and a mule is the slavery exchange rate—meaning that it is meant to make the black man the master and the rest of us his slaves. Because if you have 40 acres, you need people to care for them–hence it will make us your slaves if you get 40-acres. And I am not going to be your slave black man. So sorry about the rejection of this 40 acres and a mule demand. THAT REQUEST IS ALREADY DENIED. More than 90 percent of people do not have 2 acres yet alone 40. That is not a reasonable demand–but if you make it so, then you are making slavery reasonable. If you demand the 40 acres and the mule, then slavery was okay—since senseless reasoning is a must. A reasonable demand is based on caring. Caring about black people and others. You are not trying to come up with a revenge strategy. And you should expect that the demand is unique to the condition of black people today. Meaning that education may not be the best thing for them right now. Meaning that what we value may not be the most appropriate thing for them right now. You will not improve their condition by assuming that it made no difference in their perspective towards life. I would imagine that they need something unique that gives them a sense of value in themselves, that allows them to be themselves and express it without the restriction of professionalism, and something that is empowering and does not negate their experience. YOU SHOULD NOT COME UP WITH A LIST THAT LOOKS LIKE THIS:
1) COLLEGE TUITION.
2) JOB TRAINING in Data Entry. (kill them instead as far as they are concerned! That is how off you would be from where they are today).
The ideas have to be mindful of their unique experience and personality.
I said that the law is against black people. What do I mean by that? To rob someone is against the law. The law offers you a sense of protection and it is on your side only if you have things for others to steal. Black people do not. They are not protected by that law—and now the law is just against them without offering them protection. WE HAVE SOMETHING THAT IS CALLED: EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW. But the law is NA (not applicable) to black people except when it is applied against them. That in itself makes them more likely to break it.
Legislation that demands more from police officers is a legislation that will endanger their lives (lives of police officers). The problem is not the police. The police officers are not blind “pigs”. They are very aware that black people have nothing to lose. And they are very aware that a person who has nothing to lose will be more likely to gamble with his own life (and that of the police officer’s) than someone who has something to lose. Take “Having something to lose” away from anyone, and the police has to make up for it in reaction. AND THAT IS THE TRUTH. THE POLICE HAS THE RIGHT TO BE MORE DEFENSIVE WHEN FACING A BLACK PERSON UNDER THEIR CURRENT CONDITION BECAUSE IT ATTESTS THAT THEIR CONDITION DEVALUES THEIR LIVES…AND THE POLICE IS YOUR KEY WITNESS IN THAT. THE WRONG IS THAT BLACK PEOPLE HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE! FIX THAT WRONG INSTEAD OF DEMANDING THAT RIGHT IS DONE ONTO IT BY IGNORING THE FACT THAT THIS WRONG IS REAL. “Pretend oh police officers that I am just as well off as everyone else…and treat me as if I have plenty… ALTHOUGH I DO NOT!” THAT IS WHAT THE NATION IS DEMANDING: HOW CAN YOU ASK OFFICERS TO APPROACH THE SITUATION IN THE SAME MANNER WHEN IT IS NOT THE SAME ALREADY?! DO NOT PUT THEIR LIVES AT RISK ANY MORE THAN IT ALREADY IS.
Then there is the placement of camera’s on police cars as if that is the place where humans harvest their integrity from. A CAMERA IS NOT THE PLACE THAT PEOPLE GET THEIR INTEGRITY FROM. HENCE, YOU ARE MESSING UP THE INTEGRITY OF INTEGRITY ITSELF WITH THAT GESTURE. REMOVE THE CAMERAS BECAUSE YOU ARE HARMING THE POLICE OFFICER (THE PERSON HIM/HERSELF). YOU ARE HARMING THEM AS PEOPLE WHO ARE MORE THAN POLICE OFFICERS. YOU ARE MESSING WITH THEIR HEADS AND THE NATURAL VALUE SYSTEM THAT IS IN EVERY HUMAN BEING. THEY SHOULD NOT RELY ON A CAMERA TO KEEP THEIR INTEGRITY IN CHECK—BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT S/HE IS THERE FOR. PEOPLE EXIST AND THEY KEEP THEIR OWN INTEGRITY IN CHECK AS PEOPLE.. FIX THE CONDITION THAT BLACK PEOPLE ARE UNDER SO THAT THE OFFICERS CAN BREATHE A SIGH OF RELIEF. AND PLEASE REMOVE THE STUPID CAMERAS THAT INSTIGATE HATRED TOWARDS THE SELF AS THEY TAKE AWAY FROM THE REASON WHY A PERSON EXISTS. THEY ARE MORE THAN OFFICERS ON DUTY. THEY ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE LIVES AND BRAINS THAT NEED TO BE USED IN OTHER PLACES TOO. Plus: they should not be thinking about how they will appear on camera on top of the other things they have to worry about. “how can I approach this so that it does not look like I am a racist”—police encounters are not the same as having a cocktail with friends. They will be defensive in their nature (that is why they are here). They want to turn him into Mother Teresa—a stupid version that only calculates the situation by dismissing its importance.
WELL: THAT IS WHAT I THINK.
