When I was younger than 15 cops would question me and if they didn't like my answers they would beat me and put guns in my face. Did anybody give a
#? No, I'm not white so it doesn't matter. When a black kid commits a misdemeanor you're ready to throw the book at him, when a white kid commits a
drug felony you're running around trying to arrange a rehab bed for him. YOU ARE PATHETIC AMERICA. # YOU!
Yep. That's the perfect attitude and response to have.
Give me a break bro. You being singled out and beaten with guns shoved in your face just because you are black is like me being elected president just
because I am white. Neither one is going to happen JUST because of skin color and nothing else.
Yes police brutality exist. Yes some police officers abuse their power. Yes there is still racism in America.
I know these things. I haven't turned a blind eye towards this type of behaviour.
But you know what?
For every abusive cop, there are 1,000's more that aren't.
For every racist person, there are MILLIONS more who are not.
A big chunk of that video was about police corruption in Chicago. Well then obviously, SOMETHING needs to be done. There needs to be an independant
investigation and punishment needs to be administered. However, the actions of a Chicago police officer has nothing to do with a police officer from
Pumpkin Nuts, Arkansas or Los Angeles, California.
You can not judge the character of all by the actions of one.
This country has lost some very important foundations in society -
Respect For Your Fellow American: When is the last time you said Yes Sir/Ma'am, No Sir/Ma'am, Please and Thank you to a stranger? When is the last
time you held the door open for a starnger? When is the last time you Smiled and said Hi to a stranger?
Responsibility for Your Actions: When is the last time you stood up and admitted wrong doing, even if it meant you would be punished?
Society Before Self: When's the last time you checked on a sick, elderly, or poor neighbor to see if there was anything you could do for them?
When's the last time you offered to help someone else who needed it?
America USED to stand for these things, but as time goes by these ideals are becoming harder and harder to find in society.
Today, we would rather spend $70,000 on a new ski boat for ourselves instead of helping the family next door that is struggling to keep their children
fed and clothed.
Crime is not the result of an individual that has failed society.
It is the result of a society that has failed the individual.
Think about that and understand it.
