If we keep staying divided over a stupid thing like skin color and cultural differences, only the group with the power and connections survives and wipes out the other groups. We’re too fabulous for anyone to get left behind!
I get tired of justifying my existence and anger at my country sometimes to some people who feel that they’re being left behind because they’re losing preferential treatment in order to make things fairer for all, which is how it should have been done the entire time from 1789 until now.
You don’t get to say that something is a “sin problem” just to absolve yourself of any culpability in the mess in which you actually live (but don’t want to admit that you live there). That’s the equivalent of blaming someone else for something you did wrong.
I am not going to shy away from painful and hard conversations about racial inequality in America and America’s constant need to uphold white supremacy above all things. I am not here to make you more comfortable talking about race by not showing my anger in discussing it. I do not feel sorry that it makes you uncomfortable or scared. I’m trying to live.
May God bless and preserve and change Baltimore for the better. RIP Freddie Gray. May some good come out of this. I just hate the cost at which it came.
This is my take on race relations in the U.S. in the lens of the decision to not indict Eric Garner’s killer, even though the coroner ruled the death a homicide and said the cause of death was external pressure applied to Garner’s chest and neck, preventing breathing.
