I hate that I’m not as active as I’d like to be on this blog.
There’s no better feeling than knowing that people, some of them complete strangers, are reading my words. Love it or hate it, but they are reading them.
With that being said, its been a rough year and its hard for me personally to control my mind long enough to put down a daily post, let alone a weekly one.
Between my own work and my own crappy life, its tough to put quality on here. And I’m the type of writer who spits out utter crap when he has to force it.
You all deserve better.
But all that aside, the reason for this post is because of, well, an utter contradiction of what I just said up there.
Right now my mind has become so cluttered that I’ve had to write.
Mainly, about how there is something dangerously wrong with this country.
I mean my country. The US of A.
Most of you, if not all of you I’m sure have been following the events of the last month.
The Michael Brown Case- no indictment against Darren Wilson.
The Eric Gardner case- no indictment against the NYPD cop who choked him to his death.
When did the legal system of the cities of country become more about protecting those in power than protecting and seeking justice for the wronged and the innocent?
When did we lose our way? Or rather, did we even have a “way” to begin with?
Eyewitness testimonies. Video Evidence. Professional opinions from experts.
All because one race can’t allow the other to gain even a sliver of so-called “power”.
I’m sure I don’t need to spell it out for you.
The inherent racism that controls this country, after apparently slumbering within households and hushed conversation for the past 150years is now running rampant again. And what we do as a people now will define our country for millenia.
America, home of the free land of the brave, or home of the oppressed and land of the ignorant?
Rest In Peace to those fallen African-American men women and children who have lost their lives in the name of oppressive power. Wherever they are, I hope they can finally walk without fear.
